Carey didn't just perform for audiences in New York. Her concert was broadcast in Boston and Atlanta, where fans gathered to watch live simulcasts. In mid-May, Carey will jet off to the Middle East, performing a "private concert" in Dubai.
Her loyal fans have been breathlessly awaiting the follow-up to her 2005 album, "The Emancipation of Mimi." That album spent 18 months on the charts, sold 10 million copies worldwide and won three Grammy awards.
