Carey to appear at Virgin store

November 11, 2005|Geoff Boucher

If your evening commute takes you by the Hollywood & Highland shopping hub you may want to start planning an alternate route for next Tuesday; pop star Mariah Carey, one of the hottest stars in music this year, is setting up a table at the complex's new Virgin Records Megastore to meet fans and sign copies of her hit CD.

Carey's "Emancipation of Mimi" has sold 3.7 million copies in the U.S. since its release in April, and its hit "Shake It Off," with its message of resilience, has been a metaphor for Carey's comeback to the pop music fore.

On Tuesday, the Virgin Records recording artist will be at the new 20,000-square-foot Virgin store to draw attention to a new "platinum edition" repackaging with four additional tracks. It is also available with a tie-in DVD.
