Celine Dion’s Residency at Resorts World Las Vegas Confirmed
Celine Dion’s concert residency at Resorts World Las Vegas has been officially confirmed. Celine Dion will be leading Resorts World’s all-star entertainment lineup which also includes Carry Underwood, Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, Tiesto, and Zedd.
Resorts World Las Vegas is scheduled to debut on June 24, 2021, however, the celebrities won’t commence their shows upon the opening of the new Strip resort due to the pandemic. It’s been reported that Celine Dion, one of the highest grossing Vegas performers of all time, will be back to Vegas for her new concert residency in late 2022.
Celine Dion’s Previous Residency at Caesars Palace Las Vegas
Celine Dion played over 1,000 shows at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. She said that Caesars Palace was an important part of her life for many years. Her first residency was from March 25, 2003 through December 15, 2007. Her second residency, known as “Celine”, started on March 15, 2011.
Celine Dion made Las Vegas her part-time home for over 20 years, raising her children and spending time with her husband and manager, Rene Angelil, in a suburban home in Las Vegas. Angelil was credited for playing an important role in Dion’s success. The couple shared three children. Rene Angelil died from throat cancer in January 2016 at the age of 73.
Celine Dion announced that the final date of her Caesars Palace concert was June 8, 2019. She had 28 shows before ending her concert residency at Caesars Palace at the time of her announcement. Tickets for the final concerts were sold out. Celine Dion returned to Montreal Canada after ending her concert residency at Caesars Palace.
John Nelson, Senior Vice President of AEG Presents, praised Celine Dion for her innovative and excellent performances. John Meglen, co-CEO of Concerts West/AEG Presents, said Celine Dion changed the landscape of entertainment in Las Vegas in a positive way and people thanked Celine for her contribution to Las Vegas.
There could be a few reasons why Celine Dion ended her shows at Caesars Palace and the number one reason could be her health.
In late March 2018, Celine Dion canceled three weeks of Las Vegas shows due to health issues. She later revealed that she suffered a disorder known as Patulous Eustachian tube, which is a medical condition in her middle ear. Celine Dion had been experiencing that disorder for 12 to 18 months before she had an ear surgery and took sometime to recover from it.
She ultimately returned to her residency on May 22, 2018. She said she was very happy but a bit nervous to go back to the stage. It was the hardest thing to cancel shows and the decision to do so was not made lightly, according to her. She said she was grateful for the support from her fans who came to see her shows over the years.
The Grammy Award winner turned 50 in 2019. Insiders said that the beloved diva worked too hard and she really needed to make some changes to her life.
Celine Dion said it was sad to say goodbye to Las Vegas and she definitely had mixed emotions about her final run at Caesars Palace.
Celine Dion’s signature song “My Heart will go on” was one of the best-selling singles of all time and she had millions of fans worldwide. Her heart would go on, but her shows would not after June 2019. “Not everyone has the privilege to do what they love in life.”, she said. There are no better words than the title of one of her songs – “That’s the way it is”.
