The show started late and we stood outside the coliseum from 6:30 until 7:30. Then they had technical sound issues throughout the show and Mystical Soulchild could not hear himself singing. After Jarule performed 10:30 pm, the audience waited for more than 30 minutes for Erikah to come to the stage while they worked on her sound. At 10:50 still no band. By this point there DJ had long stopped and playing music and everyone was getting restless!!! We had to leave because we have babysitting only until midnight and I was SURE the concert would be over by this point!!! What AN EXTREME DISAPPOINTMENT!!!! We had heard that Erikah puts on a great show. But this concert was an unorganized mess!!!! TRULY UNPROFESSIONAL!!! The artist that we did see tonight were great and thank you for your performance.

I attended Badu's concert at Ravinia this past weekend and she was a huge disappointment. At first, I thought it was only me but as I watched people gradually trickle out the door, I quickly realized others shared my sentiment. She was frequently offbeat and for some odd reason she chose not to spend time singing her hits. Instead, she wasted time singing unpopular songs. Because she started nearly 1 hour late, it really mattered that she wasted time with these unpopular selections. Overall, she did a lot of prancing around the stage but never seemed to get into her own show. It was a waste of time and money, and sad to watch.

2 HOURS LATE!?!?!?!

Erykah was two hours late?! My husband and I left because we were tired of waiting and standing around. This is unacceptable behavior towards the fans...There were no flight delays or traffic in San Francisco at the time.... No excuse!!! We all don't have time to waste. Very disappointed.

NO ⭐️

Sadly, no rating. We didn’t see Badu. We left after waiting for 4 hours. I’m sure she was awesome. Just thought it was rude. And a waste of a fans money.

Three hours and still no performers. I paid good money and never saw anything. I got sick in the heat and almost passed out. Very rude and disappointing
