Cape Breton Post - - Arts focus -

Ce­line Dion to re­turn to Ve­gas in 2011 with new show,

three-year res­i­dency.

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.
