Mariah Carey Readies European Tour

Mariah Carey may be stationed in Las Vegas, but the seasoned songbird will be taking flight to European shores next year.

Details below…

The 45-year-old diva, who has enjoyed success with her current ‘#1 To Infinity’ show at The Colosseum, is confirmed to be mapping out a full fledged Euro run in early 2016.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ‘We Belong Together’ belter has made a major business shift that sees her move from the Creative Arts Agency to UTA. The latter will now represent Mimi in areas including music, film, television, digital, licensing and endorsements.

Touring, per the report, will be the first call of duty; Carey will – as has been routine – perform a series of Christmas shows in her hometown of New York in December. The European tour, which will be her first in 13 years, will commence the following Spring.

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

Kudos to Ms. Carey, who has in the last six months uprooted and replanted every important facet of her team (label, publicist, manager, and creative representation).

As for the European trek, yes, yes, and yes!

Granted most of Mariah’s recent albums haven’t sold strongly enough to serve as a vehicle for a tour, yours truly can remember being baffled at why the ‘Adventures of Mimi’ (which was erected in support of her blockbuster ‘Emancipation’ album) was limited to the US.

Perhaps, in light of the reality that few artists actually make money from music these days, Mimi has realised that she’ll have to do what she managed to avoid for much of her heyday – perform extensively… internationally.

Here’s hoping her voice is up to it. Because, as glad her Euro Lambs will be to see her, the region is renown for being ruthless if shows aren’t up to par.

      Agree with the lambs that this chick wasted a great cd: that chantuse Cd had that song FADED and THIRSTY and this chick disappeared when she should have been promoting those incredible songs.

      She has lost her fire and love of music, its evident. No shade but she needs to retire and enjoy her new boo and family. Its evident she’s about making a dollar and cares ZERO fuks about her vocals, live performances.

      SHE IS ALSO MEDICATED to the point she cant even walk in her heels anymore and has to be helped.

    This is so good for Mariah. Things are finally seeming to be on an upswing for her + she deserves it. Sometimes you do have to clean house + start fresh. I can’t wait for her to announce the Christmas shows. Last year was so great + she sounded so good! I want to go see her.

    I love her music but mariah is not that powerful like american in here..

    ppl here want gaga or beyonce .. something like that..

    • OMG Logic!!! July 29, 2015

      BYE @ you pretending Thighyonce is anything but local. Gaga I’ll believe, but the thief, no b1tch.

      • OMG Logic!!! July 29, 2015

        **other than local**

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig July 30, 2015

        So let’s just pretend that Beyoncé didn’t just come off of one of the most successful female tours of all time. To do that you need to be a successful artist across the globe, which Beyoncé is.

    She has had certain territories in Europe where some of her albums have done well. She also doesn’t promote much in Europe. She’s getting money everywhere.

  12. JOHNVIDAL July 30, 2015

    Really surprised!
    Europe is the territory she has clearly abandoned most for years except for a few promo appearances in Paris and London from time to time. Although it is normal because Europe doesn´t like R&B and hip hop. And she went on that direction 15 years ago already.
    Oh and although it is true Europe doesn´t use her like that as much as America and Asia, I confirm her classics don´t stop sounding and will forever sound in European radiowaves. Not to mention she has a yearly hit with “All I want” in Europe as much as in any other place around the world.

    After seeing them roll her out of shape b*** out on that vegas stage to perform Honey in that bodysuit. I remember hearing the audience gasp and laugh.

    Shes 100% a looneytune and it took be 21 years to grasp that. When you look at her glassy eyes, its like looking at a bipolar on medication. Shes 100% on some medication.

    She is slowly destroying her legacy. She won’t march her silly ass on a stage and sing her heart out. Do not tell me Love Takes time or Thank God I found you were incredible, I saw them, what about the other 16 songs in the boring ass show???

    MIAMTEC was a really good album that she could have promoted but blamed it on def jam. Girl you are wearing me thin

    I think it’s great that Mimi is getting those coins, but I think she should really enjoy her time with #DemBabies and her new Beaux. Vegas is perfect for her because she gets a few days off in the week to spend with her family. Going on a world tour at this point in her career isn’t necessary because she’s already reached legendary status

  15. DTG July 30, 2015

    LOL at this joke has been trying to tour, especially Europe of all places. Good luck playing when no one there is into you.

    While it’s heartening to hear that she has freshened up her team I am still waiting to see evidence that it is doing her favours. Granted she is doing well with her residency however I simply see this as buying herself creative time while still being highly visible. This woman needs an intensive 3 month overhaul; fitness, vocal surgery and a restyle. If Sam Smith, Adele and even Megan Trainor have all had successful vocal treatment then surely Mariah could begin to look into it for herself. It’s not as if she doesn’t already lipsync for the God’s, a few months more to heal from voice surgery wouldn’t hurt.
