Celine Dion Announces First Music Tour In Years

Music superstar Celine Dion has announced she’s planning new music and a new world tour.

One of the most immediately recognized and widely respected superstars in pop music history, Celine Dion, announced that she will be embarking on her COURAGE WORLD TOUR, set to kick off in the fall of 2019. The multiple award-winning artist made the announcement to a packed house of fans during a special live event at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. Unveiling a short video chronicling the end of her iconic Las Vegas residency, Celine surprised the audience with the news of the COURAGE WORLD TOUR, her first U.S. tour in over 10 years. Delighting her fans with a very special performance of songs from her chart-topping catalogue, Dion closed the event with an intimate Q&A with the audience. Watch the full event through a previously recorded Facebook Live here.

Celine says, “I’m so grateful to all the fans who have come to see my show in Las Vegas for so many years, and now I get the chance to create a brand new show and bring it to them in North America, and around the world. I’m very excited about this tour, and my new album…coming later this year.” The COURAGE WORLD TOUR will kick-off September 18 in Quebec City and will make stops in over 50 cities including Montreal, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Miami, Dallas, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, and more. The tour is produced by Concerts West/AEG Presents.

Tickets for the first leg of the tour, which includes dates from Quebec to Pittsburgh and includes a Jacksonville stop, will go on-sale to the public Friday, April 12 at 10 a.m. local time on ticketmaster.com or at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena Tom Bush Family of Dealerships Box Office. Members of TeamCeline will have access to purchase tickets before the public through an advance pre-sale. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the public beginning Monday, April 8 at 10 a.m. through Thursday, April 11 at 10 p.m. local time.

“We’ve been thrilled to be working with Celine for these last sixteen years in Las Vegas, and we’re even more delighted that for the first time in more than a decade, she will be bringing her show to her fans, all around the world, starting here in North America this September,” said John Meglen president & Co-CEO of Concerts West. “Celine is a treasure, truly a voice for the ages.”
