Outside of being an hour late after opening act and the weather didn’t make it better. Erykah’s band came out first playing for 15 minutes REALLY! I was overall disappointed and will not pay to see her again. She finally comes and delivers a ok concert. What a waste not a fan anymore as far as paying to see. That will never happen again. Quite a large amount of guests left half way through her performance.

3.0 star rating C Carter from Atlanta, Georgia


Based on what I’ve read on the reviews Atlanta got a good concert but almost an hour late to stage not good! That’s about four songs to me! She did sing a lot of the songs I love! so I’m happy about that! Could you please spend some money on monitors so we can see you up close! I think the fans deserve that to see Badu up close! Badu said she’s in charge of this so bring the monitors spend some money on your fans! I hope the tour improves! Well she is a senior citizen now so she is giving all she got! I’m stay a fan at the house not at the arena! Peace and Blessings! If you come to the ATL for a concert read the reviews first then decide!

Nas opening was awesome! Badu was trash. I paid good money for her to start the show after an hour intermission from the opening act. Then she came out and sang a bunch of songs that nobody ever heard before. Then she stopped singing for a while and flopped around the stage. Many people started leaving early and the remaining ones were uninterested in her poor performance. Was very disappointed with this show.

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.

2.0 star rating S. Webb from Chicago, Illinois


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.
