Celine Dion is ending her Las Vegas residency.
The 50-year-old singer has confirmed rumours she is to bring her concert series at Caesars’ Palace’s Colosseum to a close on June 8, 2019, 17 years after she first began performing regularly in Sin City.
Celine’s final run of shows will kick off on October 30 and she’s feeling “mixed emotions” about ending the current chapter in her career.
She said: “I definitely have mixed emotions about this final run. Las Vegas has become my home and performing at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace has been a big part of my life for the past two decades.
“It’s been an amazing experience and I’m so grateful to all the fans who have come to see us throughout the years. Every show we do at the Colosseum throughout this fall, and right up until the final one, will feel very special.”
The ‘My Heart Will Go On’ hitmaker – who has performed 1,089 shows since beginning her first residency, ‘A New Day’… in 2003 – has been praised for “changing the landscape of entertainment” in Las Vegas.
John Meglen, co-CEO of Concerts West/AEG Presents, said: “What an extraordinary part of our lives these shows have been.
“Celine took such a leap of faith, made such a big bet on Las Vegas when she decided to perform ‘A New Day…’ all those years ago.
“And look what she’s done … she has changed the landscape of entertainment in Las Vegas. What she started, as a crazy idea that didn’t make sense to a lot of people, has now become the norm.
“Now everyone wants to perform a residency in Las Vegas! All of us have Celine to thank for really making Las Vegas the entertainment capital of the world.”
Tickets for the final shows go on sale on Friday (28.09.18).
