Here’s Why Céline Dion Is Ending Her Vegas Residency After Nearly 2 Decades

by Madison Vanderberg

After nearly two decades of performing in Las Vegas, and paving the way for a generation of singers to set down roots there, Céline Dion is saying goodbye to her Vegas residency.

The iconic singer will play the last Céline show at Caesars Palace on June 8, 2019.

Though we’re not shocked that someone would want to move on after 20 years of performing the same songs, Céline shared a statement on Facebook with her fans explaining her decision.

“I definitely have mixed emotions about this final run,” she wrote. “Las Vegas has become my home and performing at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace has been a big part of my life for the past two decades.

It’s been an amazing experience and I’m so grateful to all the fans who have come to see us throughout the years. Every show we do at the Colosseum throughout this fall, and right up until the final one, will feel very special.”

Since her 2003 Vegas debut, Céline took one three-year break when she worked out a new residency. A New Day ran from 2003 to 2007, and then she launched Céline in 2011.

Tickets for the final run of shows will go on sale this Friday, September 28, on her website.
