Vegas is a magical place, and it seems once it gets its hooks into you, it doesn’t let go – especially if you’re a diva. Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion and even CHER have had long-running residencies in Sin City and keep coming back for more. Heck, even long time Vegas standard Barry Manilow is coming back for yet another residency. You can now add Mariah Carey to this ever-growing list of performers who can’t leave Las Vegas.
The 48-year-old chanteuse wrapped up her “Mariah #1 to Infinity,” show last year, after a two-year run. She also did an annual holiday residency, “All I Want for Christmas Is You, a Night of Joy and Festivity” from December 2014 to December 2017 and in 2009, she did four intimate shows at The Pearl at The Palms. Mariah announced via Twitter on Monday that she is heading back to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace for a new show, titled The Butterfly Returns. This new residency kicks off on July 5th and runs select dates through September.
I’m thrilled to be returning to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with a BRAND NEW residency, THE BUTTERFLY RETURNS, beginning July 5th! Fan Club presale starts Tue 5/1 before the public on sale this Friday at 10am PT! For tickets & all dates visit https://t.co/OHpG7pZ7iY! ❤ 🦋 pic.twitter.com/n0Xv3lXSK3

In addition to the Vegas shows, Mariah is scheduled to take her “The Number 1s” tour through Australia, New Zealand and Asia. On these upcoming shows, Mariah may also be introducing some new songs, as she is currently working on a new album. She shared a photo from the recording studio on Instagram on Sunday.
I’m not a huge fan of her music, but I’m rooting for Mariah, especially after she revealed that she has been suffering from bipolar disorder and could be facing a lawsuit from her former manager. It’s nice to hear some good news from Camp Mariah for a change, and I’m sure her fans are delighted to have the chance to once again see her on the glitzy Vegas stage. As for me, I’m saving up to see Barry and Cher again.
