Celine Dion Las Vegas Residency Return – Watch Rene Angelil Tribute Concert
Celine Dion will return to her Las Vegas residency on Tuesday for her first concert since husband Rene Angelil’s death, and Gossip Cop has a live stream. Watch below.
As Gossip Cop has reported, Angelil died on January 14 at age 73 after a long battle with cancer. Dion immediately postponed her upcoming concerts. Tragically, just two days later, Dion suffered a second loss when her brother Daniel also died of cancer.
Before Angelil’s funeral, Gossip Cop exclusively debunked a report falsely claiming she was planning to perform at the service. It was neither the time nor the place. Dion, however, returned to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, the site of her residency, earlier this month.
A special tribute, called a “Celebration of Life,” was held in Angelil’s honor. Again, Dion did not sing, although she sat on stage for the duration of the event and gave a moving speech. Instead, there were musical interludes and a performance by David Foster.
Now Dion will publicly sing her first note since her heartbreaking loss. The superstar’s stage show was heavily conceived by her late husband, who served as her manager until his illness forced him to step down. In his honor, Dion’s concert tonight is expected to start with a 10-minute tribute.
It’s unclear if any other portions of the show have been changed, but it will no doubt be an emotional evening. The live stream is slated to begin at 10:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Watch below.
