With a three-decade career and five Grammy awards under her belt, Celine Dion’s Australian tour is one you won’t want to miss.

Celine Dion’s Live 2018 tour will showcase her incredible career and host of hits that have seen her become one of the world’s most recognisable names in music. The tour covers Australia and New Zealand with dates scheduled across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth as well as Auckland – tickets are available here.

It’s been ten years since the powerhouse Canadian singer last performed in Australia, so to celebrate we’ve put together a list of ten Celine Dion songs that we hope to see her belt out on the Live 2018 tour.

1. Immortality

You know you’ve got something special going on when the Bee Gees compose a song specifically for you. They even sung back up for Celine!



2. The Power of Love

Originally a Jennifer Rush song, Power of Love has been covered by Laura Branigan and Air Supply. Celine Dion’s version was released back in 1993 and became her first US number one!



3. It’s All Coming Back to Me Now

When you think ‘90s power ballads, you think of this belter. Written by renowned writer and record producer Jim Steinman, this epic love song is performed to perfection by Dion.



4. My Heart Will Go On

You would struggle to find a person who can’t sing along to this song, which was the theme song for the hit 1997 movie Titanic. Over 50 million copies of My Heart Will Go On were sold worldwide!



5. All By Myself

Did you know this song is a cover? It was originally written and recorded in 1975 by American artist Eric Carmen and has been performed by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Il Divo, as well as Celine Dion of course.



6. Because You Loved Me

A number one hit in Australia, Canada and the United States, Because You Loved Me was the critically acclaimed theme song for 1996 film Up Close & Personal.



7. Tell Him

Barbra Streisand joined forces with Dion for this one. Now that’s a duo.



8. Think Twice

One of Celine Dion’s more rock-inspired songs and even featuring a guitar solo, Think Twice is keeps you coming back for more.



9. Beauty and the Beast

“A tale as old as time…” It seems unlikely that this one will pop up on the tour, but no doubt many Disney lovers would love to hear the Beauty and the Beast theme song live on stage.



10. Falling into You

The title track of Dion’s 1996 album, Falling into You is subtle and stunning – this one would be a great inclusion in the Live 2018 tour.



The sheer vocal power and performance prowess of the one and only Celine Dion should be experienced live in concert. Tickets won’t last long so grab yours here.
