Our mailbox just received this fan review of Rihanna‘s ‘Last Girl On Earth Tour’ stop in Antwerp, Belgium on Friday (thanks Frederic). Don’t shoot the messenger…
Okay, so Tinchy Stryder was NOT the supporting act (some random DJ was). It’s sad how someone loves to make this kinda stuff up.
I’m going to tell you already, I was properly disappointed:
Her vocals weren’t as bad as I expected them to be, but she clearly omitted the difficult parts and even forgot some of the lyrics. I could even notice a backing track during some of the songs (Don’t Stop The Music for example).
Also, they ruined some songs by using rockier versions of it (Rude Boy and S.O.S. especially).
SHOW AND SPECIAL EFFECTS
I couldn’t almost believe it, but the choreography (if any) was really poor. There were only a couple of dancers, which didn’t impress me. Rihanna barely danced herself as well…
They used a car for the Shut Up & Drive/Fire Bomb performances and some huge monsters for Disturbia but honestly, it’s not that creative and it’s been used a million times already. I did like her dancing in the cage during Don’t Stop The Music though.
I don’t know whether this is really her style, but the outfits look like she’s just picked them from Lady Gaga’s wardrobe. My friend, a HUGE Rihanna fan even said so.
Same old story, “Hi Antwerp, are you having fun? I’m having a blast” etc etc. Funny thing is, it seemed to me she didn’t like being on stage at all. She came across rather moody and barely smiled.
I hate giving negative reviews but I couldn’t help but feel disappointed. Now that I’ve seen her live, I’m starting to doubt her talent as an artist.
