Mariah Carey announces European tour

Mariah Carey has announced dates for a spring 2016 tour of Europe.

The “Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour” opens in Glasgow, Scotland on March 15, with shows scheduled to end April 23 in Amsterdam before two concerts in South Africa in early May.

A presale for Carey’s official online fan community, Honey B. Fly, will begin on December 15.

Tickets for the South African shows will be available December 17 at 9am local time, the Copenhagen date on sale starts December 17 at 10am local, and seats for the rest of the European concerts will go on general sale from 9am on Friday December 18.

"I'm calling it the Sweet, Sweet Fantasy tour,” Carey tells Lorraine. “I wanted to give people some nostalgia - so that title is from my song Fantasy obviously. The fans can expect lots of songs - I'm going to research what songs were big in what territories and then I'm going to sing those songs especially for those fans.

"I'm just trying to put on a really good show that people are going to enjoy and be close to the fans. Not everyone is so close to their fans but I have a very special relationship with my fans. I love all things pertaining to music and creativity ... everything is fun for me but I love being on stage."

The shows will follow the end of Carey’s Las Vegas residency at Caesar’s Palace and mark the singer’s first European tour since 2003.
