Celine Dion at the Coliseum. Las Vegas’ biggest draw!

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

Celine Dion is drawing massive crowds every show at Caesar’s Palace in her ongoing show. For details of dates and tickets available contact the box office via the Internet at 

Celine DionIf your musical taste runs to Celine Dion then you are in the right place to indulge yourself. The new Celine show at the Coliseum is all about the star herself rather than the Cirque du Soliel trappings that were such an integral part of the mix in her last residency at the Coliseum. Not that there is any shortage of spectacle in her 85 minute production show, to say nothing of the almost unheard of sophistication of a 31 piece live orchestra/band to accompany her show. The staging is fascinating and BIG but designed never to overshadow the star. It helps that Celine is larger than life!

Tickets for the shows begin at $55 and go upwards in a sharp arc, and unfortunately discounts are tough to find. However, if you are a fan of Celine then this shouldn’t stop you. Celine is beginning to ‘own’ Vegas (certainly commercially) in much the same way Elvis did in the 70s, if you look back at not seeing Elvis perform live then maybe it is time to pony up the cash. I find it hard to believe that any Celine fan could walk away from this production less than delighted with what they had seen.

Dion is the largest selling female singer in the history of popular music and she certainly pays homage to her recording history during the evening, but she features some interesting and unusual choices of cover songs. Ella Fitzgerald, Janis Ian and Shirley Bassey are all given a shout out in her show and her talented band of musicians are allowed some interesting and entertaining interludes during the show while Ms. Dion changes costumes. The high-tech staging continually arranges and re-arranges the musicians to showcase their contribution to the show.

What about if you are not a Celine fan? Well, I think it would be hard not to enjoy the staging and production value of the event, however, if you aren’t a Celine fan I would guess that this is not the show to choose!
