Can they really sell 6 Christmas shows in Las Vegas? I think it makes sense in New York because a lot of tourists go during the holidays, but I just don't see Vegas being that festive for Christmas. It almost would make more sense to tour or do mini residencies in key places. 


I don't think it matters just because Vegas is so much about shows in general, plus Mariah is so connected to Christmas because of AIWFCIY.

There's actually a ton of tourists there during Christmas time. I've been to a Christmas concert there before.

The times I've gone around Christmas time, the Strip is a lot less crowded, but there are a ton more foreign tourists, which I guess would be ideal to sell Mariah. I guess this makes the Christmas shows more accessible to West Coast lambs too.

I was checking axs.com and looks like the leg is selling nicely so far. The dates shown are still the old ones though, I hope that doesn't mean there are glitches on the website.

They should put this on dvd and package it with a live cd.

Have they filmed any of the shows? They really should have captured the last leg. I don't see this leg being the best.

Yeah I don't see this one being the best either. Just going by her last couple of performances. She's not in the best shape for it either so she will be stiff and uncomfortable on stage. Best thing to have filmed for a DVD would have been the SSFT or the last leg or two.

I believe they have professional footage of the first 2 legs and the summer 2016 ones.

Repackage #1 To Infinity with a DVD of Vegas in a two pack. New money for old rope and they can drive their way into supermarkets for the Christmas period.

^Yep - great idea. Since we won't be getting any new material before xmas she may as well capitalise on the holiday season. She's out doing the rounds at xmas anyway and is always booked so it would be very easy to promote.

It would sell like hot cakes here. Considering the last dvd came more than a decade ago, this is kind of a necessity

We'll be seeing her next Friday. I hope she doesn't cancel on us again. I'm a bit concerned that she hasn't been in Vegas rehearsing, but hopefully her time off does something with her voice.

Honestly, Spring was a crap time to release a GH back in 2015 and it was just ludicrous timing. By the time the boom period for it rolled around, supermarkets had withdrawn it from their Christmas CD stock which is a crucial element now specialist music outlets are all but dead and you're left with shifting music through Walmart, Tesco, etc who will only stock music in limited windows which are led by mainstream marketing campaigns.

#1 To Infinity could easily have been a "go to" lazy music gift for mainstream music consumers if it had been on shelves over Christmas.

From the clips i have seen, she looks ok, but out of shape and wearing unflattering outfits. Saw a clip of the first verse if fantasy and she sang it live. Also saw some other clips where she sounds ok, but not amazing. Hope to see more as the night and week goes.

Went to the show tonight... being there 3rd row, she sounded really good.... especially for the first show! She went for some notes and was able to execute them well. I'm not suprised she wore the same outfits from the last leg, crazy how they made the new size lol. Her face looked flawless and after a bit you got used to the outfits and the crowd ate her up. Energy was on point and she finished the show with It's Like That. 3rd time watching it and I still enjoyed it and had a blast. The sound was great AtleAst from where I was sitting and the lipped parts blended well with the live!
