Celine Dion announces new tour, including first MKE stop in more than a decade
Celine Dion is calling it quits on her longtime Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace. Her next stop? According to an announcement made Wednesday via a video on her Facebook page, the Canadian icon's headed on tour near, far, wherever you are – including a stop at Fiserv Forum on Nov. 3, marking her first Brew City stop in more than a decade.
Fiserv Forum confirmed the concert and the official date on Twitter early Wednesday evening.
The famous "My Heart Will Go On" singer's last show in Milwaukee was at the Bradley Center in 2008 for her "Taking Chances" world tour.
Starting her career in Canada as a French-language teen pop star, Dion emerged as a major star during the '90s with breakthroughs like performing the theme song to Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" in 1991 – which earned the singer her first Grammy nomination for Record of the Year and her first win for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 1993.
She continued to add monster hits to her resume throughout the decade, including "The Power of Love," "Because You Loved Me" and, of course, the Oscar-winning "My Heart Will Go On" from the monster blockbuster "Titanic."
During the 2000s, Dion continued dropping hits but also turned her attention toward Vegas with two residencies in the tourist hot spot: "A New Day" from 2003 through 2007 and "Celine" from 2011 through this year. Her last English-language album was "Loved Me Back to Life" six years ago, though she did record a new song just last year for fellow Canadian star Ryan Reynolds and his comic book sequel "Deadpool 2."
Tickets for Celine Dion's "Courage" world tour will go on sale beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 12 at Fiserv Forum's official website.
