Canadian songstress, Celine Dion, has announced her North American, ‘Courage World Tour’ which kicks off in the fall. Dion announced the tour during a live Facebook event on 3rd April 2019 at the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. The Courage World Tour will be the singer’s 14th concert tour and will be in support of her upcoming English studio album, “Courage,” set to be released in November 2019.
Initial Canada tour dates
Celine’s North American trek will launch at the Videotron Center in Quebec City, Canada. Celine will perform in Quebec from September 18th all through to September 20th. Quebec is Celine’s home town, and this part of her tour will be of sentimental value to her and her fans. After Quebec, Celine will perform in Montreal at the Bell Centre on September 26th and 27th. She will then grace the stage in Ottawa, Ontario at the Canadian Tire Centre on October 15th.
Additional Canada tour dates
Following multiple requests from her Canadian fans, Celine has added a few extra Canadian tour dates. Dion will perform a third night in Montreal at the Bell Centre on September 30th. This will be in addition to her previously scheduled performances on 26th and 27th September. She will also perform a second show in Toronto on December 10th in addition to the initial one scheduled on December 9th.
Most recently, the Ottawa Citizen announced that Celine would perform a second show in Ottawa at the Canadian Tire Centre on October 16th.
USA tour dates
Following the Ottawa show, Celine will travel Stateside for a performance in Cleveland, OH at the Quicken Loans Arena. Her next stops will cover the Midwest and Eastern cities until the end of the year. Celine’s first show in 2020 will be in Jacksonville, Florida on January 8th at the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena. She will then head to the south and finally to the East coast before culminating her tour in Canada at the Bells MTS Place in Winnipeg.
What fans can expect
Fans can expect a blend of the oldies and the new sounds from her upcoming studio album. In Dion’s promo for the tour titled “Ciao for now Las Vegas,” she teases a new song, “Flying On My Own” from her upcoming album Courage. The song affords fans a sneak peek of Celine’s new style and approach to music. Celine however, promises to be herself even as she creates new music.
Celine will leave her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in June, where she has performed over 1,100 shows for the last 16 years to finalize her preparations for the tour. Finally, in her own words, Celine indicates that the purpose of the tour is to see her fans and give back the love she has received from them in her career spanning 35 years.
