Celine Dion Tour 2016: An overview
A Celine Dion tour is scheduled for 2016, the timeless icon of soul, is continuing her tenure at the Colosseum of Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas in 2016. Since her first show set of six hundred under the headline “A New Day” in early 2002, Celine has become a staple of the location, with overwhelming success over the past decade and more, until her unfortunate hiatus in 2014 to take care of her ill husband. She has performed for hundreds of thousands during that time, enchanting attendees with both classics and new songs alike, all delivered in her majestic voice: “Absolutely extra-human”, “Like an iron fist in a velvet glove”, wrote Jeff Miers and Jim Santella of the Buffalo News.
Her impact on the industry goes far beyond her already impressive musical catalog and artistic legacy. She is regarded as the revolutionary who changed the face of the Las Vegas entertainment scene, for before she started “A New Day”, it was very uncommon for performing artists to stay in one place. Yet, by the power of her starhood, she proved that the best and brightest had another option – to tour in place, letting their fans come to them.
Director Stephen Brown had this to say of her influence on the economic scene: “Bigger than Elvis, Sinatra and Liberace put together? Definitely.” As the pioneer, her shows were not to be missed, and absolutely worth the travel to see.
This makes her return all the more momentous: in August 2015, she announced that she would be returning, and starting from 6 January 2016, you too can be part of this resurgence.
Celine Dion will continue performing every Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at the Colosseum, until 4 June – sixty-three shows in total. She will then transition to a brief European stint – on 20 and 21 June (Monday, Tuesday), she will perform at the Sportpaleis, in Antwerp, Belgium. The next leg of the tour is in AccorHotels Arena in Paris, France, on pairs of the 24th and 25th, 28th and 29th, and the 2nd and 3rd of July.
Finally, the rest of 2016 will see Celine Dion touring in her home country of Canada. For the first half of the month of August, she will be performing at Centre Bell in Montreal. Once again, she will perform in two-day stints: the 31st of July and 1st of August, the 4th and 5th, 8th and 9th, 12th and 13th, and 16th and 17th. She will proceed to Centre Videotron in Quebec for just one week: the 20th and 21st of August, and the 24th and 25th.
