CELINE DION ANNOUNCES HER RETURN TO THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE
The glamorous new show, directed by long time Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, features 31 musicians consisting of a full orchestra and band and includes Celine's biggest hits mixed with timeless classics and pays tribute to some of the most celebrated songs and artists of all time. The new show, which is receiving rave reviews by critics and fans alike, is set to a visually stunning presentation designed exclusively for the 4,300 seat state-of-the-art venue.
Dion had first gained international recognition in the 1980s by winning both the 1982 Yamaha World Popular Song Festival and the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest. Following a series of French albums in the early 1980s, she signed on to CBS Records Canada in 1986. During the 1990s, with the help of Angélil, she achieved worldwide fame after signing with Epic Records and releasing several English albums along with additional French albums, becoming one of the most successful artists in pop music history.
However, in 1999 at the height of her success, Dion announced a temporary retirement from entertainment in order to start a family and spend time with her husband, who had been diagnosed with cancer. She returned to the top of pop music in 2002 and signed a three-year (later extended to almost five years) contract to perform nightly in a five-star theatrical show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. Celine ended her run at Caesars in December 2008 to perform in a world-wide concert tour.
Dion's music has been influenced by genres ranging from rock and R&B to gospel and classical. While her releases have often received mixed critical reception, she is renowned for her technically skilled and powerful vocals. Dion is the best selling Canadian artist of all time; and her album D'eux is the best selling French-language album of all time. In 2004, after surpassing 175 million in album sales worldwide, she was presented with the Chopard Diamond Award at the World Music Awards for becoming the best selling female artist of all time. According to Sony Music, Dion has sold over 200 million albums, worldwide.
Hardest working woman in show business and one of the prettiest voices on earth.
We would love to see her, just once!
