Mariah Carey Cancels Australian Tour, Fans React Accordingly
Spare a thought for Aussie Mariah Carey fans this morning, as the songstress has just announced that she's canning her upcoming Australian and New Zealand tour dates.
The Grammy-winner was set to perform four shows -- three in Aus and one in NZ -- in October on her #1's Tour. However, all dates have been cancelled due to a "scheduling conflict."
Carey confirmed the sad news this week via her touring company MJR. A statement released read:
"Today it is announced that Mariah Carey’s upcoming tour dates in Australia & New Zealand during October 2018 will be cancelled due to a scheduling conflict. New dates for the areas are yet to be determined."
The statement included a personal message from Mimi herself, who said that she regretted not being able to head Down Under, but promised to "find new dates soon".
The 48-year-old went on to say that she's been working on new music that she "cannot wait to share" later this year.
Looks like no one in this country will be getting engaged on stage, then. Oh well.
Aussie fans are understandably unhappy that the "I'll Be There" singer will not, in fact, be there.
It's another blow for fans following Carey's announcement back in December last year that her original February 2018 tour dates were being pushed back eight months.
The rescheduled tour was reported to be bigger and better than ever, but in reality, Carey's fourth Australian show in Perth was removed from the bill.
Ticket holders can expect to receive full refunds according to an official statement from Ticketek.
