      • Regarding the Louisville show, going by the numbers of available tickets posted a month ago, she sold 1,000 out of 2,000 tickets. That's good considering that she is living off her 90s glory days, 20 years ago. Probably media exposure (album release) could have made her sell those 1,000 tickets needed for a sell-out. That's the disadvantage of scheduling it before Nov. 15.

                          She was amazing in Montreal from what I have seen of the concert. I wish she would do Falling in love again. That track gives me chills.

                          • I'm glad she ditched "Laying Down" and put "Imperfections" instead.

                            Comment


                            • Laying Down is my fave off the new album so im sad its gone. In reality, all 4 prerelease tracks should be there.

                                • Céline Dion at the Bell Centre: ‘It feels so good to be home’

                                  The 16,500 in attendance gave Dion a full-throated two-minute standing ovation before she even sang a note.


                                  Pop icon Céline Dion ended her 16-year residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in June. But if there is another city that could host a residency, it is surely Montreal, in Dion’s hometown province.

                                  Monday night, Dion — fully recovered from a throat virus that forced her to reschedule the Montreal concerts on her Courage World Tour — headlined the first of six highly anticipated concerts at the Bell Centre.

                                  “This is a dream come true,” Dion told the cheering crowd in French, apologizing for the concert postponements. “Most of our team is from Montreal. The show is doing very well on the road, but this is where we want to be.”

                                  If fans were upset about the concert postponements, all was forgiven last night: The 16,500 in attendance gave Dion a full-throated two-minute standing ovation before she even sang a note.

                                  The enthusiastic reception speaks volumes about the cult of Céline in this city. Montreal’s diva-worshipping gay community was also out in full force, just days after Dion’s surprise karaoke performance at the Lips drag-queen bar in New York City last week went viral on the web.

                                  Backed by a polished 17-piece band – including a string section, horn section and three backup vocalists who could match Céline chop-for-chop — the fist-pumping Dion performed a bilingual, two-hour, 24-song set.

                                  Dion delivered authentic, vocally flawless renditions of her greatest hits, opening with her 1996 smash hit It’s All Coming Back to Me Now. She mixed English-language chart-toppers like I’m Alive, Power of Love and Beauty and the Beast with such French-language hits as S’il suffisait d’aimer, her 1993 gay anthem Un garçon pas comme les autres (Ziggy) and Pour que tu m’aimes encore.

                                  When Dion sang All By Myself, she hit that famous high note with such ferocity and intensity she raised the cheering audience to their feet mid-song. Visibly moved, Dion said, “It feels so good to be home.”

                                  Dion also seamlessly mixed the old with the new, singing Courage, the uplifting title track of the album that signals a new and exciting chapter for Dion since the death of her husband, René Angelil, in 2016.

                                  “Do not be afraid to express your choices,” Dion encouraged the audience as she showcased her five daring wardrobe choices centre stage, notably a red gown by Yousef Aljasmi to open the show, and a bell-bottomed silver jumpsuit by Michael Costello during an extended concert-closing five-song medley that included a supersonic cover of Tina Turner’s River Deep, Mountain High and a French-language version of Lady Marmelade (in a thoughtful tip of the hat to Quebec music legend Nanette Workman).

                                  Céline returned for two encores, wearing a corseted white-tulle fabric gown by designer Zac Posen while singing a show-stopping version of My Heart Will Go On as dozens of tiny drones twinkled above Céline and the stage like fireflies. Visually and musically, a memorable piece of theatre.

                                  With Courage and her first world tour in a decade, Dion has shown herself to be a most remarkable survivor of the great diva era of the 1990s.

                                  AT A GLANCE

                                  Céline Dion’s Courage World Tour headlines the Bell Centre for five additional performances, November 19, 21 and 22, and February 18 and 19, 2020. For tickets, visit evenko.ca.

                                  https://montrealgazette.com/entertai...ood-to-be-home
                                  Another great review, The Bell Centre is a remarkable venue for Celine.

                                  She's got 6 shows there on this tour and she will have performed there a record-breaking 47 times (by the end of this tour).

                                  I think her gross is probably going to be $55-58m from 2008-present and then she performed there 21 times during the 90s which is probably another $15-$20m for a total lifetime gross of between $70-$75m from one venue, insane!

                                          She has ignored us in each and every one of her European tours.
                                          All her albums from TCOML to Taking Chances were Gold, Platinum or Multiplatinum here. She'll obviously sell out one or two dates. Don't get it.
                                          Which is confusing. Spain is very profitable when it Comes to touring. I also don't understand why she didn't just book 75 stadiums instead of touring for 2 years

                                                    These newer dates are MUCH better - her average of almost $1.8m per show is really good considering how much lower some of the smaller markets are.

                                                            It’s a promoter reported number to Billboard - and the same rules apply to every single box score ever produced by any artist.

                                                            I don’t think it really matters ultimately.

                                                              I don’t think it really matters ultimately.
                                                              Correct! It really doesn't, some people think that this has been going on rather recently but it's been done since forever (I recall as far back as the 70s) and no one batted an eye back then
