(2011–19)

Celine is the second residency show by Canadian recording artist, Celine Dion.[1] The show is performed at the The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada beginning March 15th, with an estimated 70 performances per year.[2] The show ranked 26th in Pollstar's "Top 50 Worldwide Tour (Mid-Year)", earning over 20 million dollars.[3] Being seen by over 200,000 people, the show became the number one show in 2011 (for North America). The show has also made Dion the "most profitable music act in Las Vegas" since Elvis Presley.[4]

In March of 2013, René Angélil announced that Dion has extended her residency contract to 2019.[5]

Background

On March 15, 2011, Dion began a three year residency at A New Day.

Dion announced her Vegas comeback during an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Tickets went on sale that same week with extremely strong sales. The opening night show on March 15 was sold out within minutes.[6] Rehearsals started on January 17, in Florida and on February 17, 2011 in Caesars Palace when Dion moved back to Vegas to begin preparations for the new show.[7]

Additionally, it was reported in January 2011 that ticket sales for the show had already passed the $10 million mark, marking the fastest sale in the history of the venue. Caesars Palace President, Gary Selesner stated that the first lot of shows through April 17 will be completely sold out.[8]

Critical reception

For the show, Celine received many positive reviews from music critics. USA Today wrote, "Dion isn't here to perform. She's here to kill it. Again… she isn't aiming for applause. She's looking for rapture."[9] Las Vegas Sun wrote, "A magnificent masterpiece! Celine has single-handedly redefined class and elegance in onstage performances. Her voice is sent from the angels."[10] The Montreal Gazette wrote, "Dion magnificent in new Las Vegas show. One hell of a show!...Jaw-dropping... Grandiose, yet intimate…Pure entertainment of the highest order. Worth every penny!" [11] Toronto Star wrote, "Celine Dion's Vegas show more spectacular than ever! If her last show sold out for five years, this one should make it for ten." [12]

Setlist

It has been reported that as of December 30th 2013, Dion will start to incorporate songs from her new English Studio Album entitled "Loved Me Back To Life". Whilst the single "Loved Me Back To Life" was added to the set list from September 2013, the actual changes to the set list have not been announced.
