The Adventures of Mimi was a 2006 concert tour of arenas by American R&B singer-songwriter Mariah Carey. It was one of a few tours in her then-sixteen-year career and was named after a fan’s “Carey-centric” diary of the same name. The bus tour started in late July and ended in October, with two stops in Africa, twenty-five stops in the United States, seven in Canada, and seven in Asia. At the end of 2006, the tour placed 24th on Pollstar’s “Top 100 Tours”, earning $27.9 million with 32 shows from the North American leg.
Unlike her previous tour, three years prior, Carey started this tour 16 months after the release of her latest album, the successful The Emancipation of Mimi. She had initially not wanted to tour, dreading the long travel times and not needing one to promote Mimi. But after requests from fans to appear in concert, she decided to do so to celebrate one of the best times in her career.
Similar to the past tour, Carey gave her fans the chance to submit their ideas for set lists and for the title of the tour. Her long-time musical partner and American Idol judge Randy Jackson joined her tour as the musical director, although he did not often appear at shows due to concurrent Idol auditions.
During the tour, Carey revamped her image as a performer, performing remixes of her songs, dancing along a bit with her dancers, having guests onstage, and going into the middle of each arena onto a checkerboard B-stage to perform “Fantasy,” “Always Be My Baby” and “Don’t Forget About Us.” (The B stage had become an increasing popular way for large-venue performers to get closer to their audience ever since U2 introduced it on their 1992 Zoo TV Tour.) The main stage was a two-level affair, with the band situated on the lower level, backed by strands of glittering material, and a staircase between the two. Carey’s “MC” logo was present in several places.

Once again, Carey invited her long-time friend and back-up singer Trey Lorenz to sing “I’ll Be There” and “One Sweet Day” with her and perform several songs on his own during one of her costume changes. Except for an occasional guest appearance, raps on her songs were the pre-recorded originals, with the rapper shown on the video screens.
During breaks in the tour, Carey reportedly was continuing to write and develop concept ideas, and possibly record, for a new album. At her August 15 show in Montreal, Carey reportedly had a wardrobe malfunction. She was singing on the B-stage and suddenly, in her own words, “the twins” almost came out of her top.
Throughout the tour, there were some canceled dates due to poor ticket sales, including one such show that was canceled for Hong Kong. In regards to the Hong Kong incident, tour manager Benny Medina stated 8,000 tickets had been sold and blamed the cancellation on the promoter’s failure to pay Carey the money that was due to her. “If there were only 10 people in this venue, and this particular promoter … had fulfilled his contractual obligations, we would be there. Mariah Carey loves her fans in Southeast Asia,” Medina said. “He has defaulted several times, right up into the last 48 hours. Literally we tried to hang in there with this guy.” The promoter, however, stated the show had to be canceled as 4,000 tickets were actually sold, and “unreasonable demands” were being made by Carey.
