Carey Fans Furious After Concert
Fans attending Mariah Carey's show in Uncasville, Connecticut on Friday night (25AUG06) were furious after paying top dollar to see her perform for less than an hour. The star's show lasted for all of 75 minutes and she was off stage for 15 of those minutes for multiple costume changes. Fans had paid up to $160 (GBP89) to see the concert, at the Mohegan Sun Arena, with the lowest price seats going for $90 (GBP50). After performing WE BELONG TOGETHER, Carey said her goodbyes to the crowd and left the stage to get ready for what fans thought would be an encore, but she never re-appeared. According to one concertgoer, "Mariah barely played for an hour. We are demanding a refund! Everyone in the audience was so mad. She cut songs out of the show and was just not into it at all." Another miffed fan added, "I don't even think she was on for more than 45 minutes. I've never seen anyone suck as bad in concert and just not care." An apparently cranky Carey even snapped at one of the crew members during her set saying, "Get that light off me you dummy" before realising her microphone was on. She quickly tried to cover by adding, "Oops, just kidding!"
