ANITA BAKER FAREWELL CONCERT 2018
Excellent crowd excited & happy! The music before Ms. Baker stepped onstage was phenomenal &took u back to the good ole days, when folk enjoyed dancing &singing together. Suddenly the beautiful lights danced & the spectacular band began to play. Live musicians, live background singers & the mother of all REAL singers opened her mouth and the hairs on the back of my arms stood up! Believe me that was a miracle bc I barely have hairs on my arms. She danced & sang from the time she hit the stage until the time she left (8pm - 10:30pm) I kid u NOT! Anita Bakers' voice NEVER waivered, strong & beautiful as ever. Beautiful dress w. heels, the woman seemed to enjoy herself as we all danced,& sang. She allowed the audience to serenade her -I don't want to brag, but our California audience was awesome &on-key! Then she song the entire song back to us & it was awesome! Her next concert soldout! U will not be disappointed! Nice to hear a live band & singers.

Unbelievable. Still the Songstress. My 5th time seeing her. 2 shows, both sellouts. 1st show sold out in 6 hours. A venue record. Great seats. Row F center. Only complaint, not enough. 2 hour show. And WE still look good at 60!!! If shes coming to your town, a must see. For whatever price. Worth it.

ANITA BAKER RYMAN NASHVILLE TN
We saw Anita Baker last night at the Ryman in Nashville. Wow is all I can say...the best concert I have ever attended. She gave her heart and soul into the performance and her voice was perfection. She had energy, wit, and grace. I have loved her music since her first hits and now at 70 years old, I finally got to see her perform in person. It was my 37 year old son's birthday and he loves Anita Baker as much as his mom does and this was a concert we both came away from in total awe of her performance. It was sold out and tonight she is performing there again. How I wish I had purchased tickets for both nights. If she comes out of retirement, I will be there to see her again.

ANITA BAKER IN LOUISVILLE KY
She deserves 10 Stars. Anita Baker was the best! Her voice was perfect and the crowd loved her. I am so happy she didn't have an opening act. She is a class act on her own does not need to share a stage. She gave us two hours of Sweet Love and I loved it. Don't retire Anita, we need more of you!!!!! We had excellent seats and it was worth the $400 we spent. BTW I took my 36 years old daughter and she was singing alone with Anita, I guess she was listening to my CD's after all.

SHE'S STILL GOT IT ! LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY
Concert was on a Wednesday Night. So much love in the air for this lady. Anita you still look good and sound good. She sung so many of her hits that made her famous and loved over the years. The band was rocking! The adoration you felt in the arena was so strong. People singing along at first was drowning her out, but it was beautiful. Of course, she said, "ya better sing!" Beautiful to feel unity and connection from all kinds of people to "one person". Confetti surprise was spectacular! Thank you Anita for a "love" night from someone who still believes in the amazing power and influence of love !
VB from Louisville, Kentucky
One of the best concerts ever. Anita was personable, beautiful and a true songbird for the ages. From the time Anita took the stage thru the last song, the audience stayed pumped! I would totally go see her again. So glad I saw her on her farewell tour. Real music, what a pleasure!!!!!!
Tore from St. Louis, Missouri
I thought the show was great. The audience did sing her songs instead of letting her perform them,, so what she did she re song every song the audience took over which was a real pleasure. She said not only did you get two shows you get two songs. It was great that she did that though we didn't come to hear the audience but it was love. She is so humble. I wish she had sang Joy. Overall I thought it was a great concert. Confetti at the end was special.

