All we want for Christmas is for Mariah Carey to get a proper soundcheck at the Fox Theatre

Staff Pick

Christmas came early this year because “Heartbreaker” and best-selling female recording artist of all time Mariah Carey is headed our way. The Glitter star who practically invented whistle notes also unknowingly graced the world with the most pivotal moments in divadom on an infamous episode of MTV Cribs — during which she took a bath, worked a Stairmaster in stilettos, and refused to show the general public her bedroom because that’s “where the magic happens.” Despite recent, uh, technical difficulties (someone please check our girl’s in-ear monitors for fuck’s sake!) she's riding the wave of her latest record, Caution.

Mariah Carey will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 8 at the Fox Theatre; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-3200;; Tickets are $49.50.
