Celine Dion concert chronology

Celine Dion Live 2017 was the thirteenth concert tour by Canadian singer Celine Dion. It was organized to support Dion's 2016 French-language studio album, Encore un soir, and few rare songs were performed along with fan favourites in the anglophone setlist.[1][2][3] With twenty five shows, it began in Copenhagen, Denmark on 15 June 2017 and concluded on 5 August 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.[2]

After Dion's last large-scale world tour in 2008 and 2009 in support for her album Taking Chances, she began a new residence show at The Colosseum At Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas in 2011 with a contract until 2019. On 25 January 2017, Dion's official website announced sixteen shows in Europe to take place during the summer months of 2017.[1][2] Tickets for those shows went on-sale to the general public on 3 February 2017.[1][2] Eight additional dates, in London, Paris, Lille, Manchester, Birmingham and Berlin were later added.[4] On 31 March 2017, The SSE Hydro posted an intimation of a concert in Glasgow, Scotland. Details for this show were announced during the first week of April 2017.[4] Véronic DiCaire joined Dion as the opening act.[5]

On 14 June 2017, it was announced that both shows scheduled to take place at Manchester Arena on 25 June and 1 August would be rescheduled due to ongoing investigation after the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing.[6] The shows were rescheduled to be at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on 25 June 2017 and 2 August 2017.[7]

Critical reception

The tour received positive reviews. The Independent rated the concert five stars out of five, calling it "a flawless show with zero pretence" with Dion's "unstoppable vocals".[8] The Guardian rated the concert four stars out of five.[9] London Evening Standard also rated it four stars out of five, writing that Dion "didn’t just crank out soulful power ballads" but she was also "a stage-strutting, air-punching, kiss-blowing bundle of fun, gratitude and good humour".[10] Gay Times also praised the show, writing that Dion proved she's very much at the height of her career.[11] In a positive review Metro wrote that Dion's "vocals can easily be considered the eighth wonder of the world".[12] The Sun noted that Dion paid tribute to Manchester and London terror attack victims as she dedicated "Recovering" to them.[13] According to a positive review by the Official Charts Company, Dion's concert was "almost a religious experience".[14] Her concert in Leeds, on 25 June, was given a five star rating by the Manchester Evening News. Performing on a stage with a backdrop of "Leeds in loving support of Manchester", Dion was praised for her boundless energy and note and pitch perfect performance.[15]

Broadcasts and recordings

Celine's team recorded two shows in Paris (8 and 9 July) as well as two shows in London (29 and 30 July.) Thus, both French and English versions of the tour were captured. There has been no official confirmation regarding a live CD or DVD.

On January 26th 2018, a recording of "Encore un soir" was broadcast on TF1 as part of "Jean-Jacques Goldman, 40 years in music."[16]

Commercial reception

Dion sold-out all of her European concerts.[17][18][19][20] She also broke records across the United Kingdom as the highest grossing artist at each UK venue where she performed.[21][22][23][24]

Additional Notes


  • "Loved Me Back to Life" was performed only during the first three concerts meaning that Celine's latest English album was not represented by any song throughout the rest of the tour.
  • "Ordinaire" was performed only during the first French-speaking concert in Bordeaux on 29 June 2017.
  • Bern had a mixed setlist which included both French and English songs.
  • "Pour que tu m'aimes encore" had two alternative versions during the tour. The song was performed in a standard way during English-speaking concerts whereas in French-speaking territories it served as an encore and was sung acoustically.
