A new day has come for Céline Dion and it’s full of dollar signs.
The 51-year-old five-time Grammy winner ended her 16-year Las Vegas residency last weekend, and now that the dust has settled, the numbers are in. Spoiler alert: They’re astounding.
According to Billboard, Dion’s two residencies, A New Day (2003-2007) and Céline (2011-19) are going down in history as the two highest-grossing and best-selling Las Vegas residencies in history. So how much money are we talking? The shows amassed a casual $681.3 million combined, which boils down to 4,555,752 tickets. Hot damn.
Dion closed the book on her long-term residency at Caesar’s Palace this past Saturday and while the goodbye was bittersweet, she did leave fans with a parting gift. The “My Heart Will Go On” singer debuted a very fitting song called “Flying on My Own.”
