Céline Dion released the news on Monday that she would be returning to her Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum.
The singer’s performances were cancelled for several weeks as she recently went through both the death of her husband, René Angelil, as well as her brother.
A message posted on Céline’s website read:
“We are pleased to announce the return of Céline to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. 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.”
The first ten minutes of the show will be streamed on her website for people to watch from a distance as she honors the memory of her late husband.
René passed away of throat cancer in January. He had been in Céline’s life since she was only 12 years old, when he heard one of her demo tapes. He became a mentor to the singer, and then later in 1994 the couple married and were together ever since.
Three week’s after René’s death Céline spoke on stage at René’s memorial service, which was also held in Las Vegas, but this will be the first time that she is back to the stage as a performer. They also held a funeral for René at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal where they were married. Céline’s 14-year-old son gave the eulogy.
There are 12 more shows scheduled for Céline’s season before she goes on hiatus.
Céline’s official return to the stage February 23, and the livestream is set to begin at 10:30 PM EST.
