Mariah Carey still isn’t healthy enough to embark on her X-mas tour.

After pulling the plug on the first several shows on her All I Want For Christmas Is You Tour just last week, the singer announced Friday that she’s cancelled three more concerts due to ongoing health concerns, citing upper respiratory infection as the cause. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Carey admitted to not feeling so well.

According to the original scheduling, the tour should have kicked off on November 17, however, Carey will now officially take the stage December 2 in New York City.

The singer took to social media to announce the news to her fans.

“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.” Carey continued, “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.”
