Whitney Houston Promoter Fights Back Over Brisbane

Whitney Houston may not have performed well during a show in Brisbane, Australia this week, but, according to a promoter, it is not acceptable for the public and media to ridicule the superstar. “As for some of the negative ‘vocal minority’ … all I can say is, what happened to the Australian positive support of someone who has seen difficult times, and is now up on stage, warts and all, presenting herself like an open book for the world to see,” says Houston’s promoter Andrew MacManus. “And they want to ridicule Whitney?” As previously reported, sources attending the “I Look To You” singer’s opener in Brisbane earlier this week have called the concert everything from “silly” to a “disaster”. Video of Houston performing and stopping midway through “I Will Always Love You” to apply make up (according to concertgoers) on stage also surfaced on YouTube. Australia is just one stop on Houston’s ongoing “Nothing But Love Tour,” she is booked well into April with dates in Glasgow, Manchester and other destinations overseas. No plans have been announced for Houston to tour North America.
