Mariah Carey to play Christmas show in Madrid

Pop superstar Mariah Carey takes to the stage in Madrid on 17 December as the final stop on the European leg of her 2018 ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You Tour’.

The US singer-songwriter has been performing an annual Christmas show in New York since 2014 and in 2017 brought it to Europe for the first time for a three-date run.

This year, she returned with an extended number of dates, which started in Norway on 1 December and later stops that included Germany, France, England and now Spain. The concert is a large-scale affair featuring a gospel choir, carol singers, acrobats, child performers and even an appearance from Santa Claus.

Carey has long been associated with Christmas, having released her first festive album, Merry Christmas, in 1994.

It featured her hugely successful single ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’, which she wrote and produced with Walter Afanasieff.

That album has become the biggest-selling Christmas record of all time. In 2010, Carey released its follow-up, Merry Christmas II You, which was her 13th studio album.
