Legendary songstress Céline Dion has announced a summer UK and European tour.
The 16-date LIVE 2017 tour will begin in Copanhagen on June 15, taking in various cities such as London, Bordeaux and Berlin, before finishing off in Birmingham on July 27. Aside from her nine sold-out shows in Paris last year, this tour marks Céline’s return to the UK and Europe after more than eight years.
Of the news, Céline commented: “I am so looking forward to returning to the UK and Europe this summer, these wonderful cities hold such special memories for me and I’m really excited to be coming back and seeing all my fans again.”
During the CÉLINE DION LIVE 2017 Tour, we can expect an array of smash hits from the singer’s outstanding 30 year career. In that time, she has garnered over 250 million album sales, five Grammys, two Academy Awards, seven American Music Awards, 20 Juno Awards (Canada) and an astonishing 40 Felix Awards (Quebec).
The tour coincides with a break in Céline’s outstanding Las Vegas residency. The star reached 1000 performances in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in October 2016, with performances currently on sale through until June 2017.
