What I like is con­tact with the au­di­ence

Evening Times - - TIMES OUT: YOUR GUIDE TO GLASGOW - BY STACEY MULLEN

MU­SIC leg­end Ce­line Dion has ad­mit­ted she has but­ter­flies about her new tour Courage which comes to the Hy­dro next year.

The Cana­dian songstress,

51, will play the city venue on Septem­ber 11 and 12 for a sec­ond time.

Ce­line best known for hits Think Twice and My Heart Will Go On pre­vi­ously wowed fans at the Hy­dro in 2017, and now the new show will fea­ture songs from lat­est re­lease Courage.

“I have but­ter­flies just talk­ing about it be­cause a new record — a new show — is quite big,” she said.

She added: “There’s a lot of work be­hind that, a lot of peo­ple in­volved, a lot of pas­sion, a lot of ded­i­ca­tion.

“A lot of hours were put be­hind ev­ery de­tail be­cause what we want is for as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble, even though we all know that we can’t please ev­ery­one,but be­tween you and me, what I want, is to please ev­ery­one. Is it pos­si­ble? Well, I don’t know. But I got an al­bum, and I got a new tour, it’s called Courage, and I hope you’re go­ing to love it as much as I do.”

The su­per­star will tour the world with the new show vis­it­ing Canada and the US be­fore con­certs in Europe and the Mid­dle East next year. It is her big­gest tour in al­most a decade.

She said: “I’m very very ex­cited about this tour.

“I’m not scared, I’m an­tic­i­pat­ing it in a way of ex­cite­ment be­cause I love tour­ing.

“I love to record be­cause you can do many takes if you’re not happy. But what I like about tour­ing as well, is the con­tact with the au­di­ence.”

She added: “I want to im­press them as much as I can. I want to have fun. I want them to love the show. I want them to love the al­bum and the songs. And of course, I’ll sing the songs that, hope­fully, they want to hear that I’ve recorded be­fore.

“Un­for­tu­nately, I won’t be able to sing all of them, be­cause of the longevity of my ca­reer, but I hope I can please as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble. So, yes I do have but­ter­flies, but be­cause I’m very very ner­vous, but an­tic­i­pat­ing to go on stage. It’s go­ing to be so fun.

“And the stage is go­ing to be amaz­ing.”
