Viva Las Vegas: Celine
Celine Dion to return to Vegas in 2011 with new show,
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Celine Dion is returning to Caesars Palace with a glitzy new stage show inspired by the romance of classic Hollywood movies.
The music diva says she’ll return to The Colosseum in March 2011 for a three-year residency.
Dion says in a release that the show will feature a full orchestra and band with 31 musicians.
She also says it will offer a mix of timeless Hollywood classics, along with fan favourites.
Dion returns to the Vegas venue three years after a celebrated five-year run of sold-out shows there.
It was followed by a year-long worldwide tour in 2008-2009, in which she vis- ited five continents and 25 countries. Dion’s new Vegas show will premiere March 15, 2011.
“I’m coming back home to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and I’m very excited about it,” Dion said Wednesday in a release.
“ With the orchestra and the band we’re going to be able to perform our songs like never before. The repertoire is going to be extraordinary ... a mix of timeless Hollywood classics, along with all the favourites that my fans like to hear me sing. It’s going to be a very beautiful show, and I think we’ll be raising the bar higher than we’ve ever done before. There’ll be some truly wonderful moments ... I can’t wait!”
Tickets for performances from March 15 through Aug. 14, 2011 go on sale Friday and range in price from $55 to $250, not including taxes and fees.
A film based on Dion’s Taking Chances World Tour, Celine: Through the Eyes of the World, hits theatres Wednesday ——— On the Net: www.celineinvegas.com
