Mariah Carey Announces “The Celebration of Mimi” Exclusive Engagement at Las Vegas’ Dolby Live in Park MGM

Mariah Carey is (Las Vegas) stripping things down…

The 54-year-old half-Venezuelan American Grammy-winning superstar will be returning to Sin City for a third time to debut of The Celebration of Mimi, April 12 through April 27 at Dolby Live in Park MGM.

Mariah CareyThe “exclusive engagement” (April 12, 13, 17, 19, 20, 24, 26 and 27) toasts the 19th anniversary of The Emancipation of Mimi, which was released on April 12, 2005. 

A statement shared with Billboard states that “the Las Vegas shows will feature fan favorites from that album as well as other hits from her unparalleled illustrious career.”

The Emancipation of Mimi, with hits such as “We Belong Together” and “Shake It Off,” was one of the top-selling albums of its year and is known within her catalog as the “comeback album.”

Making another comeback — this time on the Las Vegas Strip — The Celebration of Mimi engagement, backed by Live Nation and MGM Resorts, follows Carey’s first two residencies at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, #1 to Infinity (2015-2017) and The Butterfly Returns (2018-2020). Infinity was a chronological performance of her 18 No. 1 hits, starting with 1990’s “Vision of Love” and ending with 2008’s “Touch My Body.” While that show focused on Carey the entertainer, “Butterfly” capitalized on Carey the singer with a powerful 23-song set list of big hits, surprises and her own personal favorites. Since 2020, Carey has mostly performed and toured with her holiday music.

Carey got her break in 1990 with the smash hit “Vision of Love” and since sold more than 200 million albums with 19 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles. Just days ago the five-octave-range singer accepted the Global Impact Award during the Recording Academy Honors presented by the Black Music Collective.

Tickets will go on sale to the public Saturday, February 10 for April 12, 13, 17, 19, 20, 24, 26 and 27.

Limited to only eight dates, it seems as if Carey is taking a page from Kelly Clarkson’s Las Vegas strategy book. Last year, Clarkson announced a 10-date run of Chemistry. All shows sold out. Since then, she has picked select weekends to return including New Years and Super Bowl. With this being the third chapter in her Las Vegas legacy, the chances of more dates coming down the line seem probable.

Carey’s announcement follows last week’s news that Mexican group Los Bukis will perform the Strip’s first-ever full Latin and Spanish-language residency, launching May 3 at Dolby Live at Park MGM. The theater is also home to Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and Lady Gaga.

The residency, initially set to wrap in early September, will receive five additional dates in February at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

Carey also told PEOPLE that she’s been back in the studio working on a new album.

“Some of the record is lighthearted and fun, and some [songs] I really went deep in terms of the lyrical content. There’s a nice cross-section of things,” Carey said about the future release. The upcoming album will be Carey’s long-awaited follow up to 2014’s Me. I Am Mariah….The Elusive Chanteuse.

Tickets to the extended dates of Carey’s “The Butterfly Returns” Vegas residency go on sale Friday, August 31 at 10:00 am local time, but fan club members will be granted early access.

Though Carey has announced five dates, only four are available through her website at the time of press.
