On the one hand here, a rare audience with the Queen is a legitimately invaluable experience. But on the other hand, holy balls the upcoming Mariah Carey tour is expensive as fuck.
Mimi’s recently announced #1s Tour of Australia and New Zealand has officially gone on sale as of this morning, and if you’re keen to get involved you’re gonna have to loosen the purse strings something fierce.
Tickets went on sale to the general public this morning, and the lowest price point – the absolute, bargain-basement, just-get-me-in-the-door tickets will still set you back a whopping $170 or there abouts.
The cheapest tickets. One hundred and seventy dollars.
Further still, in some stops on the tour that price point will only get a standing-room ticket with views that could well be at least partially obscured.
The Melbourne date on the tour is scheduled to be held at the Melbourne Showgrounds, with the stage and seating area taking priority.
The $170 tickets (or $159 + booking fee) will also only get you standing room GA spots in Queensland and Sydney. In Perth, being the only arena show on the tour, the cheapest ticket option is limited to a bare handful of rows at the rear of a mere six seating bays.
If you’re keen to get closer to the action, the seated tickets for all shows spike in price fairly quickly. “Gold” level seating costs a cool $225 per seat in total, while the closer “Platinum” seats will set you back somewhere in the vicinity of $260.
If you’re feeling particularly fancy and are in the mood for a seat in the first two rows, you’re looking at a price tag of a whopping $560 per seat.
Tickets are available to the general public right now, after previously going through a pre-sale open only to members of the Mimi fan club (which itself carries an extra USD$20 subscription fee).
If you’re feeling absolutely rich and are down to push on with your dream of seeing Mariah Carey belt out all her hits in a row (would, TBH), then you can suss ticketing details via her website here.
