Report: Mariah Carey Tapped For Vegas Residency?

Published: Friday 29th Aug 2014 by David


Move over Celine!

After announcing she was to take a leave of absence to care for her ailing husband until next spring, ‘A New Day Has Come’ singer Celine Dion may have seen her decision to do so create a major opportunity for fellow diva Mariah Carey.

Full story below…

TMZ reports:

TMZ has learned the Colosseum — where Celine Dion has had a residency for years — would love to sign soon-to-be single Mariah for a very lucrative weekend engagement. Our sources say the offer that went out was $750k for two shows!

We’re told the Colosseum’s operator, AEG is targeting a bunch of other heavy hitters too, including … AdeleBlake Shelton and Miranda LambertPrince, and Bruce Springsteen.

Comedians Chris Rock and Chelsea Handler — who both sell out bigger arenas than the Colosseum which seats about 4,300 — are also wanted.

We’re told this dream list was put together long before Celine’s recent announcement she was taking a leave of absence until next spring to be with her ailing husband. 

As it turns out, there will be plenty of open dates to fill. So far no one’s signed on the dotted line.


With Mimi’s album-selling skills seemingly in the gutter, a Vegas residency may be the perfect way for the icon to pave the way for a new era, by introducing the world to a stage show just as magical as her discography.

For as it stands, any expecting Beyonce-sized world tour from the star would be delusional to do so, but would be anything but disappointed if they travelled to Vegas to watch Carey glide through her material in an extravagant show akin to ‘Adventures of Mimi.’

    That would be a great fit. I hope it’s true!

    • Sad Sam August 29, 2014

      It’s funny how Sam hasn’t reported that Time Magazine just named Mariah Carey the biggest pop star ever. Yet when they had an article about Beyonce he reported that. # #

      • lets be real August 29, 2014

        Madonna? Michael Jackson are both bigger stars than Mariah ever was so,no

    Yes! ..
    This is a perfect setting for her ..

    • You tried it.. August 29, 2014

      @Sam & TGJ, why do most articles on this site reference Beyonce? This post has nothing to do with her. Yall are obsessed with Bey and it’s starting to get annoying and pathetic.

  3. Skyfall August 29, 2014

    Yaaaas i hope she takes the deal although I feel $750k is not a deal but then again they don’t want to lose money so they’re probably going to see how tk goes then up her pay. I really want Mariah to get p90x and get back in shape for the road, and get plenty of vocal rest. And keep the liping to a minimum.

    • FAF August 29, 2014

      It’s not she should get way more than that

      She’s not gonna fake it Ci got 3mil to perform in Sa

  4. yes August 29, 2014

    About time.

  5. Special Delivery August 29, 2014

    Oh gawsh. Might possibly be more disasterous than Britney.

    • Mariah Damita Jo Houston August 29, 2014

      No. What is more disastrous right now is that bumpy reddish area you call your sphincter.

  6. Mariah Damita Jo Houston August 29, 2014

    It is sad to read a BeyHive member disguised as a blogger continue to great artists by negating their legacies paved for their favorite just because the artists don’t have to keep proving their legendary and iconic statuses.

    • Sad Sam August 29, 2014

      Yes. TGJ has turned into nothing more than a Beyonce worshipping fan site / message board where anyone who isn’t Beyonce is compared to her and trash talked. This is not the blog I remember it being. How sad.

  7. Mark111 ( Me. I Am Divorced ) August 29, 2014

    Of course! That’s where all the washed up lip syncers go.

    • janet. August 29, 2014

      Agreed. Janet will be announcing her dates after.

      • Mariah Damita Jo Houston August 29, 2014

        As will Beyonce when she announces it on the anniversary of her “surprise” album this December because she was surprised that she could not even meet 1/4 of Adele’s 21 album sales.

      • ka August 30, 2014

        I don’t think Janet is Vegas status yet, let see how her new music which is rumored to be coming this November does. Plus not forget she has her Billionaire hubby to up sales if needed not that she would or need to like other artist would to hit BB 200.

    • LB August 29, 2014

      LMAO When will Ciara get a residency there?

      • FAF August 29, 2014

        She don’t need it she got 3mil for Sa

        And six figures to headline la gay pride

      • Mark111 ( Me. I Am Divorced ) August 29, 2014

        I’m sure there’s a parking lot waiting for her somewhere there.

