Erykah Badu Live – A Review

After being introduced, Erykah didn’t hit the stage until almost 20 minutes after her band played one of the longest intros in history to a song that I’m not sure I have ever heard before. I am a fan, but the Erykah Badu section of my music collection is lacking. Among the songs I did recognize were On and On, Next Lifetime, and Bag Lady. However, she did not perform her latest hit, Window Seat :(

The acoustics at Chene Park of Detroit are horrible. Most of the time I was not sure of exactly what Erykah was saying or singing, but she did manage to sound great!  She plays with the audience and even gave her hat to a fan that she seemed to recognize. In return she was given a hat by another fan which she wore until the end of the show but she did manage to return the hat to the fan.

There are no special effects, dancers, or an elaborate stage show during an Erykah Badu concert; it’s simply Erykah, the band, and the audience making funky music together.

Erykah received several roses from fans. Watch as she returns the favor!
