Celine Dion has announced 2020 Tour- North American ‘Courage World Tour.’ The trek, which launches in the fall, marks the singer’s first U.S. tour run in more than a decade. She announced the news during a Facebook Live event on Wednesday, which featured a short video chronicling the end to her long-running Las Vegas residency. Her last Caesars Palace date is on June 8th.
Courage will be Dion’s second world tour since launching her residency 17 years ago at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace; her 132-show Taking Chances World Tour from 2008 was seen by more than 2.3 million fans and grossed $280 million. Dion holds the Billboard Boxscore record for highest-grossing residency of all time, with her New Day show that ran from 2003 to 2007 earning $385 million in ticket sales while her current residency has reported $245.5 million as of Dec. 2018. That number will likely grow — her Las Vegas residency has 28 final shows at Colosseum this summer.
After more than 15 years, Dion will finish her critically acclaimed Vegas residency at Caesars Palace in June. The singer has toured since starting her Vegas show, but the Courage tour will be her first North American tour since her Taking Chances World Tour in 2009.
Dion called Vegas her second home, but she is ready to take on her new venture. She said don’t expect to see her typical Vegas show on the upcoming tour.
