25 Mars 2019 – Mariah Carey : Caution World Tour – Radio City Music Hall, New York
Mariah Carey kicked off its new tour "World Tour Deposit" a few days ago and is ready to invest in one of the most beautiful rooms in New York to present the show! I had the opportunity to cross it on the set of a program for MTV last November and my impatience to find her on stage has only grown since ❤ is 19 pm when I arrived at Radio City Music Hall. I head straight to merchandising to buy the magnificent tour program. It is not very thick, but the photos are superb! I then climbs up 2e balcony where I managed to find me a front row seat. I am not disappointed : I have a beautiful overview with nobody in front of me. Whatever happens, I did not have 499 $ to put in a ticket 😂.
In the first part, DJ offers some conventional, including tracks by Michael Jackson that people sing loudly. "Leaving Neverland" has clearly not had the desired effect here and that's good 👍 After some pieces, Bryan Tanaka, choreographer Mariah just explain that the diva celebrates her birthday soon and that the opportunity to wish him in chorus. We repeat 2 or 3 time Happy anniversary Meuriaaah 🎂 and we are off again for long minutes waiting.
AT 21 h 20, the lights go out and we see the letter M in pink neon gradually draw on the screen. The silhouette of Mariah appears in the center to remind the poster of the tour. The curtain falls and the introduction starts on « A No No ». We discover the diva decked out with a pearly gown amid a scene while video. It is much more modern than it has proposed in the past! It is accompanied by 4 dancers. After a quick « Hello New York ! », she goes on « Dreamlover ». The screen casts carnival images and fireworks.
She's voice, it's nice to hear! She laughs a little of the New York accent before joining the piano for a mashup « You Don’t Know What to Do » I never thought I'd hear live and « Emotions ». It's absolutely brilliant 👏 The dancers go wild over a very 90 & rsquo choreography; s as it places us in his nightingale whistles Milanese fashion! I do not know if it is playback, but anyway, illusion is total 😅. Fan ❤.
She explains the next song is from his album "Music Box", it is indeed « Anytime You Need a Friend » she had not sung since twenty years. The singers play the Gospel way and the atmosphere switches to clubing with the 'C + C Club Mix' launched at full power. The dancers are back and regain the choirs 'Morales Club Mix' of « Can’t Take That Away (Mariah’s Theme) » in a setting worthy of The Great Gatsby. Mariah Carey returns wearing a black dress, on which are embroidered light tubes that change color in time to the music.
Holding flashes at top speed on the 'Sweet Club Mix' of « Fantasy » on which she vocalizes more than she sings. visual side, the seizure is not far 😂. The club remix gives way to 'Bad Boy Fantasy Remix', more urban, on which it is not doing much. She then slides between two pieces she is about to publish his autobiography. A book that is likely to be crisp !
She explained that the next song is one of his favorite, and that this is the first she wrote with her boyfriend Jermaine Dupri : it is « Always Be My Baby ». In original version first, then remixed through the 'Mr. Dupri Remix’. On the screen scrolls the images of his kids, Monroe and Moroccan, and everyone expects to see them disembark from one minute to the other. I do not miss, both excited arrive microphone in hand mode HEEELLOOO NEW YORK ! They make boxes, they have so much confidence, this is hilarious 😆.
After they left, it continues with « Caution », giving his last name album. Her makeup and hair stylist to join to a « glam moment » before « GTFO ». The title is a great surprise live. This is not a song that I specifically stop me listening to the album, but now is super smooth and pink and blue projections are superb : I loved!
She announces that she is very excited to share the stage with two special guests, Blood Orange et Slick Rick. They arrive to accompany him on one of his favorite songs, « Giving Me Life », The fans are calling him since the start of the tour. She explains that this is the first time she sings on stage and they have repeated only once in the afternoon! I do not know if it will keep for the future or if it is a one night stand… The future will tell 😛 It offers after that solo to Slick Rick on "La Di Da Di", what, between you and me, not left me a lasting impression!
