Dion thrived, Katsilometes said, pulling in roughly $700,000,000 during her 16-year stint in ticket sales alone.

"You didn't disappoint us".

"A lot of performers would come here just to perform nostalgia shows", Katsilometes said, "they weren't really that relevant commercially or artistically, but Celine was and still is".

She went on to say that she never imagined she would be performing her residency for so long.

The post Céline Dion Brings Her Kids on Stage, Pays Tribute to Her Husband in Final Vegas Show appeared first on The Blast. "Maybe we have saved the best for last", she added.

"I have been waiting for a long, long time for".

The superstar will embark on her 50-city Courage World Tour this fall, starting September 18 in Quebec City, and its accompanying new album is set for release in November.

"I'm both proud and humbled by what we've accomplished at the Colosseum since we began 16 years ago when Rene and I first shared this dream", she smiled.

Angelil was the star's manager for much of her career.
