Celine Cashing Out Of Vegas To Tour New Album

By David Farrell

The world’s best-selling female recording act is cashing in her Las Vegas chips and embarking on a 55-show concert tour that includes 10 Canadian shows with two apiece in Montreal and Quebec City.


The Courage World Tour's opening dates are at Quebec City’s Videotron Centre on Sept. 18 and 20. Her final residency show at Caesars Palace Colosseum is June 8, marking the end of 16 years of performing in Las Vegas. In July, she headlines a massive outdoor concert at Hyde Park in London.

The announcement of the tour and the Courage album was made in person by the 51-year-old singer at a by-invitation event at the Ace Hotel Theater in L.A. on Wednesday evening. The announcement was live-streamed on Facebook.

When asked what Courage meant to her, L'Oreal's new global icon stated that it was about finding her “inner strength” and a way for her to “keep going.”

Courage is Dion’s 12th English-language studio album and her 27th overall. Her total album sales are pegged at 150 million, dwarfing her wardrobe that includes 500 pairs of shoes.

It is expected to have its release concurrent with the tour in September, although one or more singles will be released beforehand.

Tickets for the tour go on sale to the general public on April 12 at 10 a.m. ET.

And here’s Celine announcing her upcoming tour and album across several videos.
