Mixed feelings about the Atlanta Concert
Fans were happy and excited and shared their joy on Twitter, great night, great voice!!!!!!!
However, it seems not everyone (including fans) was pleased with the way too long Michael Jackson's tracks played over and over while waiting for Mariah to appear on stage.
Unfortunately, the theater wasn't sold out and some people left Mariah's show early.
Today, an Atlanta radio station is clowning Mariah....

“Believe it or not, none of us have ever seen her live,” explained Drucker at the pre-concert party for fans at Livingston across Peachtree Street from the Fox.
Added Stapleton: “I’ll be honest, I did give up on her a little bit after [the singer’s ill-fated 2001 film “Glitter”] but we’re back now.”
Fears, meanwhile, was hoping the pop diva would perform her 1997 hit “My All.”
“It’s just so desperate,” Fears explained. “That’s probably why we all like it!”
Perhaps the luckiest fan present inside the swanky hotel bar?
Atlanta video producer Raphael Gentry, who literally walked into the reception to meet his friend Christopher “Cocktails” Cornell and immediately scored a pair of tickets to the show courtesy of Livingston and Q100.
Holding his tickets aloft for us, Gentry explained: “I just love the woman. When she hits those high notes, oh man. And to be able to do that and look that sexy? It’s a gift. I used to think [Carey’s comic actor husband] Nick Cannon was cool. I don’t like him no more!”
Concert attendee Philip Rafshoon says he admires the singer’s staying power.
“After ‘Glitter,’ I thought she was over. It’s great to see her come back and do so well.”
Alas, marketing the artist (whose debut album was issued 20 years ago this year) has been a challenge on this tour.
Her latest album, “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” hasn’t impressed radio programmers. And by late Tuesday afternoon, approximately a thousand tickets remained for her Fox show
For fan Felix Castro, Jr., Carey’s 2009 critically acclaimed performance as a 1980s social worker in Oscar buzz worthy film “Precious” keeps her relevant.
“I thought it was a really brave performance,” Castro, Jr. explained while sipping a Manhattan. “She just acted. It wasn’t glamorous. It was just real with no make up. You can’t do a role like that without being a little more weathered and wiser. Mariah has survived. And I wanted to see her before she went all Whitney [Houston] on us.”