ANITA BAKER, ST LOUIS
Having seen Anita live a couple of times back in the day, my expectations were muted by her being 60yrs old now. Man! She shut me down quick on that! She was outstanding and sang as beautifully as ever! She directed the sound adjustments a couple of times. But, she wasn’t disruptive about it. A real pros pro. She’s still got it and didn’t disappoint! Bravo Ms Baker!
Kimberly from Atlanta, Georgia
AN EVENING WITH ANITA BAKER
I had a great seat, front row of the pit, just in front of her pianist. Anita looked beautiful and her voice was enchanting. Her performance was sensual and graceful. She has a way of making you feel like family. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment. As she prepared to end the show, she tossed roses into the audience. I felt very special to have received one and grateful to attend her farewell tour. Anita Baker is my all time favorite singer. I loved the show, I am still feeling the excitement of her performance almost two days later.
Sultry satisfaction from Orlando, Florida
I traveled half way around the world to see Anita perform for her final tour and it was amazing! The audience was electric as Ms Baker sang every song that has made her who she is today! That was by far one of the best concerts I’ve gone to and I hope to see her again before her tour is over. Ms Anita Baker is often immitated but never duplicated !!
Die hard fan from Orlando, Florida
I flew all the way From Chicago to Orlando to see the incomperable Anita Baker and it was well worth my trip! The audience was on fire and the ambiance was electric! My only issue was with Anita constantly checking the sound system which I’ve read happens more often than not. Other than that, this was by far the best farewell tour of all time and I’m hoping to see her one more time before the tour is over! Anita Baker- often immitated never duplicated❤️❤️.
Susan Price from Waycross, GA
ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
What an amazing evening! The concert was excellent from beginning to end. Anita can SING like no one else, and it seems the years have just seasoned her. Her voice is unique and oh so beautiful.and she had us all in the palm of her hand from the minute she stepped on stage. She seemed as genuine as could be...I love that she wore flat shoes...she knew we came to hear her sing, not ooh and ahh over her costumes even though she looked great. We had magnificent seats...my daughter treated me and a friend as my birthday gift this year. Our hotel, the Omni was right across the street! I really would love seeing this show again...yeah that good! She came out and sang a few more songs as an encore because the crowd just wouldn't go home after the show...Loved it!

ANITA BAKER FAREWELL CONCERT SERIES REVIEW
Fabulous concert last night from the great Anita Baker, a true living legend! She gave the sold out crowd a terrific all around performance, singing many of her timeless classic ballads from over her amazing career! Her one of a kind supple voice still sounds flawless to this day! She is one of the greatest vocalists to ever grace any stage! This particular show meant the world to me because she is my favorite female singer and it was the first time seeing her live in concert. It left a lasting impression with me going forward. She is the consummate professional and definitely a perfectionist in her craft while performing on stage! It was truly fascinating watching her perform. She told the crowd how much this tour means to her. This show ranks very high on my list as one of the best concerts I have seen, and I have witnessed many over these years! Definitely go and see Anita if you are able to do so while she is on this Farewell Tour. You will not be disappointed! Grade: Solid A

THE BEST THING YET!
I had seen her perform at Radio City music Hall on February 13th 2018 I cried my way through the show!!! amazing!!! her voice timeless. I've been rewinding the clips I recorded and I feel the goose bumps all over again. I wish she wouldn't retire I would love for my niece to be able to see her show her what real music is.... Thank you Anita Baker you have gotten me through my entire life
Lisa Ordonez from Las Vegas, Nevada
I love the entire show! Anita was great! The whole venue was filled with love and the audience totally enjoyed her and the band and the back up singers. I am so very grateful I had a chance to see her live. She is an all-time great!
Westley Johnson from Las Vegas, Nevada
ANITA FAREWELL AT VENETIAN
She did an excellent job, her voice might even be stronger at 61 than it was at 41 if that's possible, performed from 8:00 to 10:00, had to persuade the sold out crowd to leave, they just could not get enough.

