LAS VEGAS, March 25, 2015 /CNW/ -- Celine Dion announced today that she will return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Thursday, Aug. 27, 2015 to resume her Las Vegas show, Celine. The residency, which is presented jointly by AEG Live and Caesars Entertainment, has been on hiatus since August 2014 when Celine put her show business activities on hold to focus on her husband Rene, their family, and associated health issues.
"I am excited to finally tell my fans I am coming back to Caesars Palace," says Celine. "It was Rene's wish that I come back. While my family will always be my priority, my fans are just as important to me. I look forward to performing again for all of you starting August 27th, and more importantly having Rene there with me. Thank you for giving me this time I needed to spend with my family."
The news of Celine's return comes on the 12-year anniversary of her first performance in The Colosseum, when she opened the venue on March 25, 2003. Since then, Celine has performed 927 shows in The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
