Céline Dion has announced her first UK tour in eight years.

The multi-million-selling artist is temporarily leaving her Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace to play four shows in Britain in the summer as part of a series of European concerts.

The tour kicks off on Thursday, June 15, 2017 in the Royal Arena in Copenhagen and continues on to Sweden, England, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland and Germany.

The UK dates are June 20 and 21 at the O2 Arena in London, June 25 at Manchester Arena and she will end the tour with a concert on July 27 at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham.

The My Heart Will Go On singer hasn’t performed in Manchester since her Taking Chances Tour in 2008, after which she has been based in Las Vegas with her long-running residency at The Colosseum in Caesars Palace. During that run, she earned a staggering $476,000 per show!

Commenting on the shows, Céline said: “I am so looking forward to returning to the UK and Europe this summer.

“These wonderful cities hold such special memories for me and I’m really excited to be seeing all my fans again.”
