The singer has announced that she’s embarking on a tour in September 2019.
“For the first time in over a decade, Celine Dion will tour North America,” the caption read on a photo listing her tour dates posted on Dion’s official Instagram account Wednesday. “Tickets go on sale Friday, April 12. Team Celine presale starts Monday, April 8.”
The Courage World Tour officially kicks off Sept. 18 in Quebec City, Canada and will make stops in more than 50 North American cities.
Dion Vegas is ending her popular residency at Caesars Palace in June. “I think it’s time for a change,” she said during a performance and Q &
A “Time to hit the road.”
The Candian singer also announced that she will be releasing a new album around November.
It will be her first music released since the death from cancer of her husband-manager René Angélil in 2016.
Dion said she won’t be taking their children, Rene-Charles, 18, and 8-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy, on tour with her.
She said she choose “Courage” as the title of tour because there’s a song on the album titled that.
“I think we all go through a lot of things in life, we all do,” Dion said.
“Whether it’s losing someone, whether it’s a sickness, something we have to fight, something that life imposes on us and I think I went
through a lot. Life had given me the tools to find my inner strength, in a way, to find courage to keep going.”
“When I lost René, he wanted me back on stage,” she added. “He wanted to make sure I was still practicing my passion and I wanted to
prove to him that I’m fine. We’re fine, we’re going to be okay. I got this.”
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
