It’s sad for those fans to lose out on the live shows..
but from a “glass half full” perspective, I’m glad if the album is out around then, that she and her label can give it their fullest focus and dedication. This was a concern for me with all of those tours coming up.

Scared because cancelling twice isn't a good look and is very Lauryn Hill of her to do. Hope this doesn't affect her touring rep, cause it already isn't the best.

Yikes... this is what I was fearing. Maybe this will really pressure her into completing the album this year.

I don’t imagine it will urge people to buy tickets.. might be a smaller venue tour :cry:

True, some fans are angry about the cancellation. :-?

She should release a snippet of her new single to appease the fans. As a peace offering? :oops:

She can still be in the fans' good graces if she launch a B-side/deep cuts concert. Probablywith fewer dates and smaller venues so it would feel more intimate to the fans. :lol:

I think she should release the album by November. Hype it to the people attending the concert, so that many will buy the album. And can she do an amazing music video with her amazing music? I was honestly amazed with recent videos or artists because the visual is really gorgeous.

And a smaller venue tour would be ideal for her now. It'll be a more intimate show, and it would actually make sense. Why book a venue and fill it half way?

Maybe she should release the album after xmas and do a proper world tour to promote the album in 2019 right after its release. The timing of these random dates make no sense to me.

She can release music anytime.

With music sales declining, the bulk of her income will come from live performance - she should be harnessing that and making up for lost years, not cancelling shows for a 2nd time.

Album sales are dead and always were in Q1. So if this album is to have any semblance of a chance at gaining some sales, it needs to be out Q4 this year where Mariah is at the peak of her visibility. Otherwise it’s a guaranteed bomb.

So yes, sad for the fans that these shows were cancelled but they should have been scrapped the first time they were moved earlier in the year. I get they probably thought she might be able to fit everything in. But when Mariah starts recording, time goes out the window.

From a general fan perspective, it’s more important that she gets an album out. It’s been too long and she’s been touring constantly since 2014. I agree, any tour for 2019 should be used to support the album though.

But people is wasting money in flights and hotels. That's the point.

Tbh, the cancellation of those four shows only gives her an additional week. In all honesty, that shouldn't affect any sort of album roll out plans since she should be doing album promotion in Australia anyway. Unless, of course, there is some sort of award show or big performance that grounds her in the United States during those dates.

She'll need to make up her touring reputation in the country and I can just sense the unease of the Asiapac fans who may now feel their shows are under threat too.

Anyway, these are just rumors, we’ll see
@skywalker

I still believe lead single in either Aug or Sept, new album in Nov
You’re welcome @gunman6 :wink:

At least the booking fee will also be refunded. She can throw a bonus track to places where she cancelled a concert as well as in Japan for being super loyal.

Were the shows cancelled because these were agreements tied to Stella or something else? They should have cancelled even before they announced the new dates. It makes her management looked very unorganized. Scheduling issues my ass this was a legend they were managing.

Maybe she cancelled to start the new era and then go back to touring with new music. I wonder how they planned the rollout
Will Mariah announce new music coming weeks before? Or will she wait until last moment to do it?
