recently wrapped the Spring/Summer run of her chart-topping Las Vegas show with 54 consecutive sold out performances that played to 230,000 fans from March through August, 2011 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Celine’s triumphant return to Las Vegas opened to unanimous critical acclaim and is being called the number one show in North America by Billboard Magazine Boxscore listings and the “biggest act since Elvis” by Newsweek.  

“We did not know how Celine could top her first five-year run in The Colosseum but she has certainly done it,” said John Meglen, President and co-CEO of AEG Live/Concerts West. “She is a force of nature and has brought to us an extraordinary show. It’s selling stronger than the first run.”

“Caesars Palace is thrilled with the overwhelming response we have received for Celine’s return to The Colosseum,” said Gary Selesner, president of the famed resort. “Fans from all over the world have traveled to Las Vegas to experience her show, and I am confident that we will continue to see this in 2012.”

Celine returns to The Colosseum on December 28, 2011 to ring in the New Year with performances already on-sale through January 22, 2012 including a performance on New Year’s Eve. Now, due to overwhelming demand, 52 more performances from February 22 through August 19, 2012 will be going on-sale on Saturday, September 17 at 10 a.m. (PST).
