Mariah Carey is heading to Australia for a rare coast-to-coast tour.

The pop diva’s Elusive Chanteuse Show is scheduled to make seven stops Down Under, where she’ll play arenas and a pair of exclusive winery dates.

Mariah’s Aussie trek starts Nov. 2 at Sandalford Estate in Perth, then moves on to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Rochford Wines in the Yarra Valley and wraps-up Nov. 16 at Sirromet Wines on Mt Cotton, south east of Brisbane.

It’ll be Mariah’s first national Australian run since her Butterfly world tour visited here in 1998, though she did play three shows on the east coast in January 2013.

General admission is priced at Australian $109.90 ($98.60) plus booking fee, and tickets at the top-end (platinum) cost Australian $259.90 ($233) plus booking fee. Tickets for all shows go on sale Sept. 26, and pre-sales open Sept. 24 at the official websites for Live Nation and A Day On The Green.

Mariah’s latest album Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse, her 14th studio album, debuted at No. 5 on the ARIA Albums Chart in May. It was her 13th top ten appearance on the Australian chart, and her first since Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel back in October 2009.
