Put it in your diary Mariah fans: Wednesday October 10 will be ‘One Sweet Day’ because the pop icon will be performing in Melbourne. Her tour will see Carey performing some of the hits that made her one of the world’s biggest selling female artists of all time, such as ‘We Belong Together’, ‘Hero’ and ‘Vision of Love’.
After beginning her career while still a teenager Carey quickly rose to prominence thanks to her incredible five-octave vocal range and songwriting ability (she wrote almost all of her number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 charts). She’s now sold over 220 million records and been awarded several Grammys and American Music Awards.
With next year marking 30 years (!) since Carey started working in the music industry, there’s no better way to celebrate her sultry voice than by watching her perform live. Originally Carey was sheduled to play on February 9 but had to reschedule due to her tour expanding. Melbourne, make your ‘Fantasy’ come true and catch her at Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday October 10.
