Celine Dion made a triumphant comeback to Sin City, performing the first night of her spring residency on May 22 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The show was the five-time Grammy winner's first since undergoing surgery for a middle ear infection, which forced the “My Heart Will Go On” hitmaker to cancel a string of shows earlier this year.
Billboard reports on May 23 that the international Canadian superstar delighted fans with a hit-filled 16-song setlist, which featured the live debut of her latest single “Ashes” from the hit film “Deadpool 2.” The Sin City crowd welcomed back the beloved pop diva with open arms, honoring her with a standing ovation at the outset of the show.
Fans who missed the action can check fan-shot footage of the multi-platinum seller performing “Ashes” for the first time in front of an audience. Clips from the movie flash across the giant LED screen as Dion sings, “What's left to say/These prayers ain't working anymore/Every word shot down in flames/What's left to do with these broken pieces on the floor.”
“Ashes” is available as part of the “Deadpool 2” soundtrack, which dropped on May 18 via Columbia in conjunction with the movie's theatrical release. The album features 12 songs and is available here in CD, digital and streaming formats.
Dion's next performance takes place May 23 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars with the residency running through until June 9. The busy chanteuse will then head out on a world tour, which kicks off June 26 in Tokyo at Tokyo Dome and will wrap up with a two-night stand Aug. 12 – Aug. 14 in Auckland, New Zealand, at Spark Arena
