A few months from now, on December 15th, 2007, Celine will take her final bows on the Colosseum stage at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, where she has enjoyed a record-breaking five-year run of sold-out performances and critical acclaim, with her spectacular show, A New Day... The show has been documented in a deluxe High-Definition DVD, which will be released later this year by Sony BMG Music worldwide. "These past five years have been a wonderful experience for me", says Celine. "To perform every night with such an amazing cast of dancers and musicians on this beautiful show created by Franco Dragone, has been a dream come true. The fans have been so incredibly supportive, coming to see us every night, year after year...it will be difficult to say goodbye, but I'm also ready for the next adventure...I'm looking forward to a new chapter."
On November 13th, 2007 Celine will release "Taking Chances", her first English studio album in over 3 years, and shortly thereafter, tickets will go on sale for her first worldwide tour in 10 years. Celine, who is the biggest selling female artist of all time, selling over 180 million albums, opens her tour on February 14th, 2008 in Johannesburg, South Africa giving a benefit concert for the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund. She does another 7 shows in South Africa during the month of February, contributing additional proceeds from these shows to Mr. Mandela's Children's Fund. From South Africa the tour makes stops in the Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Europe and North America, playing both stadiums and arenas throughout. The year-long tour will visit 5 continents, over 25 countries, and more than 100 cities.
