The 8-week, 19-city “Angels Advocate” Tour is the first major tour by Mariah Carey since The “Adventures of Mimi: The Voice, The Hits, The Tour” of August through October 2006. The opening act on the “Angels Advocate” Tour will be RydazNrtist, a new R&B group signed to Nick Cannon’s NCredible Entertainment.
MEMOIRS OF AN IMPERFECT ANGEL, Mariah Carey’s 12th studio album, follows her multi-platinum E=MC2 (2008), and her worldwide 10 million selling The Emancipation Of Mimi (2005). The Emancipation Of Mimi generated three Grammy awards (including Best Contemporary R&B Album), two #1 singles, and countless more honors during its 18-month chart stay. Soundscan’s biggest-selling album of 2005, Mimi featured “We Belong Together” (Grammy winner for Best Female R&B Vocal and Best R&B Song) and “Don’t Forget About Us,” Mariah’s 16th and 17th #1 career singles respectively. Three years later, “Touch My Body” (from E=MC2) became her 18th #1 Hot 100 hit, surpassing Elvis Presley’s previous record of 17 #1 Hot 100 Hits. Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist in the 50 years of the Hot 100 (which began in 1958) with the potential to surpass the Beatles’ all-time high of 20 #1 hits. The success of E=MC2 brought total sales of Mariah’s albums, singles and videos to more than 175 million worldwide, distancing her even further from the pack as the top-selling female recording artist in history.
Mariah Carey’s Gibson Amphitheatre performance is being produced by Alan Haymon Productions in association with Live Nation.
