Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas tour-dates have been announced

Mariah Carey. It just wouldn’t be Christmas without her.

All I Want For Christmas is coming up on its milestone quarter-century – and the 1994 classic hit remains very much part and parcel of the festive season.

Now Mariah herself has announced that she’s taking her Yuletide tour on the road, selecting two lucky locations for gigs in December.

Step forward Manchester and London; not quite on home-soil but oh-so close – close enough certainly to merit a cheeky flight to see Ms Carey in all her Christmas glory.

The gigs – which take place on Sunday, December 10 (Manchester), and Monday, December 11 (London) – are also her only European dates.

Tickets go on sale on September 8 and will be a sell-out.

Mariah has played US Christmas gigs in the past – and they’re always HUGE. Indeed, her Manchester and London shows will be the same as the ones she’s playing in Las Vegas on four December dates also this year.

A description on the Caesar’s Palace site reads: “Mariah Carey returns to The Colosseum this December with her acclaimed Christmas concert series All I Want For Christmas Is You.

“Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time, with more than 220 million records sold. As a singer, songwriter and producer, Carey has been recognized with multiple Grammy Awards, 21 American Music Awards, and 14 Billboard Music Awards among a myriad of other accolades.”

It adds: “The iconic All I Want For Christmas Is You is not only Mariah Carey’s biggest selling song, but with over 14 million copies sold and counting, it is one of the bestselling songs of all time – Christmas or otherwise.”
