Many fans are demanding ticket refunds after Whitney Houston's disastrous Tuesday night concert in Birmingham, England. Houston's super-erratic behavior is fueling concerns that she again is struggling with substance abuse, especially after she sang for "barely 20 minutes" and then "disappeared" for a 20-minute break.
"Soon after, the audience was treated to Houston's smash hit "One Moment in Time" — in a pre-recorded video montage. This was all before Miss Houston began to slaughter 'I Will Always Love You': Her attempt at the award-winning ballad is currently drawing ridicule on YouTube. "It was a con, a ripoff. It wasn't a concert," said one angry fan. Added another: "She kept the crowd waiting for ages after every song, and all she did was talk to stop her from having to sing. I was so looking forward to it, but I appeared to have wasted [my money].'"
The critics have been scathing, even more so than last month's Australian tour. Houston's performance was called everything from "horrendous" to "appalling.".
The video is almost heart-breaking to watch, especially when fans boo. After several good performances, Houston has raised concern several times on her world tour. The latest incident seemingly confirms hat Whitney Houston is indeed troubled again. Let's wish her the best.
