Those who own or rent real estate in the Gold Coast may be excited to learn that the well-known diva Mariah Carey will be performing at Jupiters Casino  on New Year's Day.

The 43-year-old singing superstar will, according to News Limited,be bringing her family with her on her first trip down under since 1998.

Promoter Mark Rafter told the Herald Sun that her tour dates during the New Year are the only time she could commit to doing so because of her full diary.

He said: "Mariah's got a very busy schedule with her American Idol commitments; this is the only time she could come out.

''She has to head back to the States right after the Australian shows to do Idol".
