In their biggest entertainment coup yet, Jupiters Hotel & Casino will start 2013 on the ultimate high note presenting one of the best-selling female artists of all time, Mariah Carey, in association with UAE at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on Tuesday January 1, 2013.
The exclusive New Year’s Day event will be the first of only two Australian stops for the superstar, as she brings her “MARIAH CAREY LIVE” show to the Gold Coast for her first ever concert on the Glitter Strip and her first tour Down Under in 14 years.
It has been two years since Mariah Carey has wowed audiences from the stage and she has chosen the Gold Coast’s home of entertainment, Jupiters Hotel & Casino, to present her first performance back.
While it may seem like a lot of “firsts” for the singer/songwriter/producer, Mariah Carey has well and truly established her status as an icon of the music industry with over 200 million album sales throughout her career which spans more than two decades.
Mariah Carey will deliver a dose of diva, belting out some of her biggest hits including “We Belong Together”, “Dream Lover” and “Fantasy”, with exciting support acts to be announced.
Jupiters Hotel & Casino Managing Director, Aaron Gomes, said the property was beyond thrilled to be able to bring Mariah Carey to the Gold Coast as the perfect way to celebrate the end of what has been an entertainment-packed year, and the start of an even brighter year ahead.
“It has been a stellar year of entertainment at Jupiters Hotel & Casino with the opening of our new $20 million redeveloped theatre, two spectacular stage shows and an enviable line-up of the biggest international and national acts,” Mr Gomes said.
“High-profile artists are an essential component of the tourism offering for the Gold Coast and we are thrilled to be supporting the destination as a must-see holiday hot spot this festive season with Human Nature coming over from Las Vegas to perform two Christmas concerts in Jupiters Theatre and now Mariah Carey on New Year’s Day at our sister-property across the footbridge.
“We remain committed to elevating the Gold Coast’s reputation as an entertainment mecca and Mariah Carey will certainly take our offering to the next level and carry on a tremendous year of coups for the property and the region.”
Mariah Carey exploded onto the music charts in 1990 with her self-titled debut album boasting an extraordinary four #1 singles, followed by the 1993 release of her most commercially successful album, “Music Box”, selling an astounding 30 million copies.
Renowned for her five-octave vocal range, Mariah Carey became the second artist in history and the first female performer to have a song debut at #1 with smash-hit single “Fantasy”.
Her collaboration with Boyz II Men, “One Sweet Day”, was dubbed “90’s Song Of The Decade” and remains the longest-running #1 song in US chart history with a record 16 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100.
She also surpassed the long-standing record for most #1 singles by a solo artist, held by Elvis Presley, with her 18th Billboard #1 hit, “Touch My Body”.
Mariah’s long list of accolades includes five Grammy Awards, 17 World Music Awards, 11 American Music Awards, an Academy Award for “Best Original Song” and 31 Billboard Music Awards, including honours for Billboard’s “Artist of the Decade”, the World Music Award for “World’s Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium” and BMI’s “Icon Award” just to name a few.
Today, the “songbird supreme” continues to define the modern pop performance, recently releasing the lead single from her forthcoming album, “Triumphant”.
