The superstar Mariah Carey will perform the legendary season closing concert at the high profile luxury ski resort of Ischgl, in the Austrian Tirol on Monday 30 April, it was announced today.
Andreas Streibl, Ischgl’s tourist office director said: “We are proud and excited to announce this exceptional star for the closing concert of this exceptional winter season. Mariah Carey has a distinctive and powerful voice, which is perfect for the Top Of The Mountain concert”.
Ischgl’s Top Of The Mountain concerts at the beginning and end of every ski season have become legendary for the big name stars they feature, including The Killers, Elton John, Kylie Minogue, Pink, Alicia Keys and Tina Turner. The 2011-12 season was opened by Swedish pop duo Roxette at the end of November.
Mariah Carey will perform on the specially constructed open air stage at 2320m at Idalp, the ski hub area of Ischgl in the Paznaun Valley, and is expected to draw a crowd of 20,000 skiers, boarders and fans.
She will be taking the crowd on a journey back through time, exploring her musical history over the past 20 years with hits such as Hero, Heartbreaker, Touch My Body, Someday and My All.
