"It's happening!" Dion says of the upcoming three-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, where she ended a five-year run of sold-out shows in 2007. "Great songs, great lyrics. I think it's going to be very touching."
Backed by 31 musicians, Dion's new show will feature "all the songs from my repertoire that people want to hear," along with a selection of music from classic Hollywood films, she says. "I just love the big orchestra and the beautiful black-and-white movies and romance."
Tickets for the show go on sale on Friday and we've already received an email alert from AEG Live/Ticketmaster reminding us to get our tickets. Never mind, that Celine's first show is THIRTEEN MONTHS AWAY.
In the meantime, Dion and husband/manager René Angélil have other business to attend to – the task of getting the “My Heart Will Go On” songstress knocked up. People is reporting that Dion has struggled with fertility and hopes that a fifth round with IVF is a charm. If all goes as planned, 9-year-old son René-Charles will have a little sis or bro by the time the 2011 show kicks off.
