Anita Baker Angers Fans By Showing Up Two Hours Late For Performances, Beefs With Production Crew

Fans are saying 'The Songstress' shows up two-plus hours late in various cities while on tour

Earlier this year, songstress Anita Baker kicked fan favorite Babyface off the tour that the two co-headlined. She announced via social media that she was going at it alone “in the interest of personal safety” after she claimed that fans of Babyface were cyberbullying her. Yet, at a recent show, according to The Atlanta Black Star, due to her coming to perform two hours late for her scheduled concert, some fans are now saying that Babyface was never the problem; it was her all along.

At her Nov. 18 show at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex in Greensboro, North Carolina, the audience members showed no “Sweet Love” for the tardy R&B singer. Social media posts also stated that Baker was late and picked fights with her production team while on stage. A user on social media platform X posted videos of the interaction between Baker and the sound crew. There are also comments on the post revealing that many users claimed that she did that not just in North Carolina but also in various states with the same complaints. People who attended the Anita Baker concert in New Jersey in May wanted refunds. She not only started her performance late but, as Babyface was the slated opener, he did not perform at the request of the “Good Love” singer. That left fans enraged.

There were even more users posting to X their stories about Baker showing up late and not being prepared for the shows she performed.

The tour ends in Oakland on Dec. 23.
