It’s hard to believe that 25 years have passed since Mariah Carey’s iconic holiday album Merry Christmas was released. It took approximately eight months for Mariah to record the album that made its grand debut on October 28, 1994, and has been heralded as one of the best Christmas albums in history. The song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” continues to be one of the most requested holiday songs and this year, Mariah Carey is planning a special celebration for the album that turns 25-years-old.
Sharing an announcement with her 8.4 million Instagram followers, Mariah let it be known that she’s celebrating the 25th anniversary of Merry Christmas with a tour aptly titled “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Those who want to see Mariah Carey live on tour can get tickets beginning Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. ET. She’s also re-releasing the album on November 1, 2019, and people can purchase that on presale as well.
Mariah shared a video on Instagram where the gorgeous 49-year-old mother of twins shared the announcement by writing on her mirror with red lipstick. Her iconic butterfly ring was clearly visible.
Fans were thrilled by the news that Mariah is not only re-releasing Merry Christmas but also going on tour.
