US pop singer Mariah Carey will return to Manila for a concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum this October 26, her first in the country since 2014, she announced on Friday. 

It is part of her "The #1's" tour, where she is expected to perform all of her chart-toppers, and is only one of the two legs in Southeast Asia so far, according to her website. 

The tour will begin in Australia on October 7 and will also hold stops in Japan and Indonesia. 

Carey's music career began 28 years ago, when she burst into the scene with her self-titled debut album. She went on to become one of the most successful female artists of the decade, thanks to hits like "Emotions," "Without You," and "One Sweet Day." 

She has a total of 18 US Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers -- the last one being "Touch My Body" in 2008 -- good for a record second place behind only The Beatles, which has 20 in the chart's near 60-year history. 

Tickets for Carey's Manila concert will go on sale on April 20, with prices expected to be announced at an earlier date.
