Celine Dion to resume her Colosseum residency this August

Celine Dion will reclaim her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace this August after taking a hiatus last August to focus on her husband Rene's, their family, and associated health issues. Dion will perform 40 shows Aug. 27, 2015 - Jan. 17, 2016.

"I am excited to finally tell my fans I am coming back to Caesars Palace," says Dion. "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."
