I just came back from an Anita Baker concert in Raleigh at the RBC Center that was VERY disappointing. First, our tickets said the concert started at 6:00. We arrived 30 minutes early and ended up being kept outside until after 7:00 because Miss Baker was doing a sound check. When we finally were allowed into the building, we got seated and waited until 7:45 when a comedian came on to "warm up the crowd". He ended up talking on stage for about 15 minutes in total darkness because no one was there to put a spot light on him. Eventually, he got a spot light and he did his thing until 8:15 when he left saying that Miss Baker would be right out. He ended up having to come back out to stall again. The crowd wasn't happy. He kept saying Miss Baker would be out in a few minutes. When he left the stage, they had an intermission for another 15 minutes and when the crowd started clapping and booing, the comic came back out. He told us again that Miss Baker was coming right out. This time she did come out finally at around 9:00. The crowd was glad to see her - but when her band started playing and she began to sing the sound was way too loud and distorted. Apparently, the sound problem, the problem all along, was still not fixed. We tried to stay to hear her concert - but just couldn't deal with the screaming and the poor sound. It was very disapointing. When we complained to the venue about the sound, they told us Miss Baker uses her own sound people and equipment and that they had nothing to do with it. One more thing about this concert was when Miss Baker did come out on stage she never mentioned WHY everyone was kept waiting for so long. It was very unprofessional and we felt like we were sitting in a bad high school perfomance - except this one cost us $150 for the tickets and another $10 to park.