The concert takes on a flamenco guitar introduction. We quickly recognized « My All » which does not carry me especially this time. Mariah, Now wearing a little evening dress too much, invites us to return to the past with « Vision of Love ». The singer gives himself to 100 % by chaining between power and softness ... the whole room gets up and gives him a standing ovation at the end of the song! This is one of the best moments of the show.
Pictures of the show TRL sure MTV in which I participated last November appear on the screen to celebrate the movement #JusticeForGlitter launched by our national Kenny. the hashtag, for those who do not know, allowed the cursed album "Glitter", to be No. 1 in the top digital, 17 years after its release! Equipped with a rustle, She then began a medley of 4 titles to celebrate the disc with the fans present : « Never Too Far », « Last Night a DJ Saved My Life », who introduced me to Mariah Carey 2001, « Loverboy » and « Didn’t Mean to Turn You On » on which it is accompanied by a dancer rollers. between tubes, surprises and rarities, the setlist is a faultless for now! When she joined the scenes, Trey Lorenz, one of the singers, is responsible for the presentation of the group on the instrument of « Didn’t Mean to Turn You On ».
The display shows the evil twin of Mariah Carey, Bianca, we have seen for the first time in 1999 into the clip « Heartbreaker ». The title starts and the alter ego of the diva appeared in the flesh, at the same time that the singer, who is now wearing a sequined bodysuit topped by an equally sparkling jacket! the outfits, this is clearly not the strong point of the show 😂. Bianca causes Mariah duel and the scene turns into boxing ring for a few seconds! This is hilarious, Projections are beautiful, it really is one of the most successful paintings show 👍.
Encased in his shirt-a-room, she goes on « Touch My Body » you can find the video on my YouTube channel or end section! the end felt approach starts when « We Belong Together ». I have not had many doubts about the live throughout the evening, but the voice is so different on the bridge of the song it can be only the playback. It does not interfere with the public who gets in chorus the words on the remix which is proposed by the group just after.
I can not help but push a cry of horror when I see her back on stage after putting some sort of pink sequined tulle around his body. That gives it the appearance of a princess who abused ice cream unicorn 😅. it interprets « With You » before ending « Hero » that m & rsquo; really impresses. This is the time of the concert my favorite, and yet it is not one of my favorite songs ! C & rsquo; is for me the best interpretation of the three concerts I attended. What will you say to discover ?
« Hero » (Live) @ New York, 25/03/2019
I do not know why this one more than another, but I was really embedded ❤. She thanks the fans, the dancers, musicians and his team, before leaving the stage to the applause of the public 👏.
Which foot frankly! The show is a success, the setlist for the staging, via the voice : this is a faultless. I rather regret the duration of the concert, 1 h 30 in total, which must be removed almost 15 minute interludes and dances. It's so good we would like to have more! She managed to mix his hits, his new songs and rarities, no downtime and with incredible virtuosity. Musically, This is interesting because it will also draw in the remix of his titles, which may surprise, and at the same time what is necessary to renew the songs we've already heard 1000 times 🎧.
The staging is modern, it's great visually effective ! We feel that Vegas has been there. The weak point of the show, whether to cite a, this is probably the costumes, I personally did not like ... but that may appeal to others! This is a luscious woman, and the fact to dress in such outfits a bit too much, it is not always flattering to her figure. side atmosphere, She was talkative, People around me were receptive and remained quietly in their place, which is surprising for the American public!
It will be in France in June 2019, Paris and Bordeaux. I advise you to go, because it is a show that can please the fans and the general public. I would love to see her again! I know she wants to play his Christmas show in New York this year, but if the « Caution Tour », board could also, I will be delighted to return 😁. We left with the photos and videos of the concert, please leave your comments here or on social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and discover the previous concerts Mariah whom I assisted : All I Want For Christmas Is You Tour in 2017 and The Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour in 2016 !
