I remember saying the reason she didn't have jumbo screens at her last tour was bc she didn't want people filming close up shots of her to avoid any sort of viral lipping moment, and I was ridiculed here and everyone said it was bc she just wanted to save money. Well this tour with Lionel has jumbo trons but they don't come on until after mariahs set is over. While Mariah is on the screens play music videos. Does anyone wanna still say it's about saving money?
I've been to hundreds of concerts and this is pretty much always the case for the supporting acts. Only the main artist (Lionel in this case) usually gets the full shebang. For whatever reasons, Mariah's staging has always been incredibly cheap, especially in the last 10 years, and for an artist of her caliber. I do think it's a money saving thing.... but she did end up adding screens at the end of the SSF tour right? I don't think Mariah has been to many concerts as an attendee so sometimes I wonder how oblivious she might be to how these decisions come across.
