I hate the fact that she doesn't give a f about the acute accent of her given name. It's Céline, not Celine.

And that is why I won't attend, goodbye.
"You are Beyoncé!"

Tokyo Dome page (in Wikipedia) says Céline will do two shows on June 26 and 27. Is the second show happening?

This will gross very similar to Madonna's Rebel Heart in Asia.
Some of the gross will be astronomical like Macau ,for example.
I'm sure she'll add more dates in Japan.

I’ve never seen Celine live and I absolutely must as 1/3 of the Vocal Goddesses.

Is this tour going to be limited to Asia or is there hope to expand?

Jakarta ticket prices announced.

Cheapest tickets cost $112.5 and most expensive tickets cost almost $900 (front row).

Extortionate prices IMO - $900 is...

Her team are apparently currently in negotiations for Australia and New Zealand.

In addition to that, it's rumoured that she might be doing something in Europe to coincide with her new album - but nothing confirmed yet.

Insane prices! :o I was even thinking on going to one of the dates and take the chance to visit since I've never been in Asia but I couldn't afford the trip and also good seats. Let's hope the rumored Europe dates are true (but I doubt it).

Hopefully she does get to come to Europe again for a show or two and I’m actually there this time. We always miss each other :lol:

Celine Dion's Jakarta concert ticket price reaches Rp 25m ($1,872)

The ticket prices for Celine Dion’s upcoming concert in Jakarta have reportedly reached Rp 25 million (US$1,872) excluding tax and administration fees.

Previously it was announced that the Emerald category, which is supposedly the most prominent category in the concert, would cost "only" Rp 12.5 million.

The Rp 25 million ticket appears on the ticket seller's website as a reservation-only Diamond category, which was not listed on the concert's poster.

Other categories available for fans seeking to watch Dion's live performance are Sapphire, Ruby, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Green. Several of these were reportedly already fully booked when this article was being written, such as Ruby A1, A3 as well as B1, Bronze A1, Green A2 and Green B2. The pre-sales tickets for Green A1 and B1 are said to have already sold out.

Despite the extraordinary high price of the tickets, netizens were nonetheless excited to have the opportunity to watch the songstress of “My Heart Will Go On”.

Try Tokyo, it's not expensive compared with the other countries. I will probably buy one :)

See here: https://ibb.co/iN2a9G

Resale prices are...just wow.

Apparently, the Philippines date has around 800 tickets left after the first day on sale (the venue holds 16,000, implying she's probably sold well in excess of 10-12k tickets so far).

the 16,000 capacity figure is a bit too high for the Manila venue. here are some attendance figures from semi-recent memory:

Gaga (2 shows): 18,915 / 18,915 (9,458 each)
Madonna (2 shows): 15,710 / 15,710 (7,855 each)
Maroon 5: 11,407 / 11,407
Rihanna: 8,118 / 9,743

Amazingly, some Celine fan has found that in the coding of http://www.celinedion.com :lol:

Apparently, Sydney show is confirmed - but they are waiting to announce the date and venue until the general sale for the Asian dates has commenced.

Apparently, Taiwanese media have reported that when the general sale opened yesterday, more than 300,000 people tried to get tickets and crashed the site. Due to demand, promoters are trying to get an extra date.
