Mariah came out over an hour late- wasting my time. Opener was a DJ playing bits of old music- constantly asking us to "give it up". ugh. Mariah is practically immobile- venturing steps one at a time, like an elderly person- which she is not. Too much of backup dancers filling time- which i didn't come to see. Music sounds like karaoke- if I closed my eyes, I was very disappointed. Songs were just snippets- took too long to recognize every song because of the deviations. She sings what she can, avoids the rest. Voice is obviously manipulated when needed-. Best to listen to it all at home. And no, I didn't enjoy seeing her children, seemed like a sad play to give her fans a little extra and it doesn't make up for her lack of performance. The CAUTION album is really, very good. Benedum Theater is BEAUTIFUL and the staff is friendly and professional.

NOT WORTH THE WAIT
Waited almost an hour and a half. No show just a few songs, she sings great but the show was so disappointing. Even on the screens, they were flat.

WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!
I was most disappointed on a number of levels. First the acoustics were horrible and the sound resembled the lack of quality expected in a stadium. Second, Mariah did not sing in her famous five octave range, she was flat and unenergetic. She is not a very dynamic entertainer and the songs sounded like music on the radio that you ignore. No dynamism at all! At not even 50 years of age she feels like a has been. In a formal theatre why were we kept waiting for an hour? And finally the gratuitous appearrance of her kids. Really lousy overall! And the audience stood during the entire concert screaming and holding their phones. Again I felt as if I was in a stadium.
