It was one of a few tours in her then-sixteen-year career and was named after a fan's "Carey-centric" diary of the same name. Unlike her previous tourthree years prior, Carey started this tour 16 months after the release of her latest album, the successful The Emancipation of Mimi. She had initially not wanted to tour, dreading the long travel times and not needing one to promote Mimi. But after requests from fans to appear in concert, she decided to do so to celebrate one of the best times in her career.
Similar to the past tour, Carey gave her fans the Behind-The-Scenes - Mariah Carey - The Adventures Of Mimi (DVD) to submit their ideas for set lists and for the title of the tour. Her long-time musical partner and Washington Square - Counting Crows - Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings Idol judge Randy Jackson joined her tour as the musical director, although he did not often appear at shows due to concurrent Idol auditions.
During the Behind-The-Scenes - Mariah Carey - The Adventures Of Mimi (DVD), Carey revamped her image as a performer, performing remixes of her songs, dancing along a bit with her dancers, having guests onstage, and going into the middle of each arena onto a checkerboard B-stage to perform " Fantasy ", " Always Be My Baby " and " Don't Forget About Us.
The main stage was a two-level affair, with the band situated on the lower level, backed by strands of glittering material, and a staircase between the two. Carey's "MC" logo was present in several places. Once again, Carey invited her long-time friend and back-up singer Trey Lorenz to sing " I'll Be There " and " One Sweet Day " with her and perform several songs on his own during one of her costume changes.
Except for an occasional guest appearance, raps on her songs were the pre-recorded originals, with the rapper shown on the video screens. Reviews of the tour were generally positive. Most critics celebrated Carey's transformation from a pop star to a full-fledged hip hop artist. They also praised her vocal performances saying that was the main attraction of the spectacle. Some critics commented on the short length of the show, especially given that she was offstage for several breaks while undergoing costume changes,   while others felt Carey was trying too hard to make the public like her, especially in terms of the "rollercoaster" metaphor she used to begin the show.
Indeed, Carey held a pre-concert taping there, in order to include fans, regulate the lighting, and review other technical aspects in preparation for the night's actual concert recording. The resulting DVD, called The Adventures of Mimiwas released over a year later, beginning in Europe on November 19,with releases in other regions of the world coming over the following two weeks.
