On the heels of her most critically acclaimed album of her career, "Me. I am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse," best-selling female artist of all time Mariah Carey embarks on a world tour entitled "The Elusive Chanteuse Show." This will be Mariah's first reemergence to the stage since her celebrated and extensive "The Adventures of Mimi" tour in 2006.
The Elusive Chanteuse Show will launch with two dates in Japan, a favorite stop for Carey, where she holds the title of the best selling international artist with over 20 million albums sold.
Mariah's 'Chanteuse' will play 12 exclusive dates in Asia starting October 4, 2014, including the superstar's first ever visit to mainland China. Visit mariahcarey.com/tour for up-to-date information as the shows get announced.
Carey's set list will be an exciting mix of her biggest hits, fan-favorite album cuts, never-before-performed selections from her #1 R&B Album "Me. I am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse" and many more surprises!
"I want to experience the spontaneity and emotion that I put into this album on stage with my fans," says Carey. "I can't stop writing songs so don't be surprised if you hear a brand new song that I just wrote the night before the show in your city!"
