Celine Dion has announced a new string of fall shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The five-time Grammy winner has added 27 new shows, which will take place between Sept. 20 - Oct. 8 and Nov. 1 - Nov. 26.

According to a news release posted by promoter AEG Live, the multi-platinum seller made the announcement on Feb. 24 at her official Celine Dion website. The fall dates come on the heels of the international superstar's highly emotional stage return to a capacity crowd in Las Vegas on Tuesday, that marked the "My Heart Will Go" hitmaker's first live performance since canceling her residency last month after the loss of both her husband Rene Angelil and brother Daniel to cancer.

Angelil was also Dion's lifetime manager and was the visionary behind the launch of her massively successful headlining residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, which began back in March 2003. Her show last night opened with a photo montage dedicated to Angelil and a touching quote from the Canadian chanteuse. Fans can see a clip from the show above.

"I understood that my career was in a way was his masterpiece, his song, his symphony," wrote the grieving singer. "The idea of leaving it unfinished would have hurt him terribly. I realized that if he ever left us I would have to continue without him, for him."

Including the addition of Tuesday's performance, Dion has now performed 966 shows at the Colosseum. The newly unveiled dates will bring her total number of shows up to a milestone of 1,000 performances before the year's end.

Pre-sales for the new dates begin Wed., Feb. 2. Tickets will go on sale to the general public Saturday, Feb. 27 at 10 a.m. PT. For more information, click here.

Dion's current run of shows at The Colosseum will continue through March 12. She will then return in May for shows through June 4.

Her Las Vegas residency continues on Feb. 24 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Tickets for all Celine Dion shows are available at AXS.
