It comes off as lazy and unrehearsed. If you're paying for a ticket to an 'intimate' performance -you don't want to see the performer reading off a fucking ipad. It's not exactly characteristic of an authentic, hearfelt experience.

I mean, so what if he forgets a few lyrics? It's supposed to be a spontaneous performance. If you forget a few lyrics, free style, change them, sing what you feel. Let the song evolve.
These bloated rock star antics are part of the reason why people always shit on the guy.
