Celine Dion debuts new single, 'Taking Chances' ... new Album and Worldwide tour, to come!



    TORONTO, Sept. 12 /CNW/ - Columbia Records is proud to announce the
release of "Taking Chances", the first single from Celine Dion's forthcoming
album, also entitled Taking Chances. The song, written by Kara DioGuardi and
the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart, and produced by John Shanks, marks the beginning
of a new era in Celine's extraordinary career.
    A few months from now, on December 15th, 2007, Celine will take her final
bows on the Colosseum stage at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, where she has
enjoyed a record-breaking five-year run of sold-out performances and critical
acclaim, with her spectacular show, A New Day... The show has been documented
in a deluxe High-Definition DVD, which will be released later this year by
Sony BMG Music worldwide. "These past five years have been a wonderful
experience for me", says Celine. "To perform every night with such an amazing
cast of dancers and musicians on this beautiful show created by Franco
Dragone, has been a dream come true. The fans have been so incredibly
supportive, coming to see us every night, year after year...it will be
difficult to say goodbye, but I'm also ready for the next adventure...I'm
looking forward to a new chapter."
    On November 13th, 2007 Celine will release "Taking Chances", her first
English studio album in over 3 years, and shortly thereafter, tickets will go
on sale for her first worldwide tour in 10 years. Celine, who is the biggest
selling female artist of all time, selling over 180 million albums, opens her
tour on February 14th, 2008 in Johannesburg, South Africa giving a benefit
concert for the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund. She does another 7 shows in
South Africa during the month of February, contributing additional proceeds
from these shows to Mr. Mandela's Children's Fund. From South Africa the tour
makes stops in the Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Europe and
North America, playing both stadiums and arenas throughout. The year-long tour
will visit 5 continents, over 25 countries, and more than 100 cities.
