Once Celine Dion has freed herself from the contract with Las Vegas' Colosseum at Caesars Palace, she will concentrate on supporting 'Taking Chances'. The new album will be promoted in 45 dates all across North America and Canada, but not so soon.
The Las Vegas contract will wind down December 15 but Dion is taking her time for the first date in Stateside. It is only begun in Boston on August 12 next year and will run up to January 20, 2009 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Before that she will first serve some dates in Europe, Asia and Africa that will start February 14 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
"These past five years of performing at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas have been an incredibly rewarding experience for myself and my family, but I'm ready to hit the road again, with my husband and son by my side", Dion said in a statement. "It's going to be so exciting to tour the U.S. and Canada again, and perform everything with a brand new show. I just can't wait!"
Famous tour director Jamie King (Madonna, Christina Aguilera) will helm the project. According to Dion's official website, tickets to the North American leg will go on sale November 9 or 10 through Ticketmaster. Click here to find out about the dates and tickets.
