Mixed reaction to Whitney Houston's comeback gig

Wednesday April 14, 2010

Whitney Houston's first UK concert in 11 years has prompted a varied reaction from fans and critics.

While some attendees praised the comeback queen, saying she was "brilliant", others dubbed the Birmingham show "awful."

The gig was said to disappoint the audience with a 15-minute costume change, and a microphone switch half way through.

Whitney - who postponed several concerts after being taken ill last week - told fans: "I'm feeling pretty good," as she stepped on stage.

One fan said: "There was a lot of talking and not enough singing. When you used to go to see Whitney Houston you expected a big show."
