The routing for Mariah Carey’s first world tour since 2006’s “The Adventures of Mimi” outing continues to grow. This week the super star announced a jaunt through Australia and her first ever show in New Zealand.

Attendees can expect a setlist packed with Carey’s biggest hits, fan-favorite album cuts and surprises. Of course, the songstress will also be showing off never-before-performed tracks from her latest LP, Me. I am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, which was released in May.

“I want to experience the spontaneity and emotion that I put into this album on stage with my fans,” Carey said. “I can’t stop writing songs so don’t be surprised if you hear a brand new song that I just wrote the night before the show in your city!”
