Mariah Carey is still on the mend after calling off the first few shows of her All I Want for Christmas Tour due to illness. The singer, who canceled the original start of her tour earlier this month when diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection, has now canceled three of her upcoming shows in New York City.

She announced the news Friday (Nov. 24) that her Nov. 27 and 29 and Dec. 1 concerts at New York's Beacon Theatre will be canceled, while the Dec. 2, 4 and 5 engagements are still scheduled to go on. The trek is then set to travel to Europe and Las Vegas.

"I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones; it’s certainly nice to remember what we are grateful for!" Carey wrote. "Like most, I’m thankful for my overall health… for which I need a bit more time to get right. Doctors have ordered a few extra days of rest before I can finally fly to New York and take the stage for my Christmas Tour. While this news disappoints me to share, I am grateful to be on the mend and for the support from all of you - it means the world to me! See you from the stage soon darlings!"
