It isn't truly Christmas until you hear All I Want For Christmas Is You, and Mariah has some concerts planned.

The queen of the festive season will perform two shows over the festive period.

Sadly you'll need to travel to the US to see her perform as there are no UK dates, but fans hope this might change.

Mariah announced the news on Monday.

It comes after she revealed she will release a "lost" rock album she recorded.

Her new revue is called Merry Christmas To All, and she will be performing at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada on 11th December and New York's Madison Square Garden on 13th December.

"It's almost time NEW YORK + TORONTO!! Come celebrate Christmas with me this December! lil' excited lil' excited to be back on stage and get festive with everybody!!" she wrote.

If you happen to be in the area on those dates or as a die-hard Mariah fan will be willing to travel, then the tickets go on sale on 28th October.

Prepare to sing along and wear your best festive outfit.

When purchasing tickets, fan can also buy an exclusive T-shirt and copy of Mariah's book, The Christmas Princess.

The fairy tale story is officially released on November 1st.

We'll have to wait and see if she manages to take the top spot in the charts with her festive classic again too, breaking further records.

Last year Carey tried to register the term “Queen of Christmas” as a trademark.

She faced resistance from Darlene Love and Elizabeth Chan over the move.

Carey said: “That was other people, and I just want to humbly say that I don’t consider myself that. I’m someone that loves Christmas, that happened to be blessed to write ‘All I want For Christmas Is You.’ And a lot of other Christmas songs. And let’s face it, you know, everybody’s faith is what it is. But to me, [the Virgin] Mary is the Queen of Christmas.”
