Mariah Carey Cancels Christmas Show Dates Due to Upper Respiratory Infection

Mariah Carey has canceled the “first several shows” of her Christmas concert tour on doctor’s orders after she was diagnosed with a “lovely upper respiratory infection.”

The “All I Want for Christmas Is You” singer announced the cancellation on Twitter, stating that she had previously been suffering from the flu.

“Lambs! Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, it seems I’ve received a present of my own; a lovely upper respiratory infection after last week’s flu. Bleak!” she wrote.

“You know there is nothing I love more than celebrating the holidays with my festive Christmas show, but I have to take my Doctor’s orders and rest until he says I can sing on stage,” she continued. “Until then, unfortunately, I have to cancel the first several shows of my upcoming Christmas tour. I’m going to do all that I can so that I can see you soon!”

Carey recently parted ways with her manager of three years, Stella Bulochnikov, though the two are still partners on several business ventures. The singer also encased her hands and feet in cement in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre, and contributed a track entitled “The Star” for the soundtrack of the nativity film of the same name.
