Mariah Carey Will Earn $500,000 for Debut Israel Concert

Mariah Carey reportedly will make $500,000 for her first concert in Israel.

Tickets for the American pop star’s August performance in Tel Aviv are going for about $65 and up, TMZ reported, noting that was “pretty affordable for Mariah standards.”

The concert comes less than two months after Carey made her first visit to Israel — with her boyfriend, James Packer, an Australian businessman who reportedly is a friend of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The couple had a “pre-engagement spiritual meeting” with an unnamed religious leader meant to advise them on whether or not to marry.

Carey, whose 18 No. 1 singles are the most in the history of the Billboard charts, is the resident performer at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
