CHAKA KHAN AT DENVER BOTANIC
Seen Chaka perform with Rufus at Mississippi Valley State University, circa 1978. Now, was able to see her perform in a venue unlike I have ever experienced for a concert. The show for Chaka was sold out and I was able to obtain one compensated ticket. Via a VIP Meet and Greet pass. I came from Western Kansas to see the show and Meet Chaka. After my research of what to expect attending at the venue, all went well, except the fact that I enjoyed the pre-entry experience, "Such" performer opening act, botanic gardens and Chaka performance, that I missed the call to meet her. I missed the opportunity to get my rewards, having bought a Meet and Greet pass. I am just sharing and will not dwell on the missed opportunity. Chaka Khan is an icon, a woman of a certain age and has many fans. So, the concert was rain or shine. It rained. She was not the high energy performer of yesteryear, but the experience of the concert, by Khan, was memorable. Have a blessed Day.

All I can say is WOW. She was incredible we came for a show and we got one. This is exactly what I wanted to see . Chaka Khan knows how to give a great show she sang all of her hits she was funny and she included the audience. My friends and I have her a At awesome show. I would and have recommended this show to everyone. The seats were great the Warner is a great place for shoes. We ate at Fogo de Chao really good food parking was easy and I would bring my mom but not kids I like to go to adult affairs. Thank you Warner Theater I had a marvelous time seeing Chaka Khan.

CHAKA UP CLOSE
Show got started 20mins late. Strong fast and exciting once on stage. Audience 100% into Chaka she looked great band sounded loud but energy was on point. 20 min outfit change had me concerned and suprised. She normally doesn't change. Band play 2 full songs while Chaka changed. Overall a great show. She had a cold bUT once her voice was warmed up she show cased her vocal range.

A WONDERFUL EVENING
Great seats, great Band overall great production. I'm in my 50s and a long time fan of Chaka. This was the first time my wife and I saw her live. We both felt that she wasn't "all in" on the performance. She seemed al little loopy. Maybe a little groggy from the cold medicine, or perhaps even intoxicated. We went to the Warner because of the intimate setting. I felt like we got more of a rock concert. Seemed like we got more of the band and back-up singers than Ckaka. We still love her to death.
Stu always a fan from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
CHILD OF THE 70'S
when I first heard Chaka Khan and then band Rufus I was hooked on her voice and sound even before I had ever seen her, .The way she was able to do her own background vocals as well as lead vocals just the best. Through the years I would purchase anything she would record and was very glad when she solo then finally I was able to see her live in concert she did not disappoint. That being said here in Philadelphia at the Tower Theatre where she performed 03-11-18 was not her best at all from the beginning she had immediately explained to the audience of having a cold which can alter the voice a lot not able to sustain high and long notes on most of her popular and well known songs was very apparent. Meanwhile she looked fantastic it's that toll on the voice was obvious . Now we know a lot of artist go through this one or more times understandably she's no exception she gave kudos to her very strong singing background singers they really came through for her and her band.. Better times.
Disappointed from Providence, Rhode Island
We were so looking forward to seeing Chaka at Twin River Casino, Lincoln RI!! The show started out great until Chaka disappeared for over 15 minutes and came back out acting and singing sloppy, and requiring assistance from an on sage bodyguard to help her walk and bend to shake hands. We love Chaka, but it appeared something was very "off". On a god note, our seats were great...lol

GREAT BAND - CHAKA NOT SO MUCH
Botanic Gardens is a great venue but has its challenges beginning with a long wait time in a line that spiraled for blocks. Not to mention lack of parking issues. After arriving 2 hrs early, we found seating on a hilly area behind the stage. Chaka started 20 mins late and seemed low energy. She sang significantly off key at times however her back up singers and band compensated. She seemed either ill, on medication, or maybe intoxicated. After a rather short set, she took a 20 minute break at which time we left. Ending on a positive note - the gardens are lovely, great song list, excellent band, enthusiastic audience, beautiful weather. Chaka, sorry to say disappointed, at least on her opening set.
