Celine Dion's new Vegas residency
Celine Dion has signed up for a new three year residency in Las Vegas.
The 'Think Twice' singer will perform 70 shows a year for the next three years, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace after signing a multi-million dollar deal.
Celine said: "It's happening! Great songs, great lyrics. I think it's going to be very touching."
The Canadian songstress will be backed by 31 musicians for the shows, which include a special section where she performs songs from people's favourite movies.
Celine added the set will feature: "All the songs from my repertoire that people want to hear, And I just love the big orchestra and the beautiful black-and-white movies and romance."
Celine most recently finished a five year run of shows at the same venue in 2007.
The singer's announcement comes a day after Barbra Streisland turned down a £100 million offer to appear in the desert city.
Celine said she is to juggle the performances with caring for her 9-year-old son Rene-Charles by her husband and manager Rene Angelil, and the couple are presently trying to get pregnant for a second baby.
Celine's last run of concerts grossed more than $400 million.
The 'My Heart Will Go On' singer will start the residency in March next year.Posted on 11 Feb 2010 07:30 to category : Music News
