Mariah Carey had a vision of a packed house when she signed on to continue her residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and that’s exactly what the artist will get — no matter what it takes!
In meetings with casino executives, it was decided some tickets for all of 49-year-old Carey’s eight dates in February will be given out free to select people so that the venue is guaranteed to be “sold out,” a source told gossip writer A.J. Benza in his Fame column, exclusively on RadarOnline.com.
“Every high roller and whale who’s flying into Vegas is being given free tickets to her show,” claimed the source. “They’re being handed out at sports books, included in room service bills and slipped under doors all over the hotel.”
While Carey’s reps denied the story, the source insisted: “That’s why she wanted a residency and not a tour — because she’s not selling out like she used to.”
