Mariah Carey Cancels Several Of Her Christmas Concerts Due To Illness
‘Doctor’s orders!’ Mariah Carey just canceled the first few shows of her ‘All I Want For Christmas’ tour due to an illness, she announced on Twitter on Nov. 15. Is she okay? Find out, here.
This is the worst news EVER. Mariah Carey, who pretty much released the most famous Christmas song ever, was just forced to cancel several of her upcoming holiday concerts from her All I Want For Christmas Is You tour due to illness. “Lambs! Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, it seems I’ve received a present of my own; a lovely upper respiratory infection after last week’s flu. Bleak!” she tweeted on Wednesday, Nov. 15. “You know there is nothing I love more than celebrating the holidays with my festive Christmas show, but I have to take my Doctor’s orders and rest until he says I can sing on stage. Until then, unfortunately, I have to cancel the first several shows of my upcoming Christmas tour. I’m going to do all I can so that I can see you soon!”
The 47-year-old singer was supposed to kick off her Christmas concerts in Windsor, Ontario, in Canada on Friday (Nov. 17) followed by concerts in Chicago on Saturday (Nov. 18) and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on Sunday (Nov. 19), but obviously, those will no longer be happening. It’s not yet clear how many shows will be canceled altogether, however, as her official website is not yet showing any changes. Sadly, this doesn’t sound good for those who bought tickets.
This news comes after Mariah missed the LA premiere of her new animated movie, The Star, due to “an upset stomach”. It also comes after a report claimed the singer had gastric sleeve surgery to help her lose weight. Could this new illness be a side effect of her rumored surgery? Regardless, we hope she gets better soon!
