(Dec. 11, 2009 New York, NY) For Mariah Carey‘s legions of North American fans, the long wait is over as the interna tional superstar announces her first major tour itinerary in over three years. Following a festive New Year’s Eve kick-off at Madison Square Garden in New York City, the “Angels Advocate” Tour begins January 2, 2010, at the Borgata in Atlantic City, and wraps up February 27th at The Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Honey B. Fly, the official Mariah Carey Fan Club, will be offering exclusive member pre-sales for all show dates. Fans can get details on the official website, MariahCarey.com. Tickets for the majority of the tour will go on sale December 19th.
The 8-week, 19-city “Angels Advocate” Tour is the first major tour by Mariah Carey since The “Adventures of Mimi: The Voice, The Hits, The Tour” of August through October 2006. The opening act on the “Angels Advocate” Tour will be RydazNrtist, a new R&B group signed to Nick Cannon’s NCredible Entertainment.
MEMOIRS OF AN IMPERFECT ANGEL, Mariah Carey’s 12th studio album, follows her multi-platinum E=MC” (2008), and her worldwide 10 million selling The Emancipation Of Mimi (2005). The Emancipation Of Mimi generated three Grammy awards (including Best Contemp orary R&B Album), two #1 singles, and countless more honors during its 18-month chart stay. Soundscan’s biggest-selling album of 2005, Mimi featured “We Belong Together” (Grammy winner for Best Female R&B Vocal and Best R&B Song) and “Don’t Forget About Us,” Mariah’s 16th and 17th #1 career singles respectively. Three years later, “Touch My Body” (from E=MC”) became her 18th #1 Hot 100 hit, surpassing Elvis Presley’s previous record of 17 #1 Hits. Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist in the 50 years of the Hot 100 (which began in 1958) with the potential to surpass the Beatles’ all-time high of 20 #1 hits. The success of E=MC” brought total sales of Mariah’s albums, singles and videos to more than 175 million worldwide, distancing her even further from the pack as the top-selling female recording artist in history.
