Celine Dion to take ‘Courage’ on the road through 2020

Our hearts may go on, but Celine Dion is making sure that we never forget where it all started. On Thursday (April 3), the Canadian singer announced plans to embark on a massive world tour that will find her performing across the globe through 2020. Dubbed the “Courage” world tour, Dion revealed her first set of tour dates which include stops in the United States and Canada.

The North American leg of the gigantic outing kicks off with a two-night engagement at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City on Sept. 18 and Sept. 20. The first part of the North American leg concludes on Dec. 13 at the TD Garden in Boston. After a few weeks off for the holidays, the tour will resume on Jan. 8, 2020, at the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla. and ends three-and-a-half months later on April 27, 2020, at the Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg.

“I’m so grateful to all the fans who have come to see my show in Las Vegas for so many years, and now I get the chance to create a brand new show and bring it to them in North America, and around the world,” the singer said in a statement. “I’m very excited about this tour.”

General ticket sales for Dion’s shows through her stop at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh begin next Friday, April 12. Pre-sales for TeamCeline members and American Express Cardmembers begin Monday, April 8. All tickets purchased for the “Courage” world tour comes with a copy of Dion’s forthcoming English album, Courage. Though the musician has yet to confirm a release date for the record, she did say that it will be released in “November.”

The “Courage” world tour marks Dion’s first cross-country excursion in a decade. The North American outing begins several months after Dion’s concludes her long-running Las Vegas residency.

Watch Céline Dion and Deadpool exchange words in ‘Ashes’ video’

What happens when you combine two of Canada’s biggest and best exports (not maple syrup)? One funny music video. On Thursday (May 3), Céline Dion was confirmed as one of the many artists to have a song featured on the upcoming Deadpool 2: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. In conjunction with the announcement, the iconic songstress released the official music video for “Ashes.”

Like most of Dion’s videos, the clip features the singer doing what she does best; singing the ballad inside of a darken theater as footage from the film are interwoven with footage of her singing. The funny moments begins when Deadpool is seen in the same theater on the stage where Dion is currently residing. As she sings the song, the camera follows the anti-superhero as he performs an interpretive dance while in heels.

As if that wasn’t funny enough, just wait until the end of the clip when Dion and the Merc with a Mouth have a little bit of an exchange of words. Just keep an eye out for “beat it, Spider-Man!” Watch the music video for “Ashes” above.

In addition to Dion’s new song, the 12-track soundtrack will also include a new song from French Montana titled “Welcome to the Party” featuring  Diplo, Lil Pump and Zhavia Ward. The film’s soundtrack will also feature songs from DJ Shadow and Run the Jewels, Peter Gabriel, a-ha, Cher, Dolly Parton, Air Supply, Pat Benatar, Alicia Morton, and Skrillex.

Deadpool 2: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is due out on May 18, the same day the film will invade theaters. Check out the full soundtrack song list below.
