Things To Do

Things to do | review: in her ‘merry christmas one and all’ tour, this is mariah carey’s wonderful time of year.

Mariah Carey performs during "The Late Late Show with James Corden" in Dec. 2019.

For Mariah Carey, it’s a family affair. The Queen of Christmas made her return to the city Sunday night at the United Center as part of her ongoing “Merry Christmas One and All!” tour. Unlike other artists — who may release an occasional holiday single or a second-rate Christmas album — Carey has leaned into the season, crafting two classic albums (“Merry Christmas” and “Merry Christmas II You”) and a series of promotional movies, soundtracks and musical residencies to celebrate the holiday.

But this latest tour is her most spectacular embodiment of her love of Christmas, one that ties the spirit of the season with her lineage and familial legacy. Before her rendition of “Sleigh Ride,” Carey shared that it is a Christmas tradition for her to go on a two-horse open sleigh ride with her children. Carey’s two children (twins Moroccan and Monroe) made brief but memorable appearances throughout the show, whether they danced on stage, sang a solo track (the infectious ’80s jam “Christmas Wrapping”) or performed a rap.

Carey even turned her song “Jesus Born on This Day” from her first Christmas album into a duet with Monroe. The two held hands and looked at each other while trading lines back and forth during the song. Carey even included a video slideshow of her celebrating the season with her kids throughout the years. It is clear this time of year is not just about her material and cultural success, but about how integral it is to the strength and love within her family.

This made for an overall family-friendly sort of evening, as if you were watching a dazzling televised Christmas special as a member of a live studio audience. Despite the abundance of elder millennial and Gen X fans in attendance, there were gaggles of children throughout the packed United Center, and Carey’s set often catered to their sensibilities.

The show began with two child ballet dancers who emerged from oversized gift boxes and did a brief performance of “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” from “The Nutcracker.” After, Carey, wearing a sparkly red mini dress, rose from underneath the stage and performed “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” with her backing band clad in all white. Adult and child dancers both took the stage again for the next track of the night, “Oh Santa!” And this inclusion of all age groups continued sporadically throughout the night.

What could have come across as a gimmick worked quite well. For Carey, Christmas is not just a time to mark the return of her uber-popular Christmas classic “All I Want for Christmas is You.” It is a holiday and a season for togetherness, for the wonder of one’s childhood, for joy and delight in abundance.

Ignore the rumors of years past, Carey’s voice is still strong and powerful. She hit her signature whistle notes throughout the night, whether it was at the end of “Oh Santa!” or during her mega-hit “We Belong Together.”

I was especially blown away by her voice during the moments when Carey played a medley of her non-Christmas tracks such as “Emotions” and “Fantasy.” Donning a sequined, all-gold dress with an attached cape, Carey swept through some of her biggest hits, including “Always Be My Baby” and “It’s a Wrap” (which recently became a social media sensation after it was rediscovered by Gen Z).

During the quieter, yet still enjoyable and even campy moments of the evening, Carey shined. Carey welcomed her Glam Squad twice to the stage to touch up her hair and makeup in between songs. Her three background singers accompanied this moment with a cheeky song where they repeatedly sang, “It’s the glam squad” to the audience. “I want to look nice for you,” Carey explained, and the audience ate it up.

She often peppered breaks between the tracks to talk to and joke with her audience. What’s often missing from narratives around Mariah Carey is her humor and sass, her cleverness and intelligence. But her fans (known as “lambs”) have always known this, and Carey makes sure to engage with the folks who have seen her full self from the beginning.

However, it was the inclusion of songs like “Make it Happen” and “Fly Like a Bird” (this critic’s personal favorite) that truly made the evening. Carey has never hidden her strong religious faith (she is Episcopalian), but it is often overlooked by casual listeners who only know her biggest songs. Both tracks, which Carey performed back-to-back, incorporate gospel into her signature pop/R&B melodies. Carey saved some of her best vocals for this moment, giving the songs room to breathe and permeate throughout the arena. She was also joined by a gospel choir during these tracks and throughout the night (most poignantly during renditions of “Silent Night” and “Joy to the World”).

