Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.

I can't find a video anywhere (hopefully someone knows where one is) but I saw it on the news in my country today. So sad, she has completely lost her voice...

At least she's off the drugs but the damage has still been done.

In this case, it would've been better if she did.

Re: Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.


I thought it's relatively nice. Definitely not her best since comeback but nowhere near disaster.
Perhaps she was feeling rather unwell that night, so a couple of bad performances on certain songs was not really that surprising. Plus, some people have been expecting too much from her since comeback. She was improving gradually but still you could hear her straining on certain high chest notes, unless she was on her good day. And she just would not sing longer notes nowadays for sure. She barely could hold a note for more than 7 seconds now.

Re: Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.

I'm not talking about that song. On the news it showed a couple of clips where she had to stop during songs, missing words so she could take a big gasp of breath.

Re: Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.

My news said she had to take a break after singing two songs. . .
And when she tried to go to the high notes. . .

Re: Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.

How long of a break between songs?
I only know a 'short' 30 seconds or so break during a song like I Will Always Love You is somehow her famous antique.

Re: Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.

Whitney Houston struggled through the opening night of her Australian tour, it has been reported.

The 46-year-old singer, who last toured the country in 1988, sparked health concerns after appearing breathless and exhausted on stage at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre last night.

Houston reportedly sang two songs before taking a break and then carried a towel with her for the next few numbers. She later allegedly coughed and left the stage, when her brother Gary came on to sing.

One concert-goer wrote on the Courier-Mail website: "She was not fit to perform. She seemed to be on another planet, and the concert was laughable. When the back up singer's performance is the stand out for the night you know something is wrong."

Another said: "To charge people for that is just wrong. Her voice was gone, she spoke more than she sang. My husband left half way through, he just couldn't watch any more."

Houston, who serenaded daughter Bobbi at one point, also apparently failed to remember the names of her backing band.

The musician's spokesperson recently described rumours that she is in a fragile condition as "rubbish" and "ridiculous".

Re: Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.

I love Whitney but is anyone really that surprised ?

She was not good on X-factor last year. If I were her, I'd be lip synching - as a fan, I wouldn't care !

Re: Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.

She was not that bad! I wish we weren't living in a world full of drones who believe what the tabloids tell them before they've seen it for themselves Talk about exaggeration!

Whitney was not on top form. But also her cousin died yesterday which the disgusting media did not report Which surely would have affected her performance. And yes she should be lipping at least a few songs, why not, everyone else does.

Re: Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.

The Aussie's have slated every major artist thats been there though. And they complain that so many miss Australia off their tours. Guessing Whitney may have killed off her Brisbane fanbase

Re: Whitney Houston's recent Brisbane concert disaster.

Whitney should drop I Will Always Love You completely from her setlist.

That song shouldnt be touched at all, not by her nor by anyone.

Anyway she better pull herself together in April when I see her in O2 Arena in London.

And NO! I dont want her to lip.
