Mariah Carey will extend her #1s Tour with a five-date visit to Australia and New Zealand early next year. 

The forthcoming run starts Feb. 1 at Auckland’s Spark Arena and takes advantage of Australia’s predictably excellent summer weather with outdoor dates in Brisbane (Sandstone Point Hotel, Feb. 3), Melbourne (Melbourne Showgrounds, Feb. 9) and Sydney (Parramatta Park, Feb. 10) and includes a single arena show in Perth (Perth Arena, Feb. 5). 

According to reps, Carey will play hits from across her career, including "Hero," "One Sweet Day," "Fantasy," "Always Be My Baby," "Vision of Love," "We Belong Together" and more. The ticket onsale starts 9:00 AM AEDT on Oct 23 via Mjrpresents.com.

The February 2018 shows will be the diva's first in these parts since her Elusive Chanteuse winery and arena trek back in November 2014, though she did make the long haul in 2015 for a private New Year’s Eve performance at Melbourne's Crown Casino.

Carey last graced Australia’s albums chart with Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse, her 14th studio set which bowed at No. 5 in May 2014. It was her 13th top ten appearance on the ARIA Albums Chart and the first since Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel flew to No. 6 in October 2009.
