Earlier, we hinted that mega star Mariah Carey might just make her way to our shores as part of her “Me. I Am Mariah” 2014 concert tour. Until now, it still is all just hearsay as no organisers have confirmed that she’ll be coming to Malaysia.
However, The Star reported today that a Malaysian concert promoter has won the price-bidding war to have Mariah Carey perform here. And not just stage a concert here, but to perform here first ahead of her concerts in Singapore and the Philippines. By the way, Mariah Carey’s asking price is not less than US$1mil (RM3.2mil), which was what she was paid the last time she came here, in 2004.
The Star also cited an industry source who declined to be named, who confirmed that a newcomer in the Malaysian concert circuit has secured a mega deal amid cut-throat competition. “KL will be her first stop – even though Singapore is unhappy with her management’s decision to have her show in the island republic two days after KL,” the source said.
Mariah Carey will do a show in China before heading to our shores, if in fact the above rumour is true. We’re still waiting for more details to be announced. Meanwhile, check out Mariah’s “Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse” via Spotify because, well, because you love her:
Don’t forget! Public ticket sales for Mariah Carey’s “Me. I Am Mariah” 2014 concert tour in Singapore will start on 4th August. Deets here.
