Mariah Carey to do residency in Las Vegas, celebrates with free tickets for fans

Mega-star Mariah Carey was on The Ellen Show on Thursday morning, where she announced she will be doing something completely new this year. A musical residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Daruis Fisher, a Mariah Carey fan, looks forward to attending, as evident on his Vine account.  A residency that will see Mariah regularly performing live at the iconic venue, and singing some of the number one songs she has never performed live before.

Carey told Ellen Degeneres she is incredibly excited about the residency, and really hopes fans will enjoy it.

To celebrate her Caesars Palace residency, Mariah also went to Las Vegas, dressed as a chamber maid, and surprised several fans who were being interviewed about Mariah Carey being the artist they wanted to see perform live in Las Vegas the most.

The singer sneaked into their hotel room dressed as a chamber maid, shouted “Housekeeping”, and then waited for the fans’ reactions. Needless to say, they were all beyond shocked but ecstatic to finally meet her. Free tickets to her upcoming show seemed to make them even happier.

Mariah Carey, of course, is not the only popular singer to have a residency in Vegas. Others have included Celine Dion, Bette Midler, Cher, Carlos Santana, Shania Twain and Guns N’ Roses.

In fact, a residency in Las Vegas seems now to be the icing on the cake for many of today’s top stars.
