Mariah Carey Announces ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show’ Tour / Teases New Material

Published: Monday 18th Aug 2014 by Sam

Is Mariah Carey a diva redeemed?

Released in May, the singer’s new album ‘Me. I Am…Mariah. The Elusive’ came and went like a thief in the night – only forgetting to bag any sales in the process.

However, it appears ol’ Mimi has a trick up her sequinned sleeve.

Details below…

As previously reported, news of live dates in Asia surfaced recently. Yet, today saw the songbird formally announce a new tour christened ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show’.

Set to play to major venues in the Asian region (including select stadiums), the trek (which is seeing many dates almost sold out already) kicks off in Tokyo, Japan on October 4th. CLICK HERE for full dates.

Interestingly, the diva is continuing to tease new material and is quoted in the tour’s press release as saying:

“I want to experience the spontaneity and emotion that I put into this album on stage with my fans. I can’t stop writing songs so don’t be surprised if you hear a brand new song that I just wrote the night before the show in your city!”

No word yet on whether the jaunt will be journeying elsewhere – although we wouldn’t hold our breath. Because, while it’s smart to play large venues for an audience that still go hysterical for you, the tour would likely have to drastically downsize if it were to play to a US audience – for example – who’ve not been buying her music in recent years.

That said, on the merit of her name alone, Carey could easily command large, arena-sized audiences in Europe – especially as she’s not performed full-length concerts there in almost a decade.

Either way, it’s good to see her turning her toilet water sales into a fine touring wine. More power to her.

    People are always buying her music.
    They buy her back catalogue. She
    Hasn’t done anything at all for her
    new album.. She needs a video
    Promo & a hit single.. She
    needs to revamp this era
    in the US. She’s doing arenas
    and stadiums that’s sheer
    She’s a brilliant woman. Remain
    bitter Sam, ole hating a** !!!!

    #BeyInspired 😉

      • Slay_Hive August 18, 2014

        Hun isn’t your fave #MadonnaInspired kii BYE

      • GaGa’s Tampon August 18, 2014

        One of my favs is your fav so why the hostility?

      • Slay_Hive August 18, 2014

        Oh no sweety there’s no hostility. I was obviously returning the shade! 😀

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) August 18, 2014

        R8 is just around the corner sweetheart. LEGENDRIAH should be the least of your worries. 🙂

      • Slay_Hive August 18, 2014

        Mariah And Rihanna are the least of my worries..Ig uess Since Mariah Flopped youll be bandwagoning with the navy??? kii

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) August 18, 2014

        I’ve always supported Queen Fenty but I see you’re back to your trolling ways. Girl gone. *waves goodbye*

      • Slay_Hive August 18, 2014

        And I see you’re back to hopping on my d***. I dont troll I just simply state my opinion. 😉 ‘

    • Stephy. August 18, 2014

      OOOOKAY! No shade, but Mimi needs to BEY-Inspired by Queen Bey & learn a few things about putting on a SHOW! Chile… I still love my Mimi tho.

  4. Stephy. August 18, 2014

    Goooooo Mariah! Ugh, I hope her ass sings LIVE! Also, Sam stays shading Mariah & Rihanna 24/7… “Toilet Water Sales” REALLY SAM!?!?

    The album is a flop but it still has shifted the same amount as other “flops” this year like J HO, Shakira & others. But, when you post about them its all praise & no shade whatsoever…


    • GaGa’s Tampon August 18, 2014

      Do you think she can redeem herself with this tour? Was watching some clips from her advocates whatever the name is tour some of her performances were messy

      • Stephy. August 18, 2014

        Girl, I do NOT know. Honestly, it might be a disaster like Whitney Houston’s last tour before she eventually died. Chile, Mariah needs to learn how to put on a smoke N mirrors (Madonna) type show. To distract from her LACK of talent cause chile… I hope this is not gonna be her “Whitney Houston 2010 Type Tour”

      • GaGa’s Tampon August 18, 2014

        Or be better if she did most if her old songs
        Though I don’t think I’ll forgive her for ruining this song

  5. LB (Shanene > Wanda) August 18, 2014

    YAAASSSSSS Mimi, I hope she tours my city so I can get some tickets and see her live.

    This is awesome, Chanteuse is such an amazing album that Mariah wrote by herself. She is an amazing all around musician, a real legend.

    Cannot wait.

    Now Playing: Supernatural

  6. Suicide Blonde August 18, 2014

    Smart move, tours>>>>>>>albums sales/ #1 singles.

    • Stephy. August 18, 2014

      Chile, she is selling out stadiums in Japan. lol, those poor folks must not know Mimi cannot sing like 1995 no mo’… I REALLY hope Mariah pulls something out of her ass! I would hate to see her gain ANOTHER disaster LIVE show under her belt.. Chile…

      • Suicide Blonde August 18, 2014

        Remember this is gonna be a tour, things will be more organized.

      • Stephy. August 18, 2014

        I hope so Paul. 🙁

      • Suicide Blonde August 18, 2014

        You calling me by my name, rare 😀

  7. INstinct August 18, 2014

    I’ve seen her three times. She puts on a good show.

    • Stephy. August 18, 2014

      REALLY? Please, did you see her LIVE in THIS decade? Did she really entertain you?

