Mariah Carey is reportedly struggling to sell tickets for her UK Christmas tour, as half of them are still on sale with just days to go according to The Mirror.

A source told the publication that it has been a 'real struggle' for the iconic pop princess to fill the venues on her European tour, which will include shows in Nottingham, Leeds and London.

The publication also claimed that Ticketmaster still had more than half of the tickets for the 13,500-capacity First Direct Arena in Leeds available for purchase, just hours before Mariah is set to take to the stage.

There is also reportedly more availability for Tuesday’ show at London’s O2 Arena, with prices ranging from £23 to £142.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Mariah and Ticketmaster for comment.

Mariah of course has become a staple of the Christmas music season, thanks to get iconic song All I Want For Christmas Is You, which she wrote and produced early in her career. 

It hit the number one spot on the Billboard's Holiday Digital Songs, Holiday Hot 100 and Holiday Streaming Songs charts.

Mariah has been performing shows all around Europe to celebrate her Christmas music legacy, and has also recently released a festive album to mark the occasion

However Mariah hit a career speed bump last year when her docu-series Mariah's World was axed after just one season.

In an open letter her ex-husband Tommy Mottola said in an open letter published by the New York Times' Page Six: 'She should hire more seasoned and respected professionals to help her with her career.'

But regardless sources have also told The Mirror that Mariah has had a 'brilliant 2018' and hopes to make a return to the UK very soon.
