Mariah Carey to bid farewell to Las Vegas in May

Mariah Carey will bow out of her Las Vegas residency in May (17) after unveiling her final run of shows.

The R&B superstar made Sin City her second home in May, 2015, when she launched her hits showcase, #1 to Infinity, and she wrapped up the fifth leg of her concerts at The Colosseum in Caesar's Palace on 11 September (16).

However, Mariah has announced fans will only get to see her in Vegas for one more set of dates, which will kick off on 26 April, 2017. The curtain will fall on #1 to Infinity for the final time on 13 May (17).

"Mariah is a phenomenal talent with ecstatic, global appeal," reads a statement issued by John Nelson, Senior Vice President of AEG Live Las Vegas. "We adore Mariah and are honored she has called The Colosseum home over the last two years. We look forward to working together again in the future."

By the end of the sixth leg of her residency, Mariah will have played a total of 53 shows.

The Hero hitmaker has only cancelled one performance to date, in May, 2015, after she was struck down with bronchitis.

Mariah is currently enjoying some downtime in Greece with her children, five-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, and her new fiance, billionaire businessman James Packer.

The musician and her loved ones were spotted arriving on the island of Mykonos last week (13Sep16), and she shared snaps of herself and Monroe posing on a jet ski over the weekend (17-18Sep16), while vacationing in Santorini.
