Mariah Carey has signed on as a resident headliner at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The singer made the announcement on Thursday (January 15) and will launch her concert series on May 6.
According to Caesars Entertainment, Carey will perform all 18 of her number one hits, including "Vision of Love," "Hero," "Fantasy," and "We Belong Together."
"I have so many ideas for the show that I'm currently working on and am excited to perform all of my number one singles together for the first time and others that are very close to my heart. My songs are the soundtrack of my life and I can't wait to share them with my fans on stage," the singer said via a statement.
Dates for the first 18 shows have been announced; they run through July 26.
Carey is filling in for Celine Dion, who put her Colosseum show on an "indefinite" hold last year after it was announced that her husband Rene Angelil was fighting cancer.
