Mariah Carey is returning for another Las Vegas residency this summer, and music fans can get tickets to her new spectacular through AXS beginning this Friday, May 4 at 10 a.m. local time.

Carey announced on Monday via social media that she will return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace for "The Butterfly Returns," currently scheduled to run from July 5 through September 10, 2018. She will perform six shows in July, one in August and five in September, with the Caesars Palace official website promising a "more intimate" show than Carey's previous residency that ended last year.

That residency, called "Number 1 to Infinity," was Carey's first residency project and spanned 50 shows between 2015 and 2017. It was a financial success for the singer, with Billboard Boxscore estimating it pulled in almost $24 million dollars in ticket sales even though Carey had to reduce the final run of shows from nine concerts to six shows due to her touring commitments. The residency also included an impressive grand entrance by the singer, which you can watch by playing the video above.

Monday's announcement did not provide details on what music fans can expect to hear in "The Butterfly Returns," but where her previous Las Vegas stint was comprised of Carey's biggest hits, this new residency could conceivably open up her entire catalog and let audiences hear songs that they haven't enjoyed live before. Whatever Carey has on her new set list, it's another opportunity for pop enthusiasts to hear one of the most high-profile voices of this generation, in one of Las Vegas's best concert venues. Don't miss your chance to see one of the biggest music events of the summer.

With this new residency, Carey returns to an all-star lineup of music stars in residence at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Elton John concludes his residency in May, while Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, and Reba McEntire all have current residences at the venue.
