Mariah Carey is reportedly in the running to take over the Palace for a time…
The 44-year-old half-Venezuelan American Grammy-winning singer is reportedly being eyed to replace Celine Dion at the Colosseum at Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace, according to TMZ.
Dion will soon be taking an indefinite hiatus from her longtime residency at the resort and casino. And, TMZ says that the Colosseum is interested in signing Carey for “a very lucrative weekend engagement.”
They have reportedly offered the soon-to-be-single superstar $750,000 for two shows at the legendary venue.
Carey isn’t the only star wanted to play shows there. The Coloseum operator, AEG, is also targeting other big names like Adele, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Prince and Bruce Springsteen.
Earlier this month, Dion announced she’d put her Las Vegas residency on hold and canceled her remaining tour dates indefinitely to focus on her ailing husband, Rene Angelil.
“I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband’s healing, and to do so, it’s important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children,” she said in a statement.
