Legends I've Seen: Celine Dion


Legend:
Celine Dion

Number of Concerts I've Attended:
One in Las Vegas. The Colosseum at Caesars Palace cost $95 million to build for Dion’s show. Her contract was for $100 million (not bad for five years work).

The show grossed over $400 million, was seen by nearly 3 million fans and Dion performed it 717 times. It was recently announced that she’s going back for 3 more years (and probably another $100 million).

Iconic Moment:
Celine singing My Heart Will Go On (Theme from Titanic).

Good for you, Michael! I saw Ms. Dion in January '09. And oh, that VOICE! It just never stops. It's hard to believe after so many shows and after so many years, it's still just a beautiful.

She definitely is not doing it for the money now - she's doing it because she LOVES it!

And she's a tiny little sprite in person. I guess on TV everyone looks bigger than they really are.

I bet the "My Heart Will Go On" moment was magical!

Paul Benjamin said...

I have never seen her in concert, but I would give my right nut to watch her sing My Heart Will Go On! haha

I must admit I am not a huge fan of her genre of music but she is an incredible talent and a fellow Canadian too, woot woot! ox AJ

Not one of my favorites, but her voice is amazing and she's a great entertainer.

I saw her live years ago in Montreal when was still singing in French only, and then again a few years ago -- astounding voice in person, though I could live without the chest thumping -- didnt SNL parody that at some point?

Small person, big lungs!!!

The Daily Connoisseur said...

Wow that is a lot of money! I've never seen Celine... you are very lucky!

Ray's Cowboy said...

Would love to try to be that rich. I enjoy her music very much. Can you believe someone would make something for a person to have for many years.

Okay, shame on me. I am Canadian and I am not too keen on Celine. So sorry, however, there is one song that I love "Power of Love" I think is the title. Goosebumps when I hear it.

WOW! So rich!

Just thinking, that you have seen/met a lot of famous people ... Therefore you probably can be linked to Kevin Bacon ... Seeing as I know you ... then I too have a link to Kevin Bacon. "Hell!" Soon the whole world will be linked to Kevin Bacon. Wow!!! lol

Have never seen her. Bette Midler took over for her in Vegas. Have you seen her? I haven't seen here there but have many times.

Doug Goff said...

I've never seen her in person but in my opinion she's worth every penny. Many people have gone to Vegas specifically just to see her so I can see why they would want to sign her again.

I am a huge fan of Celine and was disappointed that I wasn't able to get to Vegas to see her. However I would like to bring to the attention of her fans that a DVD has been released of the entire concert. Also, it contains alot of extras including a fascinating look at what goes on backstage during the concert.

Jan said...

I do think she's a good singer - just not my sort of music.
Everything is always better live though. x

Gay Guy said...

I didn't get to see Celine when I was in Vegas a few years ago. She was off and away. I guess everyone needs a vacation, right?

Elton John was the stand in, so how bad could that be.

Good for you , Michael!
Have a great Sunday!

I will probably have my gay card taken away, but I have never been able to take Celine Dion. Her singing is great but I not feeling her and I can't take her attitude at all. She's a bit strange.Can't put my finger on it.

DEZMOND said...

she really is a true talent, we don't have that anymore. I hope she'll release a new album soon.

Kyle said...

Would love to see her. Love her voice. Always have. I couldn't take Stan though. I think he'd strangle her the first chance he could. To say that he doesn't like her, is a terrible understatement.

Davelandweb said...

I cannot stomach her ever since I heard her say on national TV that her singing of the "Titanic" theme song was more emotional because she was having her period when she sang it.

Gropius said...

Love her dress, her music...hmmmm...
