Celine Dion will head overseas in 2017 for a tour of Europe. The five-time Grammy winner will perform 15 shows across Europe with multiple dates in the U.K throughout June and July., following the summer wrap up of her ongoing residency in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
The Canadian international superstar made the announcement on Jan. 24 via a news release posted at her official Celine Dion website along with a video announcement posted Tuesday at her official YouTube channel. Dubbed “Celine Dion Live 2017,” the tour will include stops in a number of European countries not visited by the multi-platinum seller in eight years.
In the 1:07 minute bilingual video clip, the beloved pop diva drops the European tour news casually to her piano player during band rehearsal in Las Vegas. Dion gives details in French while the musician responds with feigned surprise in English with comments like “Europe this summer?” The humorous clip is followed by the official tour video promo, which fans can check out above.
“I am so looking forward to returning to the U.K. and Europe this summer," Dion wrote in a statement. "These wonderful cities hold such special memories for me and I’m really excited to be coming back and seeing all my fans again.”
The tour will launch June 15 in Copenhagen, Denmark. at the Royal Arena. The summer romp will take the "My Heart Will Go On" hitmaker to major cities across Europe, including Stockholm and Berlin along with multi-night stops in London and Paris before wrapping up July 27 in Birmingham, United Kingdom, at Barclaycard.
Select presales will begin Thurs., Jan. 26 at 12:00 p.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public Fri., Feb. 3 at 10:00 a.m. local time. For more information, click here.
