Mariah Carey Cancels Christmas Shows

Published: Wednesday 15th Nov 2017 by Sam

Bad news for Mariah Carey fans.

The legend has been forced to scrap dates on her ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ concert series.

Find out why below…

In a statement, Mimi revealed that illness has rendered her unable to perform on the trek – which was due to start in two days:

Lambs! Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, it seems I’ve received a present of my own; a lovely upper respiratory infection after last week’s flu. ? Bleak! You know there is nothing I love more than celebrating the holidays with my festive Christmas show, but I have to take my Doctor’s orders and rest until he says I can sing on stage. Until then, unfortunately, I have to cancel the first several shows of my upcoming Christmas tour. I’m going to do all that I can so that I can see you soon! ❤☃???

It’s not yet apparent how many shows have been scrapped as a result of the 47-year-old’s health predicament.

For now, the tour is scheduled to hit a number of cities domestically and internationally through December, including New York, Las Vegas, and London.

    I purchased front row tickets at Caesars palace in Windsor Canada or my Birthday and its really sad to hear.

    I was eagerly looking forward to seeing her again. I hope she does something so she can return to Canada.

    Get better MIMI

    All she gon do is lipsynch it anyway

    • Theman November 15, 2017

      Not really..

    • The Truth November 16, 2017

      You’ve clearly never been to a Mariah concert. You can literally hear her singing NATURALLY through the mic and from the stage. Otherwise, her fans would have caught on years ago to a lip syncing diva … but not with Mimi, dahhling!

    Get better MIMI‼️ I had the flu last week and have upper respiratory infection the week after so I feel your pain. REST ?

  5. Achooo! November 15, 2017

    She better get on that garlic diet. However, Mariah don’t sing live anymore and she barely entertain. I’m calling bs on that excuse hmmm.

    She needs time to heal after that gastric sleeve surgery she just got.

    It’s tough, most of us are guaranteed at least one tussle with either flu, cold or chest infection during winter.., it’s wishful thinking to believe one can pack their schedule full and not come a cropper at some point. Contrary to the haters Mariah can still sing extremely well, however no one can sing well with flu (not even Beyoncé).

    • Jasmine November 15, 2017

      Toni Braxton sounds great with a flu. Whitney did too. The people you perceive as “haters” are just realists / cynical. In life everyone is not going to be optimistic / gullible. Grow up and deal instead of petty name calling.

      • Guest November 15, 2017

        Those are exceptions, not the norm. Moreover, there was no social media back then and doing an entire show while ill is beyond irresponsible.

      • Jasmine November 15, 2017

        @Guest I can keep naming artists like Gladys Knight, Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross, Tina Turner, etc all who done concerts while having the flu and still sounding great. Being the “norm” in your little brain is irrelevelant. Whether ir not the concert ends up on social media is irrelevant. It is NOT “irresponsible” to perform a show with a cold, especially when you are an artist like Mariah that is lip-synching most of the show. What is irresponsible though is announcing a bunch of concert dates, having your fans purchase concert tickets, plane tickets, and hotel costs, and then get weight loss surgery and cancel on them with a lame excuse like I have the flu and I just know that I will need to recover from the flu for a few months.

      • Theman November 16, 2017

        You sound stupid as shyt. She sings a lot during her holiday shows. If she’s not up to par then let it be. The surgery shyt wasn’t a sure thing.. She didn’t even go to the premiere of her new movie….

      • Jasmine November 16, 2017

        She was rocking a belly for 5 months straight and lost the weight overnight. That is called surgery evidence. Now she is home recovering. She has had a tummy tuck and lipo before so this is nothing new. Since when does a ‘flu’ cause you to miss movie premiers and cancel concerts scheduled a month or two out? You are the stupid one lamb and im the realist sh|tting all over your delusions with common sense!

      • JOHNVIDAL November 16, 2017

        Jasmine everything you are saying here is truly absurd. After that supposed surgery she has already been working out there for everybody to see. So this is not a case of “rest after surgery” obviously. Mariah is doing too many shows throughout the whole year for several years now. Getting the flu or an infection and having to cancel a few shows is bound to happen, especially at 50 years old. Whitney? yes she still did her shows with a flu, but she was in her 20s. There are plenty of Mariah tv performances you can check from the early 90s where she was clearly ill that particular day and still she soounded amazing, although you can clearly detect her voice was ill. Stop being an ass for no reason.
        This is absolutely normal. Most people cancel shows at some point. Including Celine and every pucking body.

      • Jasmine November 16, 2017

        @JohnVidal I get what you are saying but sometimes I like to troll people for the fun of it. Mariah fans are an easy target because their fav is very messy.

    • ??? November 16, 2017
