Christmas has come in July, it seems: just a few days after announcing her October tour dates in Macau and Shenzhen, pop legend Mariah Carey has confirmed a Shanghai date for her latest world tour.
One of the best-selling artists of all time and the recipient of five Grammy Awards, Carey is credited with inspiring a generation of pop and R&B singers worldwide. Nicknamed 'Songbird Supreme' by the Guinness World Records, she's found enduring fame thanks to her amazing vocal abilities: a five-octave vocal range and skillful command of the whistle register.
Carey's storied career spans her celebrated debut in 1990, the most epic Christmas album ever in 1994 (see above), 2001's Glitter fiasco and her acclaimed return to form with 2005's The Emancipation of Mimi.
Her latest release was back in 2014, an album with the grammatically experimental title Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse, but this 2018 tour is focused on showcasing her many #1 hits.
