I saw Anita in concert in Houston last night and she was not her usual classy self. The concert started about 45 minutes late, but that was fine since most of the audience hadn't made their way into the stadium yet. Also, she said that she delayed the start of the show to accommodate the audience, which was fair. But when she did sing, I actually thought she was drunk. She forgot some lyrics, she was rude to sound engineers and other stage hands and also to some fans up from. But she also made some kind gestures in talking directly to some of the fans up front. All-in-all, it was disappointing to see her in concert this time. I had seen her in Dallas about 4 or 5 years earlier and she was great, her voice was so close to record quality. She did a lot of yelling/singing at the Houston concert. She seemed out of sorts at times. My date and I left just before the show ended. We had both seen enough.

Over an hour late hitting the stage, and no opening act. Too much screaming and not enough singing! Why would you open your act with someone else’s song? Microphones way too loud. Left early very disappointed.

Love Anita Baker. I took 5 friends along to AA Convention. Center in Dallas for her show on 12-17-23 . Soooo much wasted time in her performance feeling to us like she’s just killing time on stage . Glimpses of her beautiful voice could be heard from time to time but I was begging to hear HER sing a song . Yes, an Anita song just her voice not an all over the universe warm the vocal cords play time . We had to reschedule the uber twice for a pick up ( not free ) longing to hear just one of the beautiful songs she made famous. She teased a song and we were so hopeful then dragged the intro so long we had to leave. Anita wake up you’re shooting your self in the foot . Your fans pay your bills .

Show started 30 minutes late. The acoustics and sound system was too loud making Anita Baker’s voice harsh and pitchy. Audience seemed to disregard the waning of talent and were enthusiastic regardless of the quality of the musical performance.

The band was great, unfortunately they were so loud we couldn’t hear Anita. The acoustics were straight jacked up for the whole show!! And Anita spent the whole night blaming everyone from her band director to the venue staff by name. The mess that her fans for over 30 years had to sit through last night could’ve been avoided with more rehearsals and more sound checks at the venue! But again the band was great especially the brother on sax!! Last night they outshined Anita which may be why they were never introduced by name, we found that to be odd too🤔 Also, I don’t think the 5 star reviews were being accurate they obviously had a lot more to drink before the show than us.

Went to see her at the Prudential Center in Newark. Concert starting over 2 hours late with no explanation except the excuse of technical difficulties. Babyface’s set was canceled. Acoustics were dreadful with the band drowning out her singing. She seemed more interested playing air guitar and facing the band versus the audience. Furthermore, she was introduced and then waited over five minutes to appear on stage followed by waving to the crowd. It appeared her affect was off and we ended leaving very early. A forgettable evening to say the least. On the positive side I had no problem getting out of the parking lot.

May 10, 2023 at the Prudential Center in Newark New Jersey the Anita Baker show. And absolutely disappointing debacle A two hour wait before someone came on the stage to inform us that baby face would not be showing up. My daughter brought me to this venue as a Mother’s Day surprise I was surprised and again extremely disappointed I didn’t even stay to see Anita baker if she came on. And absolute waste of my daughter’s money
