Mariah Carey confirmed to play Brighton Pride as she signs six figure deal

Mariah Carey is confirmed to headline Pride festival in Brighton this summer and will pocket a six figure sum for the performance


Mariah Carey has been confirmed as one of the acts playing Brighton pride this August.

The music legend has reportedly signed a whopping six figure deal for the headline performance after it emerged she was in talks to close a deal last month.

She will be following in the footsteps of previous acts including Britney Spears and Kyle Minogue.

Mariah, 49, who has an estimated net worth of $300 million, will reportedly perform a 45 minute set.

A source told The Sun : “Mariah confirming for Brighton Pride is a huge coup for organisers who’ve been working on this deal for months.

“It’s taken a lot of negotiation but Mariah’s people have signed her up on a six figure deal.

“The organisers are so excited about having her there. She’s a huge draw and it’s going to be one hell of a performance.”

It will be Mariah’s first UK show outside of London since March 2016, when she brought her Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour to six UK arenas.

Mariah has made an iconic comeback in the past number of years, and is considered a pillar of the music, especially in the LGBT community, so there's no doubt she'll put on one hell of a show.

The All I Want For Christmas Is You singer holds three Guinness World Records for the song, including highest-charting holiday song on the US Hot 100 chart by a solo artist, most-streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours by a female and most weeks in the UK singles top ten chart for a Christmas song.

The singer, famed for her vocal range, signed with Columbia Records aged just 18 and her first album went on to achieve chart success with four number one singles.

She has since released 15 studio albums, seven compilation albums and a remix album as well as two EPs.

In 1999 she released her album Rainbow, in keeping with Pride’s LGBT colours, meaning she would be a good fit for the festival.

Aussie born Kylie Minogue gave an explosive set with her greatest hits at last years festival.

Kylie wowed a crowd of thousands with a flurry of costume changes and an energetic performance.

The audience was dazzled as she put on a show filled with favourites including Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, Spinning Around and I Should Be So Lucky.

While Britney kicked off 2018’s shenanigans with her Vegas show Piece Of Me.

The Toxic singer took to the stage in the UK for the first time since 2011 and fans felt it was worth the wait.

She performed a catalogue of her greatest hits to a sell-out crowd.