Both songs are also overtly religious, and their inclusion makes perfect sense for a Christmas-themed show. While there is sparkle and sweetness and silliness throughout Christmastime, there is also a reason for the season. Carey gets to the root of the season — the heart of the matter — and does so with ease.

How cheery is Mariah Carey Christmas concert? More than you could ever know

The self-proclaimed ‘queen of christmas’ brings angelic pipes and some diva attitude to stadium stuffed with dolled-up revelers.

No one can belt out a Christmas carol quite like Mariah Carey, who shares initials with “Merry Christmas.” So when the self-proclaimed “queen” of the holiday headed to United Center for a seasonal showdown Sunday night, Chicago came ready to celebrate.

The sold-out arena was decked and stuffed with scores of revelers dressed in their best ballgowns, sequined frocks, Santa hats and flashing light necklaces like one big citywide Christmas party. Steven “DJ Suss One” — Carey’s DJ since 2006 — helped hype up the room with a dustbin of holiday songs and club hits before she hit the stage, her voice proceeding her.

As the live band delved into a “overture” of “Sugar Plum Fairy,” accompanied by two pint-sized ballerinas tiptoeing along to the song, Carey’s dolphin high notes came through the speakers as she ascended from underneath the stage through a cut in the center. The entrance was dramatic and theatrical and totally on brand for the pop chanteuse who filled the following hour-and-a-half with Christmas spirit for sure, but a whole lot of her diva spirit, too.

Not only did Carey require a male companion to walk her backstage for five outfit changes, she also had her “glam squad” come out to powder her face and brush her hair twice during the show (“I have to go through the drama to look nice for you,” she told the crowd). When the stage lights went out during the first song, Carey zeroed in on the moment with snarky commentary that made you wonder if someone was getting fired that night. But none of it could compare to Carey wearing an ostentatious golden halo crown, coming off looking like the Virgin Mary while singing “Silent Night.”

Joined by a talented four-piece band led by her musical director Daniel Moore and three backup singers, Carey opened the family-friendly Christmas concert with “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing / Gloria (In Excelsis Deo),” fitting for her perfect-pitch voice, which sounded nothing short of angelic. At 54, Carey’s gifted voice is still pristine, and she showed it off, peppering her unbelievable high notes into nearly every song, even when it wasn’t necessary to have the filler.

The night’s set list was the perfect retail-store soundtrack of ubiquitous holiday hits, including covers of classics like Darlene Love’s “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).” There was also a faithful take on “Joy to the World” in which Carey was joined by a robed choir whose tender voices were the epitome of peace. The singer also ran through more of her originals from her R&B pop Christmas albums including 1994’s “Merry Christmas” and 2010’s “Merry Christmas II You.”

  • Mariah Carey sued again over ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’

The tour — dubbed “Merry Christmas One And All!” — is an expanded continuation of Carey’s similar short holiday run in 2022, later adapted into a highly rated TV special that ran on CBS. Much like that production, the concert was filled with music as well as skilled choreography from a dancing squad that included some very young talents and a rotating mix of holiday motifs from snowglobe backdrops for the secular songs to a star of Bethlehem for the more reverent numbers.

There was also a good portion of the set devoted to her non-Christmas classics, including a rushed medley of hits including “Always Be My Baby,” “Dreamlover” and “Emotions” as well as full takes on “We Belong Together” and “Hero” that were reminders of what brought Carey to the top of the pop pile in the ’90s.

  • Chicago’s annual Christmas tree ship inspires ‘warm’ feelings on a cool day

While some of the segues between the show’s acts were a bit sloppy and poorly timed, especially the pauses waiting for Carey’s numerous outfit changes, the interludes gave way to showcasing some other talents including her own children. Son Moroccan “Roc” Cannon offered a rap breakdown during the outro of “Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)” while daughter Monroe Cannon helped lead a cover of The Waitress’ “Christmas Wrapping” and, later, joined her mother for a duet of Carey’s original “Jesus Born on This Day.”

Home videos featuring Carey and the twins celebrating the holidays through the years also played on screens before the ultimate show moment, a blitzed-out finale of her estimated $3-million-a-year-making “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” complete with a downpour of fake “snow” confetti. No matter how forced the song is upon us for 30-plus days every year, there’s no denying its massive pop appeal, and hearing it live deserves a spot on that Christmas wish list.
