Whitney Houston concert disappoints audience

Fans walked out on singer Whitney Houston and her tour manager hid from critics after a Melbourne concert that at best revealed ‘added flaws that give her character’, and at worst was ‘as terrible as everyone said it was’. Houston, who has sold 170 million records, was flayed for concerts in Brisbane and Sydney in which she forgot lyrics, had coughing fits and mistook the names of her band. The same barbs were levelled against the 46-year-old after the first of two Melbourne gigs.
