Despite windy weather that delayed her schedule by a few hours, superstar Celine Dion greeted fans upon her arrival at Caesars Palace today in preparation for the March 15 premiere of her three-year engagement at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, a venue that was built for her and that has since been the resident home of Sir Elton John, Cher and Bette Midler.
Hundreds of fans, plus Mr. Vegas DeLuxe Robin Leach and Senior Editor John Katsilometes of The Kats Report, turned out to see the five-time Grammy Award winner, who is returning after her A New Day ... Live in Las Vegas run from 2003 to 2007 in which she was seen by more than 3 million people and grossed more than $400 million in many sold-out shows at The Colosseum. Dion arrived with her husband and manager Rene Angelil, son Rene-Charles and twins Eddy and Nelson.
Thanks to Brian Jones of Las Vegas News Bureau for these preview photos. Check back right here at LasVegasSun.com tomorrow for Mr. Leach’s interview with Dion, photo galleries of the much-anticipated arrival and additional coverage.
