  • Celine Dion - New Las Vegas Residency

    Celine Dion, Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan Plot Las Vegas Residencies

    Quartet will be the first artists to kick off shows at the Strip’s newest venue Resorts World Casino

    Celine Dion, Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan will all head to Las Vegas later this year to begin residencies at new propertyResorts World Casino.

    “It’s a beautiful privilege to have another show in Vegas,” Dion tells Rolling Stone of her newest residency. The singer is a Vegas veteran, having headlined A New Day…from 2003 to 2007 then returning for Celine in 2011. Both took place at Caesars Palace, with the latter wrapping in 2019 after eight years. “For me, it’s impressive! Years back, I was supposed to be here for three months and now here I am!”

    Dion kicks off The Theatre at Resorts World Casino — a 5,000-seat theater inside the massive luxury destination — on November 5th, making way then for three new faces on the Strip. Perry, Underwood and Bryan have all been in talks with promoters and venues for years to plan their own residencies.

    “I’ve always been interested in the idea of a residency at some point and when this opportunity came up, to be a part of something all-new from the ground level, I was so excited to get involved,” Underwood says of Reflection, which will open on December 1st.

    “Vegas is in my blood,” Perry explains of her lifelong connection to the city. Her grandmother was a seamstress for showgirls, so Perry and her family would visit her and stay at Excalibur several times a year. Her late aunt was a topless showgirl who later became an ordained minister. Like Dion, she’s seen how much the city, its visitors and the entertainment circuit that fuels it have changed over the years.

    “Ten years ago, Vegas was a different story. They’ve been doing revamping and remodeling during this downtime [over the last year] to focus on what people want, what the next generation wants.”

    As Perry puts it, the focus is less on gambling and more on “experiences,” which all the performers are hoping to achieve. For Katy Perry: Play, which launches on New Year’s Eve, the pop star has returned to her signature black hair for the poster and wants to appeal to a more general audience than the hardcore fans she knows she would see on tour. “When we had a meeting the other day, I was like ‘Okay guys, tell me my top 20 Spotify songs,'” Perry says. “That’s my set list.”

    Perry’s American Idol co-judge Luke Bryan is still in the early planning stages of his show, but is similarly focused on high-energy, party-friendly fun. “I can say that it will be different from the shows the fans will see on the road,” he says. His initial six-show run will begin on February 11th. “We want the Vegas show to be unique to that room and want them to leave saying, ‘Wow, I need to catch him on tour.’ Just like we want the fans on tour to leave those concerts saying, ‘I really want to see his Vegas show.’”

    Dion appreciates that she is continuously pulled back into the Vegas fold. For her, it not only provides the ideal stability for her family but also makes for a great fan experience. “If I put myself in the fans’ shoes, they get to travel. They’ve been preparing for months and get to take the plane or a car and get a hotel room. It’s a whole-day thing; it’s not just a concert.”

    Tickets for all the shows will go on sale May 24th at 10am PST, with Resorts World opening on June 24th. Zedd and Tiesto will have their own residencies at the AYU Dayclub, an outdoor, poolside venue where both day and nighttime events will be hosted initially over the summer.

    Be interesting to see how these new shows perform - Celine is the biggest act in Las Vegas history by both tickets and gross revenues, so if anyone can do this, she can!

          Well, it’s a mini-residency - but I think it’s the first of many shows.

              Celine Dion Returns To Las Vegas’ Newest Resort—Along With Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan And Katy Perry

              Las Vegas has become such a hotbed of live music travel and destination concerts that it is hard to believe the phenomenon is fairly recent. Celine Dion was almost single-handedly responsible for the transformation and elevation of Sin City’s entertainment scene beyond reprises of Broadway plays, acrobatic, comedy, magic and stage production shows. Dion pioneered the idea of the musical superstar “residency,” essentially moving to Las Vegas and performing so regularly for so many years that Caesars Palace, an iconic Strip hotel, built her a 4,300-seat arena, the Colosseum.

              Her two extended multi-year residencies, with a break between them, covered about 12 years and more than 1,100 performances, mostly sold out. But most importantly, she made Las Vegas a place to take a trip to see a concert, rather than a place to go and catch a concert if it coincided with your visit. Dion’s success spawned multiple similar residencies at Caesars and other properties by A-List acts like Aerosmith, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Carlos Santana and many others, changing the longstanding industry touring paradigm of bringing live music to people all over the country to one of bringing people from all over the country to Las Vegas.

              Dion’s model has also trickled over into big touring concerts and sporting events, making Las Vegas an important stop on nationwide and international arena tours. When the T-Mobile Arena opened in 2016, the first weekend saw the two-night kickoff of the massively high-profile Guns N’ Roses reunion tour, and ever since, fans have made it a point to book a trip to see their favorite band when it stops on the Strip. Ditto for sports, with hockey and football fans making away pilgrimages to see their home teams play the Las Vegas Golden Knights (NHL) or Raiders (NFL) and combine the event with all the other excitement and entertainment travelers love in the city – including music residencies. At the Colosseum built to the specifications of her show, Dion’s influence continues in full force, with current and upcoming residencies in her footsteps including Usher, Sting, Morrissey and Reba, Brooks & Dunn.

