Atlantic City (1) Fan Reviews
Well Thursday August 17 I traveled to Atlantic City to see Mariah. This was my first time ever seeing her so I was really excited. It was also the first time I've ever gone out of town to see someone live. I have been a casual fan of Mariah's since the Rainbow album, but I became a hardcore fan last year.
So basically, the concert was amazing. We got to the Taj Mahal and got in line to get it. It was in a casino so the line was extended throughout the whole building. They were being extremely strict about cameras and they patted you down to see if you had any. I had two cameras on me (a digital and throwaway) but luckily they didn't feel them.
They finally opened the doors and we went in. We found our seats and went to the merchandise table. I didn't have the best seats, but the place was really small so I had a perfect view of her. She had your basic merchandise. I was just going to get a tourbook, a glowstick, and two 8x10 pictures, but I saw a shirt that was awesome. I would never buy a regular shirt with her picture on it, but this one went with the "Adventures Of Mimi" theme and looked like a comic book, so I had to get it.
The show started and she opened with It's Like That. Everyone was going crazy. She was an amazing performer and everyone was on their feet the whole time. I was very happy with the setlist because she did all of my favorite songs by her including Heartbreaker, Fantasy, Shake It Off, and Make It Happen. The highlights of the show for me were the ballads. My three favorite performances were Vision Of Love, Fly Like A Bird, and I'll Be There. She sounded amazing the entire night and looked great as well. I was a bit skeptical about how she would sound, but I was amazed by her voice. She really is the best vocalist of our time.
The show was about an hour and a half long. It was definitely the best concert I've ever been to, and I'm not just saying that because it's Mariah. She puts on an amazing show and she talks to the fans throughout the whole thing.
