CELINE DION BEGINS MOMENTOUS RETURN TO THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE

Due to Overwhelming Ticket Demand, December and January Shows On-Sale as of Saturday, March 19

LAS VEGAS, March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Celine Dion is at the microphone. Legendary Grammy Awards Producer Ken Ehrlich is the director at the helm. A stage filled with 31 musicians, consisting of a full orchestra and band, is playing. And thousands of fans from around the world are flocking to Las Vegas to be amongst the first to see Celine’s anticipated return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The first run of shows in March has already sold out; June through August summer performances are going fast. To keep up with ticket demand, an additional 16 shows scheduled between Dec. 28 through Jan. 22, 2012 are on-sale as of Saturday, March 19 at 10 a.m. (PST).

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.

Celine’s brand new show includes her biggest hits mixed with timeless classics and pays tribute to some of the most celebrated songs and artists of all time. The glamorous show features a full orchestra and band and is set to a visually stunning presentation designed exclusively for the 4,300 seat state-of-the-art venue.
