One of the most successful and widely respected female performers in music history, Céline’s return to Europe this summer will see her visiting cities that have not witnessed a performance from her since 2008’s “Taking Chances’’ World Tour, which became the second highest-grossing tour by a solo artist.
The CÉLINE DION LIVE 2017 Tour will feature an array of smash hits from her incredible 30 year career in music, which has produced over 250 million album sales, five Grammy Awards, two Academy Awards, seven American Music Awards, 20 Juno Awards (Canada) and an astonishing 40 Felix Awards (Quebec). In 2004, Céline received the Diamond award at the World Music Awards recognising her status as the best-selling female artist of all time. In 2007 she was honoured with the Legend Award at World Music Awards in recognition of her global success and outstanding contribution to the music industry, and 2016, she was presented with the prestigious ‘’Icon Award’’ at the Billboard Music Awards.
Céline commented: “I am so looking forward to returning to the UK and Europe this summer, these wonderful cities hold such special memories for me and I’m really excited to be coming back and seeing all my fans again.”
Céline is currently breaking records with her outstanding Las Vegas residency, which saw her reach an epic 1,000 performances in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in October 2016. Her first Las Vegas residency, A New Day…, was a groundbreaking production that was seen by over three million fans, spanning all seven continents and 138 countries.
After taking a three year break from Las Vegas, Céline made a triumphant return in 2011 with her second residency simply titled, Céline, which features an impressive 31-piece band and orchestra. Performances are ongoing with shows currently on sale through June 2017.