  8. GaGa’s Tampon August 18, 2014

    In other news Taylor Swift is coming for all our favs wigs

    • Stephy. August 18, 2014

      IN AMERICA! I like her tho. Her albums are cute. She can write her ass off too.

      • GaGa’s Tampon August 18, 2014

        Her fearless album will forever be my fav I experienced a lot of firsts with that album

  9. Theman August 18, 2014

    Shes more comfortable in her own
    Settings.. She’s pretty much great
    when she focuses & gives a damn..
    She ain’t gotta be MC, from back
    whenever. Her Aus shows were pretty
    damn good. She’s even better when
    she plays with her songs. She
    should switch her songs up..
    It would also be a plus for her
    to move around & wear different

  10. Monstah August 18, 2014

    Snooze Chanteuse Car Park Tour!!!

    • Stephy. August 18, 2014

      Stop, don’t make fun of her!

  11. Artgrave Sagging Tombstone Tour August 18, 2014

    Can’t sing, act or sing, she has lost it. The only thing that makes a headline is her photoshopped album cover.

  12. Zorror August 18, 2014

    Menopause Elusive Grandma cant depend on her ol’ money no more. Jermaine Dupri has forced her to work.

    • Truth Tea Told August 18, 2014

      😀 😀 😀

  13. Theman August 18, 2014

    Hating a** trolls.. Get outta here,
    It’s the same clown under a million
    screen names..

  14. BeyHive army August 18, 2014

    The only thing she could do to stay relevant is to get up on that stage pretending to sing while pre-recorded track on standby mode.

  15. Jordan August 18, 2014

    I’m going to see her in the states because yes first and foremost she’s a legend unlike ur faves. I just hope she sings live and that things for this tour are much more organized than last time. Anyway Sam why are you so pressed over her really? It kinda seems like she actually did something to you personally. I hope you take my comment into consideration because, you’re writing all these essays about her while she’s enjoying her 510 million dollar fortune living her life and not even knowing you exist. I feel bad for you because clearly there is something so bad about you that you are so unhappy.

  16. #TeamTinashe Stan (“AQUARIUS” 10.7.14) August 18, 2014

    I still get a kick of Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby.” I wish she was still that same old Mariah, sadly it’s not….. smh!

  17. Wendy Wills August 18, 2014

      It will be soon, ‘Stanley’ it was released to radio in March and July, so I wouldn’t brag about that. Does your fave have a #1 since Rihanna & Beyonce DESTROYED her career?
      Like what are you stanning for, Stanley?

  20. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) August 18, 2014

    Did someone say the queen is inspired by Beyoncé, who is clearly one of her subjects? LOL.

  21. No thanks August 18, 2014

  27. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) August 18, 2014


    Stay out the Queen’s posts. You don’t belong here. We don’t accept your kind.

  28. Lolz August 18, 2014

    Not my kind of concert but all the best. I just hope it doesn’t turn out embarrassing for her.

  29. Moomoo Cowry August 18, 2014

    She will b touring in asia because nobody cares abt her existence in Europe or US.

  30. Boring as Fark August 18, 2014

    This old $lut should retire after Memoirs of An Old KFC Bucket era… 🙁

  31. Elusive Old Waddle Much August 18, 2014


  32. Mark111 (Ciara’s a basic I-Ioe with basic instinct) August 18, 2014

    Asia loves her, so this is great for her. No one is on her level, when will your fave lip sync and wave their hand like they’re sanging? Not mine…

    • TheYoncèTroll August 18, 2014

      You’re right, you’re fav just sits on a stoll and lip simgs with that joker ass smile

  33. Too Funny August 18, 2014

    New material just to sell tickets? Old fat cow struggling to make ppl buy her tickets. Pathetic.

  34. Not here for this thrash August 18, 2014

    -hit the snooze button-


  35. TheYoncèTroll August 18, 2014

    It’s so sad that people think their OPINION is so important, yet they fail to realize it’s 7 billion people and this blog can’t represent 1/1000 of them.
    Good luck Mimi. Please add a bunch of stage effects and lights. This tour has to be right, or they’ll kill her. Sad days lie ahead if she doesn’t do this right.

  36. OMG Logic!!! August 19, 2014

    Legendary Divas like Mariah don’t need redemption. That is something for lessors. What the Queen needs to do (apart from getting proper rest and vocal exercises) is record various prerecorded vocals for any overly difficult notes or for if she has a bad day. Most importantly, she needs to work on her presence! If she’s going to lip sync, it has to be done with finesse like Celine Dion. Celine has lipped half her shows since 1998 and people are still surprised to find out!

  37. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! August 19, 2014

    Omg at Taylor swifts new song! It should be on here!!!

  38. JOHNVIDAL August 19, 2014

    Funny that Mariah won´t perform in Taiwan cause Celine Dion had the same date already… but now Celine has cancelled everything due to serious problems in her family (which I hope end soon, Celine can´t end her career for good).
    Great to see Mariah doing so well in Asia. Basically like she did a year ago in Australia with no promo effort needed.

  39. MC! August 19, 2014

    Only Mariah can tour in Asia she is the best selling international act there unlike some people who have a so called world tour and don’t travel there at all.