              As high-profile travel industry publication Travel Weekly wrote at the end of her last performances in 2019, “Celine’s influence on the Vegas scene can’t be overstated… Put her right up there with Fran Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Liberace and Elvis Presley. Celine Dion is no less a transcendent figure in Las Vegas entertainment history… Her success ushered in a distinctly new era in which artists at the apex of their popularity have chosen to set up residencies or extended engagements on the Las Vegas Strip.”

              Now the Queen of the Las Vegas music scene is coming back. As vaccination rates continue to rise and travel returns, Vegas has been seeing a big uptick in bookings after more than a year of sluggish reservations, closed theaters and pent-up demand. By this fall, the return to normalcy may be nearly complete, a fitting time for Dion to kick off the entertainment offerings at the city’s newest mega-casino hotel on the Strip, Resorts World Las Vegas, a massive project that has been under construction for years and is scheduled to open the end of next month (June 24, 2021).

              “We’re so happy that Celine has decided to return to Las Vegas in this beautiful new theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas.” said John Meglen President and Co-CEO of Concerts West, “and even more that she will be joined in the rotation by some of the greatest performing talent today: Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry! This is a legendary lineup.”

              The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas is a brand-new, multi-level venue, a joint development between Resorts World Las Vegas and Concerts West /AEG Presents. It claims to feature Las Vegas’ largest and tallest performance stage, with the furthest seat just 150 feet away, boasting unobstructed sightlines and an immersive audio experience via 265 L-Acoustics speakers with L-ISA hyperreal technology.

              Resorts World Las Vegas will be a 3,500-room luxury destination, and global music stars Dion, Underwood, Perry and Bryan will be the founding headliners at the 5,000-seat venue. The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas will open its doors in November 2021, and fittingly kicks off with Celine Dion’s high-profile return to Las Vegas, featuring an all-new show and opening night performance to benefit COVID-19 Relief on Friday, November 5. Dion will do ten shows in November (5-6, 9-10, 12-13, 16-17, 19-20), followed by Carrie Underwood’s six-show run beginning December 1 (1, 3-4, 8, 10-11). Katy Perry rings in 2022 with an eight-show run launching on December 29, highlighted by exclusive New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day performances (December 29, 31 and January 1, 7-8, 12, 14-15, 2022). Luke Bryan kicks off his six-show engagement beginning on February 11, 2022 (11-12, 16, 18, 19, 20).

              Tickets, plus VIP and premium ticket packages, for all 30 shows by the four performers go on sale to the general public online on Monday, May 24 at 10AM. PST.

              However, finical institution Citi is the official presale credit card of the headliner engagements, and Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase presale tickets a week earlier, from Tuesday, May 18 at 10AM PST to Sunday, May 23 at 10 PM PST through the Citi Entertainment program.

              Viva Las Vegas!

              Nothing we didn’t already know but lovely to see such nice words about her impact and influence.

                          My show in DC has now been delayed by over 2 years. Such BS. All because of Vegas and low ticket sales in my opinion.

                            November shows cancelled and rescheduled for February 2022.

                            As Celine Dion has been preparing for the November 5 opening of her brand-new show in the beautiful, new Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas, unforeseen medical symptoms have forced the singer to delay the opening and cancel the performances scheduled from November 5 to 20, 2021 and January 19 to February 5, 2022.

                            Celine has been experiencing severe and persistent muscle spasms which are preventing her from performing. Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat her. However, the symptoms she is experiencing are prohibiting her from participating in the ongoing rehearsals for the new show.

                            “I’m heartbroken by this,” said Celine. “My team and I have been working on our new show for the past eight months, and to not be able to open this November saddens me beyond words. My partners at Resorts World Las Vegas and AEG have been working around the clock to get this brand-new state-of-the-art theatre ready, and it's absolutely beautiful. I feel so bad that I'm letting them down, and I’m especially sorry for disappointing all the fans who’ve been making their plans to come to Las Vegas. Now, I have to focus on getting better… I want to get through this as soon as I can.”

                            “Celine is family to us, and the most important thing now is for her to focus on feeling better,“ said John Meglen, President and Co-CEO of Concerts West/AEG Presents. “In our two-decade long relationship with Celine, we’ve certainly learned how dedicated and resilient she is, and that she is most happy when she’s on stage doing what she loves most, performing for her fans. We’re ready to announce new Las Vegas show dates whenever Celine is ready.”

                            “If there’s anything these trying times have taught us, it’s that nothing is more important than your wellbeing,” said Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas. “While we are eager to debut the theatre, we support Celine in what we know was an incredibly difficult decision to delay her shows. On behalf of the entire Resorts World Las Vegas family, we wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to welcoming her to her new home when she feels ready and able to perform again.

                              Doesn't the press release just say that the shows scheduled, (the 21 announced dates from 5 Nov to 20 November, and from 19 January to 5 February) are canceled??

                                Oh gosh, you’re right - it’s outfight cancellation, I misread it.

                                Hope she’s okay.

                                  They wouldn't cancel January shows unless it's really serious. I hope she recovers fully soon and comes back stronger than ever.

                                    I hope she’s okay. That’s quite the cancellation unless they’re also massively behind, but if they are that suggests it’s been going on for a while.
