LAS VEGAS, April 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Véronic DiCaire, the extraordinary singer, comedian and entertainer who has been making waves all over the world, will be bringing her new show VÉRONIC Voices to the Jubilee! Theater at Bally's Las Vegas for a limited engagement this summer from Thursday, June 20 through Saturday, August 31. Tickets are on-sale now.
VÉRONIC Voices will feature the unique talents of Véronic, the only female tribute artist of her kind who pays homage to the most popular female recording artists in the world. Whether she's singing Lady Gaga or Madonna, Whitney or Adele, Pink or Celine, Véronic's amazing repertoire of voices backed by six dancers and five state-of-the-art video screens will take audiences on a jaw-dropping, captivating entertainment journey like no other.
Now for the first time, Véronic is bringing her unique talents to the United States and to the Las Vegas Strip, with a show that is proudly co-produced by Celine Dion, for audiences from around the world to experience what critics and fans have been raving about.
"I am very excited to present my new show at Bally's," said Véronic. "I feel the timing is great for this new kind of tribute and the team that Rene and Celine have put together is world class… I couldn't ask for a better opportunity. Las Vegas is the perfect playground for what I do and I can't wait to start!"
"Véronic has been building a fan base around the world, and we are excited to welcome her to Bally's Las Vegas, where I am sure she will gain many more fans," said David Hoenemeyer, regional president of Bally's Las Vegas. "I know that our guests will be amazed and entertained by her and all of her voices."
Véronic will make her first US television debut and performance on Katie Couric's talk show "Katie" airing on ABC on Thursday, April 25.
Early in her career, Véronic enjoyed great success on the stage in her native country Canada taking on leading roles in such musicals as "Grease" and "Chicago." In 2002, Véronic released her debut self-titled French language album through Warner Music, which garnered numerous industry nominations and awards in both Quebec and Ontario. After the release and tour of her second album, Véronic had the opportunity in 2007 to appear at the two most prestigious comedy festivals in Canada: the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, and the Grand Rire Festival in Quebec.
Véronic's unique talent of combining her singing background with comic relief attracted the attention of Celine Dion and Rene Angelil, who invited her to open for Celine during the Taking Chances Tour. In 2008, Véronic opened 11 shows at Montreal's Bell Centre to 22,000 people each night getting multiple standing ovations and rave reviews. For the next 18 months, Véronic toured Quebec and Ontario selling out theatres wherever she went, and in the spring of 2010 did her first of many European shows, debuting in Paris at the Theatre de la Gaite Montparnasse. By the fall of 2012, she performed close to 200 sold-out shows throughout France, Switzerland and Belgium, and became a huge prime-time television star as a judge on "X-Factor France." In addition to selling out the prestigious Theatre Olympia in Paris 12 times, Véronic played to nightly audiences of 5,000 plus in both The Arena in Geneva, and the Forest National in Brussels.
