NEW YORK, N.Y. - Mariah Carey is heading to Sin City.

Caesars Palace announced Thursday that the 44-year-old pop icon would open a series of shows May 16 at The Colosseum in Las Vegas. Carey has announced 18 performances, so far.

The show, dubbed "MARIAH CAREY #1s," will feature the singer performing her 18 No. 1 singles, which include "We Belong Together," ''Hero" and "Vision of Love." She is one of the all-time bestselling acts in music.

Carey's announcement came after a so-so year for the multiplatinum, Grammy-winning star. Her latest album, "Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse," was a commercial flop and she was criticized for her vocal performance during her recent tour.

Carey, a judge on "American Idol" for one season and the mother of 3-year-old twins, is following in the steps of Britney Spears, Celine Dion and Shania Twain, who have performed their worldwide hits at Vegas residences.

The Caesars subsidiary that owns and manages most of its casino-hotels, including Caesars Palace where Carey will be performing, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Thursday. The company's CEO said in a statement that its lineup of entertainers would continue to perform as scheduled and customers should expect no interruption.

Tickets for Carey's show — on sale now — range from $55 to $250. She will perform nine shows in May and nine shows in June.

Carey will also release a new edition of "#1's," her 1998 compilation album, this year. It will include some new music.
