Mariah Carey bringing All I Want For Christmas Is You concert to the UK

The elusive chanteuse will play two extra-festive dates in the UK this December.

We won't ask for much this Christmas, there is just one thing we need… and Mariah is only too happy to deliver!

We'll be getting extra-festive this December as Mariah Carey prepares to bring her Christmas-themed show to the UK for the very first time. Mariah has performed a series of concerts at New York's Beacon Theatre since 2013, but the All I Want For Christmas Is You shows have never been staged outside the city before.

The All I Want For Christmas Is You Concert will stop off in Manchester Arena on Sunday December 10, 2017, before heading off for a night at the O2 Arena on Monday December 11 – the only European dates.

The setlist is still under wraps, but is expected to take in festive classics from Mariah's 1993 Merry Christmas album and its 2010 follow-up Merry Christmas II You, along with several highlights from Mimi's extensive back catalogue. Mariah's only million-selling single, which just so happens to be *that* Christmas song, is certain to feature!

Previous incarnations of the show have seen guest performers including John Legend and R Kelly take to the stage with Mariah, so we could be in for a few surprises.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 8, on Ticketmaster.

Meanwhile, Mariah fans not willing to wait until December for their Mimi fix can start celebrating – it's been confirmed that the dtar's reality show Mariah's World will be broadcast in the UK exclusively on Freeview – airing on 4Music at 9pm on Thursday, 14th September.
