DOYENNE of the divas Mariah Carey has confirmed her first Australian tour in 15 years and will arrive here in just over a month.

Confidential can exclusively reveal the new American Idol judge will ring in the New Year in Sydney, with a concert at Allphones Arena on January 3.

One of the highest-selling female artists of all time - moving more than 200 million albums across her 20 year career - the 43-year-old New Yorker has promised her return to Oz will please patient fans.

After all, she hasn't staged a local tour since her Butterfly world tour in 1998, which featured a cameo from Olivia Newton-John for a Hopelessly Devoted To You duet.

"It's going to be a very high-production show, featuring all her greatest hits and some of her Christmas songs," concert promoter Mark Rafter from Retfar Entertainment said.