FINALLY, ANITA BAKER FAREWELL TOUR ARRIVES IN HOUSTON,TX
My sweet wife had no idea who we were about to see in concert. Right before our mobile tickets were scanned, I showed her who we were there to see. Was she surprised? You betcha!!! 😊 The concert started a little over an hour late. We did not know what the hold up was, but all was forgiven when the curtain rose. The band began to plan a driving funky groove, then Anita took the stage paying homage to Patti Labelle with an opening rendition of "Lady Marmalade". All in attendance were on their feet. The excitement of the crowd was at a fever pitch. At 61 years of age, Anita's voice was just as sultry, smooth, strong and amazing as it has ever been! Just absolutely jaw-dropping. She was fantastic! Yes, she sang hit after hit. As much as we have all come to treasure her music, to she her live in concert on this farewell tour is something fans should not miss! There are singers, and there are Singers. And then there is "THE SONGSTRESS", ANITA BAKER. I'm a fan for life!!!😊

MADE ME CRY
I have loved Anita Baker for as long as I can remember. In 2019, at the age of 57, I finally had the chance to attend her concert at MGM National Harbor. My husband surprised me with the tickets and I had no idea where our seats were located until we walked into the theater. When we were escorted to our seats, I was overwhelmed with joy as we were in the front row, smack dab in the middle. Absolutely the best seats possible. When Anita Baker walked onto the stage, and I realized how close I was to her, I literally had tears in my eyes. I felt like I was the only person there and that she was performing just for me. It was a dream come true. Her voice is still absolutely amazing. I love her now more than ever.

EXPENSIVE CROWD KARAOKE
I love Anita Baker, was more than excited for her show. All I wanted was to hear her sing her songs, instead I got crowd karaoke, she couldn't be heard. I was torn between the energy of the audience and wanting to hear one of my favorite artists sing her songs. I love Anita Baker, going to miss her.

ANITA BAKER TOUR-JACKSONVILLE
First, let me start by saying I love Anita Baker! She looked amazing for any age. Her voice is still a National Treasure. The concert was sold out! The crowd was amped and ready for her long awaited return to the stage. However, I was completely turned off by her constant berating of the sound crew (embarrassing) and house staff (she complained about the fog machine being used). It was an instant buzz kill from minute one. I could not enjoy her wonderful voice and beautiful songs due to her excessive complaining! I walked out of the concert early just to get away from the negative energy radiating from this truly gifted artist. What a shame! All the right ingredients were present to make for a magical event but her behavior and "Diva Tantrums" left a very foul taste in my mouth. I felt like I parted with my hard earned cash and time to see and hear a very bad "Sound Check" that was masquerading as a concert. Totally unprofessional and disrespectful to an adoring audience.
Ms. Lisa from New York, New York
WHAT HAPPENED? KARAOKE LIKE...
Could not follow along with song choices...just saw her a few months ago in Connecticut. ..and she was amazing. Farewell also...maybe she should have made that the last show..because tonight she seemed extremely tired and the show started late and ended super quick. So! For all you Valentines lovers tomorrow...there's hardly any classic Anita Baker love songs . . . . beware...signing off a disappointed Anita Baker Fan for over twenty years. 😢.

ANITA BAKER AT THE WANG
I Love Anita Bake and was so excited to see her only to listen to the crowd sing most of the songs and when she did sing the acoustics were soooooooo bad. it seemed like the concert was very low budget. Maybe it is a good thing this was her farewell tour
Melidy LaCoste from Atlanta, Georgia
Deeply disappointed! The music was good and her audience sang a good number of her biggest hits. Problem is...I didn't know I was going to an Anita Baker sing along!!! This woman allowed the audience to sing every single song and she was completely drowned out. She didn't even attempt to control her audience so I guess all the jokes me made about being tired weren't really jokes. She's one of my all time favorite female artists but she completely ripped us off. The only thing comparable to my excitement before the show was my disdain during and after. Completely dissatisfied!!!
Shelisa Williams from Las Vegas, Nevada
I attended the show on Friday June 1, 2019. Although Anita Baker can sing, I did not expect the entire show to be a sound check. It was a big waste of my money and time. She sang approx 5 songs because she kept complaining about the reverb, and inability to hear the horns and piano, but that’s what the soundcheck is for.
Annette R from Buffalo, NY
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.
