Celine Dion announces return to The Colosseum

After taking a break from her headlining show at Caesars Palace, Celine Dion announced today that she will be returning to The Colosseum on Thursday, Aug. 27, 2015 to continue her Vegas residency, “Celine.”

“I am excited to finally tell my fans I am coming back to Caesars Palace,” Dion said, explaining that it was her husband Rene’s wish that she return to Las Vegas after she had spent her time away caring for him as he battles cancer.

“While my family will always be my priority, my fans are just as important to me. I look forward to performing again for all of you starting August 27th, and more importantly having Rene there with me. Thank you for giving me this time I needed to spend with my family.”

Twelve years ago today marks the decorated singer’s first performance in The Colosseum – a venue where she has since performed 927 power-packed shows.

Trading one desert for another, I moved to Las Vegas from Arizona nearly three years ago. It was something about the sparkling lights and the all-encompassing entertainment factor that persuaded me to swap cacti for casinos and dry heat for well…even drier heat. And while I do love a good show, I will always keep true to my country girl ways seeing that I am an absolute sucker for a good country concert and will always indulge the opportunity to go out country dancing! But in a city that undoubtedly has some of the world’s best cuisine, a wild assortment of endless experiences, and of course phenomenal shows, Vegas certainly has that unparalleled good time vibe that can make a city slicker out of just about anyone… including myself!
