Mariah Carey Is Going to Do Christmas Shows at the Beacon in NYC


Here she comes! Miss Mariah Carey is going to do four shows at the Beacon Theater in New York for Christmas. The shows are December 15, 16, 18, and 20. They’re tied to the 20th anniversary of her Xmas hit “All I Want for Christmas is You.” The shows are billed as holiday extravaganzas, but you know Mariah will be singing her hits. Her “lambily” will go crazy otherwise. Tickets go on sale November 10th. Mariah just wrapped a month of sold out shows in Asia where she had one bad night followed by a dozen or more good ones. The Beacon is just right for her– not too big but big enough. You can also imagine the party atmosphere of lots of different versions of that song, and people on stage rocking out to it. Go, Mariah! Maybe this will become an annual tradition.
