Whitney Houston performed in Australia for the first time in 12 years last night. It was not well received.
“She couldn’t entertain a dead rat, to be honest,” a fan told local media, according to the AFP.
“Was it an A? No, it was probably a B+,” said Andrew McManus [the concert promoter], “It was not a train wreck. She was hitting most of the notes, yes her throat was a little croaky. She was on stage for two-and-a-half hours dancing, singing, running. Was she a little out of breath on a couple of songs? Yes, she was. But I don’t apologize for that, she had a red-hot go.”
Concert goers reportedly are complaining that Whitney seemed “disoriented, breathless and exhausted.” Her management team claims she was ill. She’ll reportedly have two days to rest before her next performance.
This is sad to hear. I can see where it’s hard to get back in shape and perform live on tour, especially if you’re sick!
Here are two clips of Whitney’s performance in Australia. She really seemed to be struggling in the second clip. What do you think?
Note: get a cup of coffee because these videos are about 5 minutes apiece
