Gigantic, really.

“I have seen Bowie atop a giant glass spider and U2 stuck inside a lemon, but I cannot recall an entrance like Erykah Badu’s. Her trademark headwrap has been exaggerated to preposterous proportions. Her bronze-encrusted bag may have once been owned by Boudicca, and her lower body is swathed in what appears to be a sheep. A cross between Eartha Kitt, Ziggy Stardust and Tutankhamen, it’s hard to believe that she is a single mother, country girl, and former teacher once called Erica Wright.”

This is how Dave Simpson begins his review of Erykah Badu’s recent concert in Manchester.
