Mariah Carey - Mariah Carey Returns For Intimate Gotham Hall Gig
Mariah Carey returned to the stage on Thursday evening (March 1, 2012) for an intimate concert at New York's Gotham Hall. Performing for only a couple of hundred fans, it was Mariah's first time on the stage since she took time out in 2011 after falling pregnant with twins.
Wearing a sleeveless black dress, Carey was on fine diva-form once again, and changed her shoes after singing just two songs. She also touched up her hair and makeup numerous times - telling the audience, "I didn't realize this was a big deal", reports the Associated Press. The Grammy Award winner sang some of the biggest hits, as well as a selection of covers including the Jackson 5's 'I'll Be There'. The concert formed one of four shows on Thursday evening dubbed 'Plot Your Escape: Four Concerts. Countless Celebrities. 1 Epic Night'. Ticketholders certainly got value for money in New York, with P Diddy opening up the show before Mariah took to the stage. Meanwhile, over in Los Angeles, Lil Wayne opened for Cee Lo Green, while Maroon 5 played with Sara Bareilles in Chicago. In New Orleans, fans got to see both Mary J. Blige and Gavin Degraw on the same stage.
