Is there anyone or anything more sparkly than Mariah Carey? No. A divisive opinion, but I am wholeheartedly a Mimi fan, a lamb, and part of the lambily. I am used to the eye rolls; don’t worry, I literally don’t care. She’s the best. Music Box was my first ever CD; I got it when I got my first CD player for my 10th or 11th birthday, and I’ve been hooked ever since. She is even more of a fan of Christmas than I am; she loves the word festive, and has released two Christmas albums. Therefore, when I found out she was bringing her All I Want For Christmas tour to the UK; I exploded with excitement, composed myself, and bought tickets. My lovely friend Lucy said she’d come with me, and I’m so glad she did; however, I’d have totally made the trip to Manchester alone.
So, we made it through the
rain snow, and went to watch Mariah, in all her festive glory, perform a shit load of Christmas tunes, a few of her classic hits (including Hero; I died), and the show concluded with All I Want For Christmas Is You; I cried. It was the third time I’d seen her live, and I think it was my favourite. The (obviously) real Santa made several appearances throughout the night, there was lights, a huge tree, wreaths, ballet dancers, twinkles, glitter, and just. So. Much. FESTIVE. True Christmas sparkle. I loved every second.
I’ve included the videos from my Instagram stories on the night; apologies for the quality, but the lighting and my excitement didn’t help me get the best content. However, it will give you a teeny taste of one of my best sound/sight experiences ever. All the sparkle!
Peace, love, and yooooooooou! Fay x
