Mariah's a hit with the Japanese

Monday 30 June 2003

Mariah Carey lost her shoe on stage Saturday night, but that's the only mistake so far in her Asian concert tour. I spoke to Mariah on Sunday morning around 9:15 a.m., which was either yesterday or today. I'm not sure because I hadn't had my coffee. But Mariah had just finished her show in Fukuoka and was glowing from the experience.
"The only problem was, I lost my shoe on stage during Honey," she reported. "I couldn't find it, so we just covered until I got off stage." Other than missing shoes, Carey says the Japanese tour is going great guns. Fans are singing along with her hits, too.
"They're singing along in Japanese and in English," she says. Carey's sales in the U.S. have been subpar of late, but in the Far East she is still an enormous sensation. Next up for the cleavage-obsessed diva is a three-night run at Tokyo's famous Budokan, plus several more shows in the country. She heads to her regular getaway on the Isle of Capri once she's done, then returns to the U.S. for a short tour of smaller theatres. Her first stop is Caesars Palace on July 26.
