Per Page Six, Mimi will embark on a ‘Butterfly World Tour’ next year.
Interestingly, the trek will be chronicled by VH1 for a new docuseries.
Said show will lean less theatrical than E!’s much-panned ‘Mariah’s World’ – which according to same report, won’t be coming back.
A source said:
“‘Mariah’s World’ was always planned to be an eight-part TV event. But now she is planning a huge world tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of ‘Butterfly’ to start early 2018. It will be similar to U2’s ‘Joshua Tree’ tour. VH1 is set to film a docuseries that will capture the behind-the-scenes of her tour.”
The tour is a fascinating concept if it’s what we think it is (see: performing the entire album top-to-bottom).
‘Butterfly’ was a real moment in Mariah’s career and was transformative in more ways than one.
Our only concern is for this “new” album she claims is coming soon. Plotting a tour for a 20 year old LP doesn’t sound like the kind of move to make when gearing up to promote new material.
outchea out here working and we’re not mad at that.
