Mariah Carey - Friday 24th August

Mariah Carey to  Headline Livewire Festival on Friday 24th August!

Mariah Carey, the best-selling female artist of all time, has chosen Blackpool’s LIVEWIRE Festival for her only UK 2018 festival appearance. The pop superstar, who has sold more than 200 million albums to date, will headline the Friday night slot of the festival.

LIVEWIRE Festival may only be in its second year but it has already left its stamp on the UK Festival circuit, generating worldwide headlines following Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff’s first UK performance to a sold out 20,000 capacity crowd. 

Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold to date and 18 Billboard Hot 100 #1 singles (17 self-penned), more than any solo artist in history. Mariah is a singer/song­writer/producer recognized with multiple Grammy Awards, 21 American Music Awards, Billboard's "Artist of the Decade" Award, the World Music Award for "World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium," and BMI's "Icon Award" for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few – with her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Mariah is truly the template of the modern pop performance. Mariah's ongoing impact has transcended the music industry to leave an indelible imprint upon the world at large.  She made her entry into the world of independent film with her landmark performance in "WiseGirls" starring alongside Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino and Melora Walters.

In 2009, Mariah was recognized with the Breakthrough Performance Award at the Palm Spring International Film Festival for her critically acclaimed role in Lee Daniels' "Precious." Mariah went on to appear in Daniels' stellar ensemble piece "The Butler" (2013). A Congressional Award recipient, Mariah has generously donated her time and energy to a range of philanthropic causes near to her heart including Save the Music, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, World Hunger Relief, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation, among many others. A tremendous supporter of children's charities, both domestic and international, Mariah founded Camp Mariah in partnership with the Fresh Air Fund, a retreat for inner city children to explore career development.  Mariah is represented by Roc Nation, UTA and Imprint PR.

Fans of 80s and 90s pop rejoice! Boyz II Men & Matt Goss have been confirmed to appear at Livewire Festival at Blackpool's Tower Festival Headland on Thursday 23rd August, their only UK shows in 2018.

"Boyz II Men and Matt Goss are the first of a fantastic line up for that will be revealed over the next few weeks.”

Kenny Rogers - Saturday 25th August - CANCELLED

Kenny Rogers - Saturday 25th August - The Dealin's Done

Kenny Rogers has been working through a series of health challenges. His doctors fully expect the outcome to be great, but they have advised him to cancel all performances through the end of the year to focus on recuperation.

Consequently, the Kenny Rogers performance on Saturday 25 August 2018 at Livewire Festival in Blackpool is being cancelled.

"I didn't want to take forever to retire," Rogers said. "I've thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to say farewell to the fans over the course of the past two years on 'The Gambler's Last Deal' tour. I could never properly thank them for the encouragement and support they've given me throughout my career and the happiness I've experienced as a result of that."

Livewire expect to announce a replacement artist very soon. Tickets for the Saturday night will be valid for the new line up. Alternatively refunds will be available at point of purchase.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for understanding.
