About Celine Dion
Celine Dion’s first Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, A New Day… created and directed by Franco Dragone, was a groundbreaking production that played 717 performances from March 25, 2003, through Dec. 15, 2007. After a three year break from Las Vegas, Céline made a triumphant return on March 15, 2011, with a glamorous new show directed by legendary Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich aptly titled, Céline at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
“Back in 2003, when I began performing in this newly built theater, little did we know we were going to reach such an incredible number of shows,” said Céline. “Thank you René who had this vision and shared the journey with me and thank you to the four million fans who made this possible by choosing music as their international language. And thank you Caesars Palace and AEG for dreaming with us, making all of this a reality.”
“We are honored to be celebrating 1,000 shows with Céline and humbled by her passion, strength, and commitment to a vision that began over 14 years ago,” said John Nelson, senior vice president of AEG Live Las Vegas. “There is no one like Céline and we look forward to working with her and her incredible team on another 1,000 shows.”
“Since her premiere performance in 2003, Céline Dion’s residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace has led the transformation of Las Vegas into the home of great musical artists. She is the reigning superstar among a brilliant group of globally famous performers and sparked the groundbreaking for a term that is now commonplace in Las Vegas – residencies,” said Mark Frissora, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “We are proud to have Céline call The Colosseum at Caesars Palace home.”
