Mariah Carey Announces Eagerly-Anticipated Tour – ‘THE ADVENTURES OF MIMI: THE VOICE, THE HITS, THE TOUR’ – the Event of the Year!!

“THE ADVENTURES OF MIMI: THE VOICE, THE HITS, THE TOUR” which launches August 5th in Miami and ends October 10th in Phoenix, will make stops in 30 cities across the U.S. and Canada. Tickets for most dates will go on sale Friday, June 2nd. The tour is being produced by Live Nation. (Please see tour dates below.)

Opening for Mariah on selected dates during her first month of shows will be dancehall superstar Sean Paul — with special surprise guests expected to add to the fun en route. “THE ADVENTURES OF MIMI: THE VOICE, THE HITS, THE TOUR” is shaping up to be a grand celebration for Mariah, who will draw on songs — many performed for the first time ever — from her 15-year career.

Enjoying one of the most extraordinary years of her entire career, Mariah Carey’s 6x-platinum Island Records album “The Emancipation Of Mimi” generated three Grammy awards and recently passed its one year anniversary on the Billboard 200 Albums chart (this week marks its 58th week on the chart). Mimi includes Mariah’s 16th and 17th #1 career singles, “We Belong Together” and “Don’t Forget About Us,” respectively — which tied one of the most enduring chart records in Billboard Hot 100 history, Elvis Presley’s 17 #1’s. Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist with the potential to surpass the Beatles’ all-time high of 20 #1 hits. Mimi, the biggest-selling album of 2005, has sold over 9 million units worldwide to date, bringing Mariah’s career sales to over 160 million units world wide.
