Uh-oh, it’s only the first week of Mariah’s Las Vegas residency and she’s already canceled a concert! The last-minute cancellation was per her doctor’s orders, but fans were still SUPER upset about it. Read some of their angry reactions from social media!
Las Vegas is already getting the best of Mariah Carey! It’s only the singer’s first week of her residency at Caesars Palace, and she’s already come down with bronchitis. Unfortunately, the illness forced her to cancel her May 13 concert, and the super last minute announcement has really upset some fans. Check out their reactions!
Mariah Carey Cancels Concert At Last Minute — Upset Fans Explode On Twitter
Poor Mariah! The singer’s doctor put her on vocal rest due to her case of bronchitis, meaning she wasn’t able to perform the May 13 show of her Las Vegas residency. Unfortunately, the cancellation was announced with very little notice for those who were planning to attend.
“Hey guys..I’ve been fighting bronchitis for the past few days.. almost better but on mandatory vocal rest per doctor’s orders. I’m so sorry to cancel tonight’s show but I promise to make it up to you!!! Love you always, MC,” the pop diva wrote on Instagram.
Although fans are obviously hoping Mariah gets better soon, many were angered and upset at the way this situation was handled…and they took to social media to rant about it.
“Wow! Typically, she’s already canceling…. First week into this,” one follower commented on the Instagram photo. “When I used to follow her, she was ALWAYS late. Sometimes up to 2 hours late, to appear! By then, people would be upset. We get it…she is a diva. But last minute canceling shows no regard for people. The fans feelings are just not priority. Honestly, I wouldn’t go out of my way to see her show. I’ve followed her for years, met her 3 times. The voice isn’t really what it was. The music is NOT the same, to say the least. I don’t buy any of her new stuff. There’s really no way to compensate for those who have spent in airfare, hotel, just to see the show. Sorry guys… It has to be very disappointing.”

They made no attempt to inform tonight’s audience ahead of time of the @MariahCarey cancelation. A lot of angry folks. Not even a tweet. Wtf

It’s been a bit of a rough start for Mariah — beginning immediately after she announced her plans for a residency back in January. Ticket sales have been less than stellar, and on the show’s opening night May 7, the singer had a major wardrobe malfunction!
Wearing a coral satin gown, Mariah squatted down to belt out one of her famous tracks, but accidentally flashed her underwear in the process! Luckily, she was wearing some pretty panties, which featured sparkling embellishments that matched her ensemble. Because of course she was…
But Mariah’s been at this for quite some time, and finished the performance flawlessly.
We hope Mariah is feeling better soon and that her fans who missed the concert are able to catch another show in the future!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Mariah’s fans have a right to be angry about this?
