Celine Dion Announces Her New Album, Loved Me Back To Life, To Be Released Nov. 5

COLUMBIA RECORDS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF
LOVED ME BACK TO LIFE, THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM INTERNATIONAL ICON CELINE DION
celine dion loved me back to life

 

CELINE DION’S LOVED ME BACK TO LIFE
AVAILABLE IN THE U.S. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5

 

LISTEN TO NEW SINGLE TODAY AT CELINEDION.COM




Columbia Records is thrilled to announce the North American release of Loved Me Back To Life, the highly anticipated new album from multi-platinum-selling and five-time Grammy Award-winning musical legend Celine Dion. Loved Me Back To Life, Dion’s first English-language album in six years, will be released in the U.S. Tuesday, November 5 on Columbia Records (see track list below).

The album’s pulsating, upbeat first single, also titled “Loved Me Back To Life,” is available digitally today. Pre-order the album at CelineDion.com, iTunes, and Amazon. Dion will perform “Loved Me Back To Life” live on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Friday, September 6 and on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next Wednesday, September 11. Listen to “Loved Me Back To Life” on CelineDion.com now.

Loved Me Back To Life offered Dion the chance to work with a team of exceptional producers and songwriters including Ne-Yo, Diane Warren, Tricky Stewart, Stevie Wonder, Eg White, Daniel Merriweather, Babyface, Audra Mae Butts, Play Production, Eman, Janis Ian, Danny Mercer, Andrew Goldstein, Shaffer Smith, Jessi Alexander, Tommy Lee James, Corparal, Sauce, Kyle Townsend, Dana Parish, Andrew Hollander, Aaron Pearce, Kuk Harrell, and Walter Afanasieff. The album’s single and title track was written by Sham & Motesart and Sia. In addition, Ne-Yo and Stevie Wonder lend their incredible talents as Dion’s duet partners.

In December of 2007, Dion concluded an unprecedented concert engagement in Las Vegas—five consecutive years of sold-out shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, a $100 million venue built exclusively for her performances. This historic, original show, entitled “A New Day…”, was one of the highest grossing concerts in music history, selling more than 3 million tickets in its run and helping make Dion the highest-grossing touring artist in the world from 2000 to 2010. In 2011, Celine returned to The Colosseum with a brand-new critically-acclaimed show, simply entitled “Celine,” playing to sold-out audiences since opening night. This spectacular show, which will continue for several years to come, features Dion’s greatest hits, some surprising covers, and a few songs featured on Loved Me Back To Life, including the title track.

Tickets for Celine’s 29 performances from Dec. 30, 2013 to March 19, 2014 are now onsale. Ticket prices are $55, $95, $140, $175 and $250, plus applicable fees, and may be purchased by calling 877.4CELINE or 888.9.AXS.TIX, online at www.thecolosseum.com or www.celineinvegas.com or in person at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Box Office open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. For groups of 10 or more, call 1-866-574-3851.

Having sold more than 220 million albums around the world, Celine Dion is one of the most immediately recognized, widely respected and successful performers in pop music history. In addition to numerous U.S. and international gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications, Celine Dion has seen two of her albums—Falling Into You and Let’s Talk About Love—each achieve RIAA Diamond status in recognition of sales of more than 10 million copies in the U.S. alone (each selling more than 30 million worldwide). She has been awarded five Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “My Heart Will Go On” in 1998, Album of the Year and Best Pop Album for Falling Into You in 1996, and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for “Beauty and the Beast” in 1992.

The Colosseum at Caesars is Named Top Venue at 2011 Billboard Touring Awards

THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE NAMED TOP VENUE
AT 2011 BILLBOARD TOURING AWARDS

Sixth Consecutive Win for World-Class Venue

 

For the sixth consecutive year (dating back to 2005 when the category was first introduced), The Colosseum at Caesars Palace has been named Top Venue Under 5,000 seats at the recent 2011 Billboard Touring Awards.  The annual award was based on global box office numbers reported to Billboard Boxscore from Oct. 1, 2010, through Sept. 30, 2011.

 
The ongoing success of the world-class venue can be credited to the stellar entertainers that grace the stage of The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and the distinctive artist residency model featuring the greatest entertainers in the world, including: Celine Dion, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Shania Twain (who begins her run on Dec. 1, 2012).
 
In 2011, The Colosseum at Caesars Palace was home to Cher’s sell-out run of the final shows of her three-year residency, (which culminated in February), along with the first year of 54 sold-out performances of Celine Dion’s triumphant return that began in March.  In August, Rod Stewart kicked off the first two runs of sell-out performances of his two-year residency of Rod Stewart: The Hits. and in September Elton John returned for his second residency at The Colosseum with the premiere of his sold-out run of The Million Dollar Piano.  
 
The Colosseum is booked and operated by AEG Live. “The past year has been very strong for The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.  In addition to opening productions with the newest resident performers-Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Elton John- we also announced the addition of Shania Twain to the lineup which begins in December 2012,” said John Meglen, president and co-CEO of AEG Live/Concerts West. “This rotation along with presenting top-notch touring performers gives us the ability to offer an unforgettable entertainment experience to nearly every visitor to Las Vegas. Our ability to attract the biggest, most diverse group of international superstars is one of the reasons people love to visit The Colosseum.”

 
“Celine Dion had a triumphant return to The Colosseum, ushering in a whole new era of top-shelf entertainment for the venue and, frankly, the city of Las Vegas, “ added Gary Selesner, president of Caesars Palace. “Opening March 15, 2011, Celine’s first 20 shows grossed more than $14M, and we saw a ripple effect from those ticket sales by way of increased hotel revenue at Caesars Palace.”
 

Other entertainers who helped make The Colosseum at Caesars Palace a number-one venue in 2011 include Jerry Seinfeld, Luis Miguel, Jeff Dunham, Diana Ross, Leonard Cohen, Stevie Nicks, and Janet Jackson. 

Tickets are available for upcoming performances at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace including;
 
  •        Sting – Nov. 25
  •        Janet Jackson – Nov. 26
  •        Jeff Dunham – Dec. 2 – 3
