Mariah Carey Offers Innovative Show

Bill Dean of The Ledger reviewed ’s concert Wednesday night (September 3) at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center. Dean writes, “With an imaginative set design and a backing group of five musicians, 10 dancers and four backup singers, Carey not only showcased a wondrous five octave vocal range but also dabbled with invention and innovation.” Dean added, “In contrast to any suggestion of haughty diva-ness, the 33-year old Carey was giving and appreciative of her singers, allowing them to shine on a song of their own and in ‘I’ll Be There,’ her Jackson 5 cover that featured singer Trey Lorenz. The crowd of 2,261 (with a capacity of about 2,500) responded accordingly, giving the singer an enthusiastic reaction that was earned and deserved.”

    How far Mariah has fallen. .she can only get a little over 2,000 people to see her crapfest. The average arena holds around 30,000 people, this is what any major act would do. Even Cyndi Lauper and other has-beens of the 80’s are packing more people to her shows.

    The crowd of 2,261 (with a capacity of about 2,500) …. the tour is for a more intimate feeling….get a brain you tard.

    Stop the ignorant comments fools!!!! Mariah performed 3 shows in Florida alone, it isn’t like she is performing in one city, this is Mariah’s biggest tour of her career in terms of venues, if Mariah was performing in arenas there would be drastically less dates on her tour, so people need to chill out, Mariah is still the diva she always was. I do have a question for the haters though, Nelly, one of the BIGGEST acts in music today is currently on a theatre tour as well. Why aren’t people making a big deal about that, I don’t understand? He could sell out arenas, but he’s choosing to do theatres only, do some research haters before you come on here looking dumb.

    I want to see her perform live.. but she never comes here.

    The reason the tour is playing in such small intimate settings is because she can’t pack anything bigger than that you dumbsh**. Of course Mariah would want to play arenas but they would be empty if she did. Mariah was forced to downscale.

    mikemc…VERY well said! Let the haters continue to hate on Mariah. It will only inspire her more to keep writing great songs and making great albums. And it will give us fans something to laugh about!

    Gee you fool, until you do the research don’t speech on things. First off, this summer is the lowest concert sales in YEARS, even the biggest acts of the year, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera, aren’t having sold out shows. And Lollapalooza is in its worst year of all time. And if Mariah is touring in theatres, who gives a rats a$$, Nelly is even touring in theatres this summer, it doesn’t mean sh**. She not just touring in one city for each state, she’s doing three or four in the biggest states. In California, she had sold out shows, in Florida, she had three huge shows in Orlando, Tampa, and Fort Lauderdale. If your going to speech on things, at least do the research.

    CHER for one is doing Fantastic this summer on her extended Tour and is selling out almost every show. CHER is almost 60 and kicking Mariah’s as$ in terms of ticket sales. This is quit pathetic that Mariah can only sell tickets for tiny intimate shows while CHER is packing the hell out of 30,000-seat arena.

  10. mikemc says:

    YES, she is, considering this it the LAST tour she’s ever going to do!!!!! Of course, every Cher fan in the world is heading out to see her while they can. You can’t compare a farewell tour like Cher’s to Mariah’s. Not only is it her Farewell tour, but her tour has been so widely publicized and promoted, sh** she even had it televised for promotion. Stop the hate on the Platinum Diva!

    Mariah has fallen so far and it is too funny to watch. Hey Mariah lambs, when is Mariah playing at the local VFW or Moose lodge? Those 2 thousand people were probably not even fans but probably just a part of Mariah’s crew. Isn’t she required to have a bunch of doctors around her at all times to keep her from going crazy again?
