Celine Dion To Stream First Concert After Husband’s Death

Celine Dion will live-stream her first concert as a widow to fans around the world as a thank you for helping to support her as she mourned her husband’s death in January (16).

The singer will return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and resume her residency there on Tuesday night (23Feb16), and just like her husband Rene Angelil’s funeral in Montreal, Canada and his tribute event earlier this month (Feb16), devotees will be able to watch online.

The start of the show will include a special tribute to her late husband – and that part of the concert be be available to fans around the globe.

A message on Celine’s website, where the stream will be available, reads: “On Tuesday, February 23 at 10:30 PM (Eastern time), join the public and fans who came to salute her return and witness with us live Celine’s love tribute to Rene as we all take a trip down memory lane.”

Angelil lost his battle with cancer on 14 January (16). He was laid to rest at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, where he wed Celine in 1984.

Dion returned to The Colosseum stage at the beginning of February (03Feb16) for a tribute event held in Rene’s honour, but she did not perform. Instead, she used the opportunity to address the crowd and thank everyone for the tributes that had been paid to her late husband.

“This is my home away from home,” Celine said. “At the same time I’m supposed to feel extremely comfortable being home and right now I’m not sure how comfortable I feel.

“I feel his (Rene’s) love in this room. I feel his strength and his warmth being reflected in all of you. Rene always surrounded me with the best people who believed in us and always worked so hard on our behalf.”

Celine was joined by Rene’s children from his previous marriages and his brother at the memorial event. Many of her late husband’s music industry friends and business associates, including Caesars Palace executives, recalled their memories of the music manager.
