On this day in 2006, Mariah Carey kicked off ‘The Adventures Of Mimi’ Tour, following the huge success of ‘The Emancipation of Mimi’ album, which sold over 10 million copies.
Mariah performed a total of 40 shows on the tour, covering Africa, North America and Asia. It became the most successful tour of her career.
Special guests included Boyz II Men at the Anaheim show, and Jay Z and P Diddy at the Madison Square Garden show.
The tour spawned a DVD/Blu-Ray release, which was certified Platinum.
Mariah’s Caesars Palace residency in Las Vegas, ‘The Butterfly Returns’, is currently underway and will continue through to September. She will also tour Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe later in the year. Head to http://www.mariahcarey.com/tour for dates and tickets.
