Charmbracelet World Tour: An Intimate Evening with Mariah Carey

Charmbracelet World Tour: An Intimate Evening with Mariah Carey was the name of Mariah Carey's 2003-2004 worldwide concert tour. It takes its name from Carey's 2002 album Charmbracelet, which had been released six months earlier.

History

This was Carey's first tour since her 2000 Rainbow Tour. Overall it was Carey's fifth tour and her most extensive, lasting for sixty-one shows over eight months. Carey's previous tours had been restricted to a few European countries, Japan, and the United States in 1993 and 2000, usually consisting of very few shows. The Charmbracelet World Tour, on the other hand, was truly a world tour, playing many places in East Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East.

The long-running length of the tour had actually not been planned. After the initial stretch of the tour, Carey decided to add additional dates. For the new dates, she performed a more condensed show, cutting off several songs from the setlist and performing new songs in their place with Christmas elements during seasonal periods. Fans praised Carey for being in excellent voice the entire tour and Carey has claimed that the tour prepared her voice to record her next album The Emancipation of Mimi.

Carey's sexual image also generated some controversy during the tour. In various countries, she was often criticised for her choice of dress, and a Pan-Islamic youth leader attempted to have her banned from performing in Malaysia. Carey opted to wear jeans and a tank top for the entire Malaysian concert.

According to Billboard and All Business, the tour grossed $30 million worldwide. The 36 international dates grossed 40% more revenue ($17.5 million) than the 33 US dates ($12.5 million).

The tour of some Asian countries were either rescheduled or canceled due to a respiratory disease known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. The tour in Singapore was canceled, and the tour in Korea was rescheduled.

Set list

Carey's website asked fans to design and submit set lists for the show, though the songs Carey ended up performing differed from their preferences. A second poll was then introduced asking fans to vote for one of three songs: "Can't Take That Away (Mariah's Theme)" won for almost every night of the tour, "One Sweet Day" won a few times, and "Love Takes Time" never won.
