Sydney concert: Photos & Review
CommentPosted by Susan on 18-04-2014

Sydney Mornign Herald: An artist of Erykah Badu’s calibre typically needs no introduction. Tonight however, she treats herself, slinking onto stage 10 minutes after her house band has warmed the room to optimal cooking temperature. This sort of late entry speaks volumes of Badu as a performer: she’s comfortable taking her time because this comes naturally to her. Across a two-hour blockbuster set, she never shows even the slightest hint of strain, which is all the more impressive when you consider the kind of melodies gushing from her compact frame.

Badu hasn’t released a record in four years, which seems to suit her just fine. She guides her band, with as many backing singers as players, through a spiralling cross-section of her back catalogue that includes straight-ahead groovers from her debut and some of the more experimental material that came after it. No song receives regular treatment, with Badu tearing up her own rule book and mapping out new sonic territory as she sees fit. Instruments fall away, harmonies change and beats appear repackaged five minutes down the line. Tunes can go for up to a quarter of an hour, easy. It’s dizzying, but never boring. Read more.

Melbourne Concert: SMH review
CommentPosted by Susan on 18-04-2014

Sydney Morning Herald: Hey Pharrell, call that a hat? Erykah Badu's wide-brimmed throw down capped an imposing entry for the neo-soul queen of Texas. From that giddy dome to a sculpture of head scarves and knitted poncho around her hips, she wore far more layers than the half-naked Prince of Happy and looked no sadder for it.

Not that this lady is in competition with anyone. And with a regal air cut by an easy smile and slightly mad twinkle, she conducted her own eccentric soul-funk universe with a single finger. The elegantly raised digit called every other tune on her syntho-pad gizmo and commanded her hair-trigger band of seven to stop/start on a proverbial dime. Read more.
 
If any of Badu fans, who attended concert in Melbourne on April 15, have photos from that event, please share :). We would be more than grateful!

The 43-year-old’s one night only performance treated a packed audience of around 600 fans to her DJ skills accompanied by her neo-soul signature voice.
