FOR THE first time in three years, Mariah Carey hits the road! “The Adventures of Mimi: The Voice, The Hits, The Tour” is the most elaborate concert production of her career and it’s at the MGM Garden Arena Saturday, Sept. 20. The Emancipation of Mimi album won three Grammys, went platinum six times and contained her 16th and 17th career No. 1 singles (to tie Elvis’s record of 17 No. 1’s). No word from Uncle Tom Moffatt if Hawaii is on the 30-city tour!
