Twenty-one dates have been confirmed so far, with multiple shows in some cities.

Originally, the tour was slated to play arenas, but that plan was scrapped in May. According to the diva’s handlers, Carey has opted to play smaller venues because theatres give her the opportunity to be in a “more intimate environment” with her “lambs.”

“I am passionate about doing something more intimate for my fans,” she said. “I’m used to doing arena tours and for me this is a whole new experience. This is about my music and my fans.”

To prove her point, Carey is asking her fans for their input on the set list for the tour.

Vistors to her Web site ( can pick their favorite songs from an extensive list in hopes of hearing the tracks performed live in concert.

Tickets for the general public go on sale beginning June 21 and members of Honey B. Fly, her official fan club, will be able to get pre-sale tickets at an earlier date.
