Mariah Carey – the best-selling female artist of all time, and ultimate gay icon – revealed this morning that she will be performing in Dublin in the 3Arena on May 22 2019. The Dublin date will be the first stop on the superstar’s European leg of the Caution World Tour.
Mariah’s European ‘lambily’ will be delighted with the newly announced dates. The songstress has also announced performance dates in Paris, Hamburg, Aalborg, Barcelona, Bordeaux and Amsterdam. Additionally, the skinny legend has secured a three-day residency in the Albert Hall in London.
Tickets for the Dublin date, as well as the European leg of Mariah’s Caution World Tour, go on sale this Friday, February 8 at 9 am both online and at Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.
Members of the Honey B. Fly – Mariah’s official fan club community – all have access to pre-sale codes. Since 10 am this morning the Honey B. Fly crew have had first access to tickets, as well as the exclusive Honey B. Fly live pass which grants access to a subscription to the official Mariah Carey newsletter, special offers, contests and promotions.
The queen herself shared the exciting news with her fans on Twitter this morning. She wrote:
