Report: Mariah Carey Readying ‘Butterfly World Tour’ / VH1 Docuseries

Published: Monday 18th Sep 2017 by Sam

Mariah Carey celebrated the 20th anniversary of her ‘Butterfly’ album this past week, but it appears she has bigger plans to mark the occasion.

Full story below…

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.

Still, she’s outchea out here working and we’re not mad at that.

Your thoughts?

    I want her series to be REAL & not E! Network vibes…

    Butterfly already had a tour, so this may just be HYPE, we hear she’s going back to Vegas to REPLACE Celine Dion whose show has not been selling well. Mariah needs to record a New CD with songs like Faded, Camufloge and You don’t know what to do and get her hit streak back. Dump the GAY asian backup dancer and the CORNY stealing-ass manager Stella.

      Celine keeps doing bigger shows than Mariah everywhere so that really sounds off (she did a big European tour again this summer). Mariah replacing Celine in Vegas because Celine doesn´t sell? Really not credible. At least not in the way you put it.

      lmao girl bye, a celine show not selling well? lmao the lies you tell…

    • Jasmine September 18, 2017

      Sorry I have to disagree with Celine not selling. Celine has a contract and she is a professional. The number of tickets sold does not really matter because Celine always completes her contracts. Thus, Mariah is NOT replacing Celine. I like Mariah but I think she needs rehab first, followed by 6 months with a physical trainer to get in shape, and then she will be ready to tour. Right now, Mariah has been tarnishing her image by putting on lazy shows and being out of shape. I want Mariah to WIN, but I want her to win the right way! Her fans and casual ticket buyers deserve a good shows and Mariah’s reputation needs to be rebuilt (fire that female manager ASAP).

    In a rapidly changing world, the only route that leads you to failure is to dare not take the risk.

    I really like that she’s getting more and more into touring, she never really cared for it in her heyday, but I think that performing just the entire album is not a good idea to attract the masses, she has many hits from other albums that fans all over the world want to hear. Anyway, I hope she comes to Stockholm or at least to one of the other Nordic countries so I can get tickets to see her.

    • JOHNVIDAL September 18, 2017

      Are you living there???? I think she was in those countris last year already.

      • Suicide Blonde September 18, 2017

        I live in Stockholm, I’m Swedish, my parents are Swedish, my whole family is from here, so I moved back to my original homeland, it’s been a couple of years now. Mariah was in April 2016 here but I couldn’t get tickets, I could fly to Oslo or Copenhagen if she doesn’t come here anyway, so I definitely won’t miss this tour, hopefully.

        @Suicide Girl stop the lies. We all know your racist a zz lives in a dumpster behind one of those Miljonprogrammet public housing buildings and you just use the free computer at the library to get online to spew your hatred and b|tch talk. You did not go to Mariah’s concert because they would not accept your welfare checks.

    I personally don’t want to see Mariah on a promoting train for new music, as much as I want to see her perform The Entire Butterfly album from top to bottom.
    Please give us a new album but please do this tour by only singing the Butterfly Album, nothing else.
    I think that is promotion enough for people to be interested in new music from Mariah. It allows the public to fall in love with her again.

  7. AnonymousTruth September 18, 2017

    I don’t think Mariah should be doing a world anything …she just gon be butchering her old catalogue all over the gaff ….
    it’s quite scary the thought of it actually .

    • JOHNVIDAL September 18, 2017

      She has already done that in the last 2-3 years. Her two visits to Australia were great and she got good reviews. And she did great all over Europe last year and South Africa.

      • Oh September 18, 2017

        She did not do the entire Butterfly album from top to bottom. Mariah set list has been very much the same for a very long time. It’s time she pays Album cuts more attention and why not start with Butterfly?
        Fourth of July, The Roof, BabyDoll, Close My Eyes, etc

    • JOHNVIDAL September 19, 2017

      I know. I said she´s been touring worldwide already, which is what this guy said.

  8. Devin roybal September 18, 2017

    I think that’s alsome I hope she comes to denver at the stadium where the broncos play at. That would be alsome.

  9. Theman September 18, 2017

    What would be the point of this? She should record a new album & if she wants to add songs from butterfly into the mix, then do a segment or a batch of songs to incorporate that. That’s if she’s doing her own tour. If she’s doing a new residency then she could rename it ‘The Hits’.. By the way she has been great on tour recently..

  10. M September 18, 2017

    Definitely here for alllllll of this! I’m just hoping there’s a new record somewhere in the mix soon as well. It’s been over 3 years now and the fans are definitely wanting some new material. Either way, mama is definitely about her coins right now so good for her!
