Celine Dion is ending her Las Vegas residency by releasing new music and embarking on a new world tour later this year.

The Courage World Tour is set to kickoff in Quebec City, Canada, on September 18, and will make stops in more than 50 cities including Miami, Los Angeles, Montreal, Chicago and Brooklyn.


The singer announced the world tour during a Facebook live event Wednesday along with a short video chronicling her Vegas show that she is saying goodbye to June 8.

“It’s going to be the Celine that you know,” she said of the upcoming album. “Celine at 51. The Celine that you know. The Celine with producers and writers she’s worked with. It’s the Celine with new producers and new songwriters. … The sound will change a little bit, and music changes. But I will always remain who I am,” Dion stated.

After the announcement, Celine performed favorites like “I’m Alive” and “My Heart Will Go On” after making the announcement during a special a special fan event at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

The Grammy winner said for the first time she felt recently motivated since the death of her husband-manager René Angélil in 2016.

Dion called Vegas her “second home” but is ready for a new venture. The star said she feels “more centered, balanced and spiritually connected” these days. The Courage Tour will be Celine’s first North American tour since her Taking Chances World Tour in 2009.

“I was supposed to be at Caesars for a few months and sixteen years later, I’m on the road and album coming out,” she said. “I cannot feel stronger than I feel here. I’m finding passion, finding my team, in control, in charge, feeling strong and healthy. I take care of myself. I’m happy.”