      • FAF August 29, 2014

        Her club rate is 300k

        That’s just CLUBS sis

      • FAF August 29, 2014

        So what’s Aaliyah’s next tour ?

      • LB August 29, 2014

        LMAO Not a parking lot in Vegas

      • FAF August 29, 2014

        ^thats for damn sure 😆 nowhere FAGGGGS

    • sleazy August 30, 2014

      I give rihanna 3 years tops home girl will be competing with likes of Farah abrahams and tila tequila yalll know rih career gon die she gon be bankrupt and what she gon do? Do what she does best f€ck for money

  8. NT August 29, 2014

    If this is true , it’ll be one of the best business moves she’s made in a very long time. I think this is really good for her, her current career and her targeted audience.

  9. Beysus August 29, 2014

    Get back on that stage Mimi and do your thaaang!!! 😉

  10. UGH August 29, 2014

    This could be a great thing for Mimi if she does it right. I’m guessing that she will combine this with the tour or make this the tour. Very intelligent and easy way to push tickets and get $$$. Good for her.

  11. Mariah Damita Jo Houston August 29, 2014

    The more TGJ keeps shading Mariah Carey in favor of Beyonce proves what every other BeyHive member does when they “defend” Beyonce’s honor. Lambs, Barbs, Monster, Stars, Navy, etc. don’t have to go “attack” or sending empty death threats to strangers on social media to defend their artists iconic and legendary statuses. With that said, Beyonce must be a smoke-and-mirrors act because her stans like TGJ have to remind the world daily about her greatness.

  12. Rosie August 29, 2014

    As long as she doesn’t lip-sync, it would be a great pairing. The other artists/comedians in consideration are also excellent.

  13. Adrian August 29, 2014

    She did this back in 09 before the Angel’s Advocate Tour. Made a Vegas stop and slayed!

  14. LB August 29, 2014

    $750K is too LOW a figure for the biggest selling female artist of the Soundscan era, someone with 18 #1s and the most successful female artist EVER.

    • August 29, 2014

      That’s a lot of money for two days!
      How much do you make in two days sir?

      • LB August 29, 2014

        I wish I made $180K; I’m just saying Mariah is too big a star, she should get more considering her resume.

  15. Knowles Carter August 29, 2014

    No ones interested in her and she can’t even sing anymore. Don’t even get me started on her boring performances

    • BeeHive #1 August 29, 2014

      Mooyoncè CAN’T SING.

    • Sad Sam August 29, 2014

      She could run around stage and thrust her @$$ and pu$$y evrywhere. Is that what you call entertainment?

      • LB August 29, 2014

        Don’t forget she would open her legs with her daughter sitting front row

    • Mark111 ( Me. I Am Divorced ) August 29, 2014

      That’s my favorite MC song as well. Round in Circles is 2nd.

      • LB August 29, 2014

        Yes, that song is awesome, fourth of July is too.

  16. LB August 29, 2014

    Butterfly > The Elusive Chantuese > Mariah Carey > Rainbow > BoreDream > everything else > Charmbracelet > Glitter > The Emancipation of Mimi

  17. JOHNVIDAL August 29, 2014

    I think some of you guys can´t read. This would only be for a weekend. They are trying to do something now that Celine has cancelled everything for months (hope it goes well for her) and they are trying to get many different artists only for a couple of nights each.

  18. LB August 29, 2014

    Everyone needs to catch that TEA from @GaGa’s Tampon , I’m CRYING!!!!!!!

    Sam, make a post, that is GOLDEN!!!!!!

  19. JOHNVIDAL August 29, 2014

    Oh and btw, why does TGJ write another essay giving advice to Mariah Carey? (remember they said “You´re Mine” was the single Mariah needed to top the charts once more LOL). And why do they always choose the worst photos of Mariah? So damn biased it´s not even funny.

  20. Stephy. August 29, 2014

    Mariah Carey you betta get that money boo! YASSS!

    • LB August 29, 2014

      $750K though? She deserves way more than this.

      • Stephy. August 29, 2014

        Well, considering there would be a good amount of lip syncing going on. She definitely does not need to be getting no more then 500K – 700K. And, yes! Celine Dion lips like s*** but she has proven herself to be Queen of Vegas. Mariah has to prove that she can sell out in order to be getting paid 1+ million per show.

