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 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!

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

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 !!

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❤️❤️.

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.

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.
