Asia Loves Whitney

Whitney Houston kicked off her Nothing But Love tour Feb. 6 at Olympic Park in Seoul – her first-ever concert appearance in Korea – and 11,000 fans were there.

The concert got off to a shaky start, with Houston admitting as much from the stage, the Korea Times reported.

“We’re working out a lot of details,” she told the audience before making a joke about how difficult it is for her to lip-sync. “I tried to do it, but I can’t.” Maybe she thought she was in China.

However, technical problems continued.

Twice, Houston stopped the song she was singing and asked the musicians to start over.

The Times reported that she looked exhausted at the end of the first half of the show when she left to make a costume change. She was a bit more confident in the second half of the two-hour concert.
