Mariah Carey is gearing up to spread some Christmas cheer Stateside.

The diva, who just wrapped up the Asian leg of her new tour ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show’, is heading home for the holidays and gifting fellow New Yorker’s four live shows.

Details below…

Per a new press release, the 45-year-old will bring her all-time favorite Christmas hits to the Beacon Theatre for four unprecedented performances this December 15th, 16th, 18th & 20th.

Mimi will offer live renditions of cuts from her global blockbuster album ‘Merry Christmas’, which has sold over 14 million copies to date and is certified 5x platinum by the RIAA. Carey will also perform a selection of tracks from her critically-acclaimed holiday follow up, ‘Merry Christmas II You’ (a TGJ favourite).

Speaking on the shows, Mariah said:

“I can’t imagine being anywhere more special than live on stage, in my hometown, celebrating with my fans during the Christmas season, my most treasured time of the year. I can’t wait!” {Source}

Tickets go on-sale November 10th, with pricing range between $59.50 USD – $250.00 USD.

****************

Smart move on the part of Team Mariah (whoever that is these days). She’s unofficially the Christmas queen – with annual Holiday sales to match; so why not continue to capitalize on it? She did, after all, write one of the most iconic Xmas tracks of all-time…

    I’ve been to 3 of her XMAS specials. Her Joy to the World & All I Want for Christmas is You thing at the Rockefeller Center in 2012 & 2013 and the CBS special (longest day ever, yet so funny) special when she was pregnant. I can’t wait to go!

    Yes, right around my birthday. I can’t wait to go! I’ve been waiting forever to see her in concert. She’s one of my favorite artists ever. Legend!

      How can YOU judge vocal talent when your fav was dragged so bad straining with one octave? Don’t worry about Mimi, bc her voice is STILL there, worry more about the fact your fav NEVER HAD nor NEVER WILL be talented.

    Mariah will do just fine. Haters gonna hate .

    Correction: Merry Christmas has sold 15 million copies worldwide & is the best selling Christmas album of ALL time. Also, All I Want For Christmas Is You has sold 14 million singles worldwide. Making it the 3rd best selling single by a female artist of all time. The song was written/produced by Mariah Carey & Walter Afanasieff (whom MC gave writers credits too). –
    BYE Samantha with yo WEAK shade. The REAL shade is that Mariah’s X-Mas song will outlast ALL of YOUR favs entire career. Her X-Mas classic will be played 20-30 years from now. And, will soon snatch the title from Nippy as the best selling female single of all time. Cheers DAhhhhling! Let the FESTIVE season begin!

    She still has her concerts in Australia and New Zealand during the first part of November too. This is great news and a smart move.
    She´s been sounding amazing and having fun during her last 4-5 concerts in Asia (I still have to check the one in Thailand). She needed this!

    Have you guys seen Mariah is also headlining Jamaica´s Jazz Festival in January? It´s a great audience. Celine Dion was there 2 or 3 years ago and it was so nice.
