Early last year, Celine announced her three-year residency and return to The Colosseum, the world-renowned venue where she was the first to grace its stage. When her first show A New Day… opened on March 25, 2003, it went on to not only become one of the most successful shows in Las Vegas but also redefined the entertainment industry; Celine would become the first artist at the height of her career to stop touring and invite fans to come to her. By the time the show closed on December 15, 2007, more than 3 million fans spanning all seven continents and 138 countries had seen the show.

So that’s how it all started. Here’s what to expect now…

With the assistance of legendary Grammy Awards Producer Ken Ehrlich, a stage filled with 31 musicians, consisting of a full orchestra and band, Celine Dion is back behind the microphone at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
