Last night Whitney Houston launched the European leg of her World tour with a commanding performance in Birmingham (UK) pleasing both fans and critics alike.
Performing hits such as “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”, “I Look to You”, “I Will Always Love You” and “Million Dollar Bill”, Whitney clearly enjoyed every second of her return to the UK stage as over 11,000 fans cheered her on.
Entertaining the crowd along with Whitney was a fantastic band, energetically choreographed dancers, and a beautiful multifunction stage set designed by world-renowned designer Baz Halpin (who has previously worked with Cher, Tina Turner, Pink, Michael Buble and Cirque de Soleil.)
After a brief illness which caused her to reschedule 4 of her earlier shows, Whitney has showed the world she is back in full force with a strong show to entertain her fans.
Whitney’s tour continues over the next two months in Europe.
