The seats were fantastic - we all sat 5th row center stage. The opening act, who was a comedian from Philadelphia, was good.
He was okay at the beginning, but became fantastic by the middle/end of his 30-minute show. The concert did not start until 30 minutes later. During this time, people began chanting Mariahís name and clapping. Then the lights dimmed and the Looking In intro began with sound clips of Mariahís hits throughout her 13-year career. During this intro, the screen flew above the city that Moulin Rouge was centered upon. Moulin Rouge was the theme of the concert. Alas, the Heartbreaker Remix (which preluded into Heartbreaker) began. Mariah came out from behind and walked through the crowd. Throughout the entire concert, the crowd was ecstatic and very supportive. Her first ensemble was absolutely stunning. It was a two-piece set that sparkled. To make this short, the concert was absolutely fantastic. The set list was the same as Las Vegas Ė consisting of nearly twenty songs. Her voice was phenomenal, which I am saying objectively. Her voice was absolutely amazing and was on the level of the 1996/1997 era. Her high notes (Vision Of Love, Band Intro, Dreamlover) were championed the notes in Someday, Thereís Got To Be A Way, and others from her early studio albums. She used her mid voice throughout the entire show, except a couple seconds during Subtle Invitation. There wasnít a moment during the show that had a low. I cried during Hero and Through The Rain. People (including myself) were having church during My Saving Grace. One more note, Mariahís backup singers were absolutely fantastic. They were beyond anything that I had expected.
So talented and funny!!! This was my third Mariah Carey concert, and definitely the best.
Thanks to David Lane/Union Leader for the concert picture and to NhWxMaN at FOMM for the setlist and report.
