Mariah Careyis proving to be the Queen of Christmas…
The 50-year-old half-Venezuelan American songstress and “All I Want for Christmas is You” singer has announced a holiday tour in the form of a limited engagement trek in five cities to celebrate the 25th anniversary of her iconic album Merry Christmas.
Carey’s festive tour will begin in November with a five-show holiday residency at Caesars Palacein Las Vegas, which was announced earlier this year. The new batch of dates includes five more shows in December, beginning in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on December 7, with the grand finale at New York’s Madison Square Gardenon December 15.
The All I Want For Christmas Is You Tour will feature tunes from Carey’s Merry Christmas as well as her biggest non-holiday hits.
In addition to the tour, Carey announced last month that she will re-release Merry Christmas in honor of the album’s 25th anniversary. The two-disc deluxe edition will feature the original album as well as another disc with rare remixes and unreleased live performances.
Tickets for the All I Want For Christmas Is You Tour dates will go on sale October 4 at 10:00 am. local time. Those who pre-order the deluxe editionof Merry Christmas will have access to a pre-sale beginning October 1 at 11:00 am local time, and Mariah Carey fan club members will also be able to purchase tickets on October 1 at 10:00 a.m. local time.
Additionally, Citi cardmembers will have access to a presale beginning October 2 at 10:00 am local time. All presales will end on October 3 at 10:00 pm local time. (Tickets for her Las Vegas Christmas residency and 2020 shows are already available.)
Carey is spreading the holiday cheer even further with her Christmas tour, as $1 from each ticket sold will benefit Toys for Tots. The superstar also encourages fans to bring unwrapped toys to donate at each tour stop.
