Mariah Carey has signed a deal for a lucrative Las Vegas residency.
The diva has confirmed reports she is following in the footsteps of Sir Elton John, Rod Stewart and Celine Dion by signing a multi-million dollar deal to perform her greatest hits at Caesars Palace in Sin City.
The pop superstar tells Ellen DeGeneres, “I’m going to do my first ever residency in Vegas at Caesars. This is a special event for me. And again, I have to hope that the fans will enjoy this cause I’m gonna be performing, which was kind of inspired by my album Number 1’s, and this is now the updated version with 18 of them. Hopefully other people will enjoy this. I’ve never done this before.”
During the TV show, Carey was seen surprising fans at the Las Vegas resort by dressing up a housekeeper and handing them all tickets to her show.
The residency begins on May 6, 2015 and tickets for the first 18 performances in 2015 are on-sale now! The dates are as follows:
May: 6, 9, 10, 13, 16, 17, 20, 23, 24
