Fans go wild as Mariah announces she's playing Blackpool |
Mariah Carey's fans couldn't contain their delight when she confirmed she'd be headlining a festival in Blackpool later this year. The superstar singer is taking a break from her Las Vegas residency to appear at the seaside town's Livewire event in August.

Some of her loyal followers were astounded she'd leave Sin City for the bright lights of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, but in recent years the town has been given a boost. Last year Will Smith launched the festival and performed alongside his former co-star Jazzy Jeff. And now the lure of the crowds - and possibly the chance to have a wild ride on The Big One - has tempted Mariah into signing on the dotted line.

Mariah's fans could barely contain their excitement at their favourite star coming over to the UK. Councillor Gillian Campbell, deputy leader of Blackpool Council, said of the news: "This is absolutely fantastic news and we are thrilled at the prospect of Mariah Carey performing live in Blackpool. She is a world-class artist and this promises to be another sensational Livewire event over the August Bank Holiday weekend."

Mariah is one of the best-selling artists of all time, having sold more than 200 million records worldwide across her nearly 30-year career.

In April, the event suffered a blow as country music star Kenny Rogers was forced to pull out of his Saturday headline slot due to ill health. But now they've got Mariah on board, the organisers don't have anything to worry about. Hundreds of her loyal followers shared hilarious memes of their reaction to hearing the news.
