Céline Dion is making her way back to Las Vegas. And, according to reports, the 47-year-old singer will dedicate the opening of her show at The Colosseum on Tuesday to her late husband, René Angélil.
“We are please to announce the return of Céline to The Colosseum at Ceasers Palace in Las Vegas,” the singer’s website revealed. “Join Céline and her fans in Las Vegas for a trip down memory lane, live at The Colosseum, to celebrate her return and witness Céline’s loving tribute to René.
A source divulged to People magazine that “the first 10 minutes” of the show, which is set to take place on Feb. 23, will be live streamed on the Grammy-winner’s website, CelineDion.com. That means fans can tune in to watch Dion’s emotional tribute to her husband who died of throat cancer on Jan. 14. Angélil was first diagnosed with the disease in 1999, five years after the duo got married.
Three weeks after Angélil died, Dion performed her first Las Vegas concert in honor of her deceased beau. The event was attended by Angélil’s friends and family — all who shared a few words about the iconic music producer.
"I feel his love in this room," the teary-eyed singer said during the show, revealing that she felt Angélil encouraging her to perform. "I feel his strength and his warmth being reflected in all of you. René always surrounded me with the best people who believed in us and always worked so hard on our behalf."
Fans can tune in to the opening of Dion’s heartfelt concert on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 10:30 p.m. EST through the singer’s website CelineDion.com. A reminder can also be set so you don’t miss the moving tribute.
