If you haven’t visited Leeds before, then here is a pretty good reason to save the date – the queen of diva, Mariah Carey, will be coming to Yorkshire!

As part of her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” tour across Europe, the best-selling female artist of all time will be visiting six major UK cities for one night only. Tickets are now on sale for the tour, which will come to Leeds on 17th March 2016, a rare chance to catch the singer on her first UK tour since 2003.

The “All I Want For Christmas” singer’s tour has been inspired by her Las Vegas residency show, which will conclude at Caesar’s Palace in February and bring her unique glitz and glamour to Europe with chart toppers such as “Hero” and “We Belong Together”.
