I attended Rihanna’s Perth concert at Burswood and had high hopes of enjoying a great show. The outcome? It sucks. The featuring acts such as Far East Movement and Calvin Harris were SO much better and did what they were there to do – to perform. I would have them perform all night instead.
I couldn’t care less of what she wears on stage.
I don’t care what kind of toys, cars, guitars, dancers, fireworks she’s gonna use/play on stage.
I came to see her sing. And that, wasn’t what I experienced. She would stop singing like she was running out of breath or the mike wasn’t working or if she has forgotten her lyrics (It sure looks like it’s a combination of all 3). I wonder if they’ve rehearsed before going live. Even her backup singers seems to sing more then she did, seriously.
The music was really too loud as well and there are times where you can’t even hear what she’s singing or if she’s singing at all. Are those sound engineers a joke or what? As for the live band, I’m sure they are talented, but this ain’t a rock/band concert, and if the aim was to “cover up” Rihanna’s voice, I say those guys did a really good job.
Don’t take my word for it. Go read other reviews of her Perth performance and most will tell you the same. Were you there too? Please leave a comment below.

I totally agree, but also add that during the first set she looked altered… like she was on drugs.
I was so dissapointed, she’s an international act that obviously doesn’t have much live talent. I love her music, but she needs to stay in the studio.
