Mariah Carey announces new Las Vegas residency show

There’s no keeping this diva out of the spotlight. Mariah Carey announced her fourth Las Vegas residency show, The Butterfly Returns, on Monday.

Carey will occupy Caesars Palace Colosseum, the same site as two of her previous residencies, for The Butterfly Returns. She’ll kick off the newest residency July 5 and perform 11 additional nights through September. From there, Carey will jet off to Australia and Asia to commence her Number 1’s World Tour in early October, pushed back months from its original February scheduling.

The five-time Grammy winner recently wrapped up two other residency shows just last year: her holiday-centric All I Want For Christmas Is You, which split time between both Caesars Palace Colosseum and New York’s Beacon Theatre, and her Number 1 to Infinity show, which had been a Vegas staple since 2015. In addition to these projects, Carey spent the past two years on the road thanks to her 2016 Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour and last year’s co-headlining All The Hits Tour with Lionel Richie.

Her first residency, Live at the Pearl, ran for only four nights at the Palms Resort and Casino’s Pearl Concert Theater in 2009. Since then, she has dedicated more time to the Vegas demographic, albeit not as consistently as fellow pop stars like Celine Dion, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez. With Spears and Lopez ending their successful residencies at Planet Hollywood, there is now an opening for Carey to flex her muscles as one of the most popular performers on the Las Vegas strip.

Carey recently made headlines when she announced her battle with bipolar I disorder. She opened up to People magazine about her personal struggles surrounding the condition, and noted that despite being diagnosed in 2001, she only recently decided to seek treatment.

“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me,” she told People. “It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore. I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music.”
