The Butterfly Returns is an ongoing concert residency by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. It began on July 5, 2018, with performances on select dates through February 21, 2019. This is Carey's second concert residency placed in Las Vegas since the two-year #1 to Infinity, which began in 2015 and concluded in 2017. It includes songs from all of her albums except for Charmbracelet and Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
