Musical diva extraordinaire Celine Dion officially opens her new big-event show, Celine, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas tonight. Can you even handle your excitement?!? By several accounts, like this recent one in Newsweek that asks the question “Can Celine Dion Save Las Vegas?” in its headline, Dion’s return to Vegas is literally seen as a second coming and reason enough for a resort city that suffers from 14 percent unemployment to hope again.

And why wouldn’t there be hope for Celine, considering all that her last razzle-dazzle Las Vegas outing, A New Day..., was? Do you remember the hubbub around it? Literally, she began the show on March 2003, in a 4,000-seat area that was specifically built for her show. Opening night was attended by stars as illustrious as Dick Clark, Kathy Griffin, and Justin Timberlake. She regularly sold out the show through the end of its run in late 2007. Ticket prices averaged $135.33! So You Think You Can Dance‘s Mia Michaels choreographed the show! She sang her hits! The whole thing grossed $400 million by the end of its run, with nearly 3 millions fans attending. What more could you want?

If history tells us anything it’s that Celine will be a smashing success, without question. Dion has already promised that the show will feature, in addition to some music from classic Hollywood films, “all the songs from my repertoire that people want to hear.” How could “The Power of Love” or “My Heart Will Go On” do Sin City wrong? You’re right: They can’t. Are you excited for Celine’s return to Vegas? Will you attend? Sound off below.

    Yes! Love her shows

  • Joe

    Already have my tickets for July! Missed the first show so I’m glad she made a return.

    • Cindy

      @Joe, I feel so bad you didn’t get to see “A New Day”. I was breathtaking. I live in Massachusetts and made the trip to Vegas 11 times and saw the show AT LEAST twice each trip. I can’t wait to see this new one!

  • Dan

    Wouldn’t have planned Vegas without her….

  • Marc

    The boys and I are already in process of planning our August trip to see her! Money will flow again in Vegas!

  • John

    Half of the time, when EW writes about Dion, I can’t tell if the articles are sincere or ironic…

    • WhiteLightning

      I thought they were being sarcastic, until I saw other people’s comments. I can’t believe people give a crap about Celine Dion anymore.

      • annie

        She ain’t crap! She has class.

  • Bobby

    We’ll be seeing her in the fall. I can’t wait and no, we wouldn’t be going to Vegas if she hadn’t returned.

  • Summer

    I would love to go!!!! She’s been my favorite singer since i was a kid, when i first heard her sing My Heart Will Go On. Now i have a reason to go to Vegas

  • jk

    No. I spent a fortune on her last show. I sat in the front section but off to the side section. She only played to middle of the stage. I looked at the side of her face for the whole show. She is a great singer but Never again.

    • Cindy

      @jk…I saw A New Day over 20 times and I can’t imagine how you feel that you feel like she didn’t give face time to all area’s of the stage. She was all over the place every time we saw it.

    • John

      That’s BS. She was all over that huge stage and there was a large screen as big a 6-story building!! If you missed it you were probably passed out… Can’t wait to see the new show. Amazing critics already!

  • msb2118
