Celine Dion announces Asia-Pacific tour including Manila date

The "Because You Loved Me" singer acted as a mediator between concerned security guards and the excited fan at the Las Vegas concert on January 5.

Announced on her website, the tour begins June 26 at the Tokyo Dome and wraps July 23 at Bangkok's Impact Arena. "I can't wait. Come on, Lady Gaga, we're waiting for you!"

In a video message posted on her social media accounts, legendary Canadian singer Celine Dion announced that she will be touring the Asia Pacific region from June to August.

She now has an ongoing Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, where she has played over 1,000 shows to over 4 million fans. Since then, she has gone on to garner critical acclaim, especially for her 1996 album Falling into You.

Dion, who is most known for the theme song from the movie Titanic, "My Heart Will Go On", held a concert in Kuala Lumpur as part of her Taking Chances World Tour in 2008.




Right before coming to Singapore, she will be performing in Tokyo and Macao for the first time in 10 years.

"I love you, you love me", Dion starts singing, trying to detract from the freakish moment.

"If I may apologize again to the fans that I had to cancel the tour. But now, we're gonna have a fun time", she said.

She is the voice behind smash hits such as My Heart Will Go On and Because You Loved Me, and will be entertaining audiences at the 6,000-capacity Sands Grand Ballroom over the two nights.

She said: "First of all, this girl knows exactly what she's doing".
