I've actually had a thought that they are pretty similar musically. Lionel was doing these Pop ballads in the 80s but was pretty much considered R&B, kinda like Mariah doing the AC ballads in the 90s but essentially being an R&B artist.

Kinda weird to have Mariah as a "guest" on a tour. I think she is trying to connect with older audiences, which is really smart at this point. They still buy albums, and that's much more income than streaming. Also, she won't be able to cater to a younger audience forever, not even sure she would be able to releasing an album next year, for example.
Céline Dion is nowhere on the main single charts, but her new albums still sell millions of copies worldwide.

This is all very strange to me. I'm not mad at her for choosing an older act to tour with. I would find it super desperate if she chose to tour with someone like Bieber or Weeknd. But having her as an opening act? How cheap. She's not supposed to open for people. She will be mocked for that. Also, they don't have the same audiences. His fans are like 65+ Mariahs is 24-40. Very strange decision. But it definitely fits with Stella's "my only job is to make money" philosophy.

Not really. Her last few albums have only scrapped in at 1.5 million a piece. She herself hasn't been shifting decent album numbers since 2008.

Maybe its misreported. This isn't an official announcement after all. If she's gonna do this (and I think, again, Mariah is sliding in that kind of status where a joint tour is something I could see happening) then I'd like to see it as a proper joint effort and her not being some glorified warm up act.

Done. It sound like Mariah is a guest. Bit odd. She might as well have come in 50/50 on this.

But Mariah says "I'll be touring with.." not I'll be a guest on his tour. So that makes me think they are 50/50 on it.

Agreed. I like that she's trying to reconnect with fans but I'd love a new album. I am happy for US fans that they'll get some type of tour though.

The tour is officially listed on her Facebook events page as "with guest Mariah Carey". If she's 50/50 on the tour, she wouldn't be listed as a sidebar to Lionel, no?

Pretty much.

I don't know what to think about this mostly because I really feel Mariah needs to focus now on making the best Album she can and getting it out next year! Lionel Richie has some amazing songs and it be amazing for them to sing Endless Love together but that's where it ends for me. Mariah is still current enough to carry her own Tour! Coming out as a special guest to Endless Love would be amazing or maybe having him open for her Tour but other then that this seems like a waste of time on Mariah's Part.