      • LB August 29, 2014

        But she sold out arenas in Sydney Australia, plus Celine Fraudion, who charges $1,000 ticket for lip syncing, has got nothing on Mariah Carey.

        You cannot compare the two, one is steak, the other one is burger meat.

  21. Stephy. August 29, 2014

    @MarkyMark, why you so obsessed with Mariah Carey? Worry about Miss Rihanna & Aaliyah boo.

    • Mark111 ( Me. I Am Divorced ) August 29, 2014

      I’m not… and clearly the LAMES aren’t neither.

      • Stephy. August 29, 2014

        Clearly you are.. Judging by your user-name. Love You 🙂

  22. Cowriah (number 1 lip syncher) August 29, 2014

    This will be the biggest lip synced show in history, we’re not ready for the slayege…

  23. Antonio August 29, 2014

    It’s not like Mariah needs the money tbh. I can’t with TGJ saying Mariah’s album selling skills are in the gutter just because one album flopped. You can’t call Memoirs, Glitter and Charmbracelet flops because 600k, 1 mil and 1 mil are considered huge commercial successes in today’s industry. MIAM just lacked a cohesive vision and strong promo, Memoirs singles sucked and Glitter and Charmbracelet’s negative reviews hurt their selling power. But anyway, Mariah should consider a Las Vegas residency. Something like a 6-8 long stint wouldn’t hurt… 3-4 shows a week, around $125 per ticker in 3500 seat venue wouldn’t be bad at all. But I’m seriously dead an Aaliyah stan trying to throw shade as usual when Ciara’s debut album shitted on her whole discography. You can’t throw shade if the only way your fave sold an considerable amount of albums is because they died because the last time I checked… AANBAN and OIAM both peaked at #18 on the BB 200 and sold only 3.5 and 5 mil respectively, roughly the same amount of Ciara’s first 2 albums… The Aaliyah album was flopping when Baby Girl died… 400k in 5 wks, that’s why her label rushed out 2 singles (Rock the Boat/More Than a Woman) to help drive up sales. Aaliyah would’ve faded away as easily as Mya and Monica. Brandy only fell off commerically because her fake image and the car accident hurt her image. Yeah, TGJ has become a Beyoncé fan site… At this age and point on her career, Mariah doesn’t need a Beyoncé sized world tour… She’s already done that with Music Box, Daydream, Butterfly and Emancipation. At this point, she should just concentrate more on the music itself and branching out into other ventures likes movies and endorsement deals. Hopefully, the split from Nick will motivate her to clean her act up

    • Brian310 August 29, 2014

      What the hell are you babbling about?…Aaliyah’s 1st album sold 3mil in the states and 6mil ww, which is the same as ciara debut, her 2nd album sold 3 mil in the US and sold 8mil ww, ciara 2nd album sold 1mil and 2mil ww, her last album was her highest 1st week sales and her quickest to be certified with only 2 performances(1 during the week her album released and the other the week of her death) and promotional spots promoting her brand and name and not the album. The label also didn’t rush out 2 singles they saw the and heard how much Rock Da Boat was a GP favorite so they went with that instead of More than a Woman, her filming 2 movies they were about to embark on a heavy promo trail but she passed…next time you try to shade someone know your info instead of making yourself look like a dumbass.

      • sleazy August 31, 2014

        Oh the damn lies! Before Aaliyah death home girl album wasn’t even gold and her singles weren’t doing well!!!!! Stop the lies her sales went up when she died go look it up smdh the lies

  24. CherylSoldier August 29, 2014

  25. Suicide Blonde August 29, 2014

  29. Mingxx August 29, 2014

  31. Jane August 30, 2014

    Her concert boring as hell…

    Be4 2000 (when her voice was okai) it would be worth it to see

    But now if u think about her voice condition and her concert routine

    It’s not gonna be fun concert for sure.

    I’ve been her concert once

    It was so boring..

  32. Dossome August 30, 2014

    Well,it’s a 2-3 day engagement…Funny how Sam would post uncomfirmed reports but when TIME magazine named Mariah the most successful enduring pop-star or when #Beautiful won an ASCAP there were no articles.

    • JOHNVIDAL August 30, 2014

      Sam is desperate and sad.
