During her residency, Dion performed over 70 times a year, earned $500,000 per performance, and appeared in front of 200,000 total spectators annually. Dion’s 427 shows of Celine has made the Quebec-native singer the most profitable act in Las Vegas since Elvis Presley.
She first performed Céline on March 15, 2011, after completing her first residency A New Day… from 2003 to 2007 at the same venue.
“I definitely have mixed emotions about this final run. Las Vegas has become my home and performing at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace has been a big part of my life for the past two decades,” said Dion on her website. “It’s been an amazing experience and I’m so grateful to all the fans who have come to see us throughout the years. Every show we do at the Colosseum throughout this fall, and right up until the final one, will feel very special.”
Dion announced on Instagram in September that she returned to the studio to record new music.
“Back in the studio… excited about recording some great new tunes,” she wrote in the caption.

Thought it might be a tad late to try to make the trek to Vegas to see the superstar perform there one last time, expect social media to be full of emotional farewells as the singer prepares to tackle future endeavors.
