Five new dates have been announced for Mariah Carey’s The Butterfly Returns residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The new dates will run from Feb. 13 through Feb. 21, 2019.
This isn’t Carey’s first residency at the Las Vegas hotel. The superstar singer’s first was #1 to Infinity, which ran from 2015 to 2107. As the show’s name implied, the entire set list consisted of her No. 1 hits. For The Butterfly Returns residency, Carey has been performing songs from all of her albums except for Charmbracelet and Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. However, Carey recently revealed in an interview that she plans to change the residency's set list for the 2019 shows. "A lot of the fans who have come out to see it were really happy having a little more diversity. I want to make it really impromptu and surprise the people who have come out again and again to see the show."
The Butterfly Returns offers a more intimate performance, showcasing fan favorites such as "Honey," "Make It Happen," "Fantasy, "Vision of Love," "Emotions," "We Belong Together" and many more. Carey’s vocals are backed by a four-piece live band, three backup singers and seven incredible dancers.
The production also offers some surprises, including Mariah's two children, Monroe and Moroccan, who join her on stage during "Always Be My Baby," as well as audience members being invited to sit with Mariah on stage while she sings "Touch My Body."
In addition to her residency, Carey is also set to perform Sept. 21 at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival, which will take place Sept. 21-22 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
