Concert to take place on the 21st of August in Barretos

It has been confirmed that the North American super star Mariah Carey will be performing at 55th BARRETOS RODEO, the biggest of its kind in Latin America.  the concert will take place on Saturday, August 21on the main stage of the Rodeo Arena. The rodeo will take place from August 19 - 29.

Mariah Carey has made an indelible impact on the global music industry and audiences everywhere as the best-selling female artist of all time whose eighteen #1 singles rival all but The Beatles. As a singer and songwriter, Ms. Carey has been recognized with five Grammy Awards, nine 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 was named one of Rolling Stone’s select “100 best artists of all time” list,  to name a few accolades.

The fifty thousand capacity arena will stage Mariah’s super production as it is her only scheduled show in Brazil for the year and will mark her second time performing in the country.


International Concerts

Mariah Carey’s performance retakes a tradition of the Barretos Rodeo of having an international concert during the event, which has had Shakira (1995), Garth Brooks (1998), Alan Jackson (1999), Reba McEntire (2000) and A-HA (2001).  The event hasn't had an international concert since A-HA.

“We have been dreaming of an international concert for almost a decade and now we are returning with one of the biggest names of music in the world”, says the President of the Barretos Rodeo, Marcos Murta.

In addition to Mariah Carey's concert, the Barretos Rodeo will have over 100 national concerts during the 11 days of the event, which includes a national and international rodeo.
