Mariah Carey announced on Friday that she’s cancelled three more shows due to ongoing health issues. She recently postponed her first several shows for All I Want for Christmas Is You Tour last week citing upper respiratory infection as the cause.

The original schedule was Nov. 17 but now the tour will officially kicks off on Dec. 2 in New York City.

“I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones; it’s certainly nice to remember what we are grateful for! Like most, I’m thankful for my overall health… for which I need a bit more time to get right. Doctors have ordered a few extra days of rest before I can finally fly to New York and take the stage for my Christmas Tour,” the pop diva shared on Instagram.

“While this news disappoints me to share, I am grateful to be on the mend and for the support from all of you – it means the world to me! See you from the stage soon darlings! Mariah,” she concluded.

E! News reports that refunds will be available to those who bought tickets for Carey’s concerts on Nov. 27, 28 and Dec. 1. Mariah’s Christmas Tour will include three performances at the Beacon Theatre in NYC, followed by Paris, Manchester and London, and end with a five-show run in Las Vegas.
