Mariah Carey to play UK festival exclusive in Blackpool

Mariah Carey has announced that she’ll be performing a UK festival exclusive this year at LiveWire.

Running from 23-26 August at Blackpool, London, this year is set to be the event’s sophomore edition and it’ll see the festival expand from a three-day celebration to cover four in total. Carey will headline the event on Friday 24.

Last year, LiveWire made its debut which saw Will Smith reunite with DJ Jazzy Jeff on stage, for which they performed new material that saw them head into a different direction – together, the pair tried their hand at EDM.

Carey’s last run of headline shows was 2016’s Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour. In July, she’ll play a string of shows at Las Vegas’ Colosseum.
