Mariah Carey on Tour 2018
My friend has never been to a concert and it was on her bucket list to go to one this year. I was searching for a cool artist that would be great for a first concert and I came across Mariah Carey on Tour. I thought it would have been sold out but I rang the O2 London arena and we were lucky and got 2 tickets.
Disabled access at the O2
This is the second time I have had disabled access tickets for the O2 and this time round we had one step to do which was OK. The O2 is easier to access going in as there is a dedicated VIP / Disabled ticket line which is not long.
However coming out is more of a challenge as obviously everyone else is trying to get out at the same time. If you are in no rush then I would recommend waiting around for the rush to go.
We had excellent seats with great view of the stage. Bags are searched on the way in and all food and drink is taken off you. There are a number of stalls inside selling refreshments from Champagne to sweets, burgers to muffins.
Mariah Carey Christmas Tour
Mariah Carey was amazing. She sang mainly Christmas songs with a few of her other hits thrown in such as Hero. Mariah is a great artist to see live as she really got the crowd going. Everyone there seemed to love her. At a couple of points I thought she was a little out of tune but she was still amazing and I absolutely loved her.
There was no supporting act which I thought was a little strange. This is the first concert that I have been to with no supporting act but people didn’t seem that bothered as at the end of the day they were there to see Mariah. There was a DJ doing a set to start with, but the music wasn’t very loud and it was more like background music whilst people were taking their seats.
Mariah’s twins joined her on stage and it seemed like it was one big family on tour with her introducing her band and backing singers. The costumes she was wearing were beautiful, really glamourous and she was stunning.
She did trick us at the end and said goodbye without singing her famous All I want for Christmas but the crowd cheered, the lights didn’t go up so after a costume change she came back on stage to a standing screaming audience who was all dancing and singing along.
The concert was amazing and really got me in the festive mood. I would definitely go and see Mariah Carey in concert again and hopefully will get tickets for her upcoming 2019 tour.
