10 Michigan Christmas Concerts to Get You in the Holiday Mood
The weather's gotten colder, Christmas trees are up, and lights are twinkling.
Local stores are bustling with holiday shoppers, and the season of Christmas parties and holiday potlucks is upon us.
If you still need some help getting into the holiday spirit, Michigan's got a slew of Christmas concerts planned throughout the state as we head into December.
Here's a look at a few of our favorites in 2023.
Mariah Carey - December 1
Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" has helped ring in the holiday season for decades now, but the diva's got more holiday cheer to spread around. Her "Merry Christmas One and All" tour makes a stop at Detroit's Little Caesars Arena on December 1.
Lindsey Stirling - December 5
Violinist, songwriter and dancer Lindsey Stirling brings her "Snow Waltz Tour" to Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids on December 5. She rose to fame after reaching the quarterfinals on "America's Got Talent" back in 2010 and hasn't looked back.
