The Elusive Chanteuse Show: Mariah Carey Sets World Tour Launch For October

Mariah Carey's world tour is a go! The award-winning chanteuse has just announced the launch of her anticipated world tour, which has been dubbed "The Elusive Chanteuse Show."

"The Elusive Chanteuse Show will launch with two dates in Japan, a favorite stop for Carey, where she holds the title of the best selling international artist with over 20 million albums sold," Carey's team announced Sunday. "Mariah’s ‘Chanteuse’ will play 12 exclusive dates in Asia starting October 4, 2014, including the superstar’s first ever visit to mainland China."

Carey’s set list will be a mix of her biggest hits, fan-favorite album cuts, never-before-performed selections from her #1 R&B Album “Me. I am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse” and many more surprises!

“I want to experience the spontaneity and emotion that I put into this album on stage with my fans,” says Carey. “I can’t stop writing songs so don’t be surprised if you hear a brand new song that I just wrote the night before the show in your city!”

Mariah Carey is a true music icon and the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 220 million albums sold to date and 18 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles (17 self-penned) including 'Fantasy', 'Always Be My Baby', 'Hero', 'Touch My Body', 'One Sweet Day', and 'We Belong Together' – more than any solo artist in history.

With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Mariah has defined the modern pop performance. As a singer/ songwriter/ producer, she has been recognized with multiple Grammy Awards, 21 American Music Awards, Billboard's “Artist of the Decade” Award, the World Music Award for “World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium,” and BMI's “Icon Award” for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few.
