Mariah's Diva Demands

 
Mariah's Diva Demands

27 October 2006

R&B Queen Mariah Carey's scheduled Hong Kong concert has been cancelled by the promoter due to bad ticket sales and excessive demands made by the diva!

The promoter's statement reads as follows:
"As promoters of the Mariah Carey Hong Kong concert, we have decided to cancel the event effective immediately due to both the poor response of public ticket sales and also due to specific last-minute demands which we find wholly unreasonable and not with the best interests of Hong Kong, us and also the fans," the statement said.

The promoter, Concerts Asia also said that they had only sold 4,000 tickets to the event despite a "substantial" ad campaign.

But Mariah's manager Benny Medina has hit back, saying that 8,000 tickets were actually sold and the problem had more to do with them not being money she was owed.

"(If) this particular promoter ... had fulfilled his contractual obligations, we would be there. Mariah Carey loves her fans in Southeast Asia," Medina said. "He has defaulted several times, right up into the last 48 hours. Literally we tried to hang in there with this guy."

No word yet on the what Mariah's demands were!
