The More Celine Dion Changes, the More She Stays the Same: Taking Chances Tour
GUEST BLOGGER: EMMY PEI
The expression â€œWhat happens in Vegas, stays in Vegasâ€ is an unwritten rule that is followed by many, and understood by all. ForÂ Celine Dion, however, some rules are meant to be broken. While tourists were busy gambling their children’s college fund away, and while couples who shared nothing more than a dozen tequila shots were getting hitched in Cupid’s Chapel on Las Vegas Blvd,Â Celine DionÂ was busy performing 717 shows to nearly 3 million adoring fans at Caesar’s Palace. And with her upcoming â€œTaking Chancesâ€ tour, she is proving that the new unwritten rule should be â€œWhat happens in Vegas, stays in Vegasâ€¦unless what happened grossed more than $400 millions dollars, in which case, you bring what happened in Vegas around the world!â€
As her status evolved over the years from small town French Canadian singer, to award-winning pop star, to larger than life super-diva, her live shows have developed into events which are nothing short of spectacular. You don’t even have to be a fan of her singing to appreciate the Cirque du Soleil calibre talent swarming her stages and appealing to your senses. World class musicians, dancers, artistic directors, and choreographers have put blood sweat and tears into creating these shows, and withÂ CelineÂ singing her heart out at the front of it all, you can’t help but respect the journey this woman has made from such humble beginnings.
Along with the extra glitter and breathtaking stage sets, people with Celine Dion tickets can expect a little more edge and sexiness during her world tour. Aptly named after her new album, â€œTaking Chancesâ€ reveals a Celine who’s not afraid of risks, of exposing her vulnerability, and of giving her all for the benefit of others. The image of her on her album cover resembles a Calvin Kline ad as she seductively looks out, hair dishevelled and blazer wide open. She’s also hired Emmy-Award winning choreographer and director Jamie King, who’s injected sexiness via incredible dance routines into the tours of superstars like Madonna, Shakira, Avril Lavigne, Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey, just to name a few.
Over the years,Â Celine DionÂ brings her voice, her charisma, and her passion for music to every stage she performs on. And while her shows have dramatically increased in glitter, glamour, and gloss, she has and will continue to win fans over by singing from the heart. The main constant in Celine’s career, and the reason why she’s maintained the loyal following she’s earned since day one, is the fact that she sings about what means the most to her in this world: the power of love.
