The summer tour of our Caesars Palace headliner superstar Celine Dion kicked off Monday in Antwerp, Belgium. Celine is ignoring heightened security in Europe due to ISIS terrorists thought to live there en masse.
Forty people were detained and at least 12 terror suspects were arrested last weekend in police raids in Brussels and other Belgium cities, including Antwerp.
Our former Bally’s headliner singing impressionist Veronic is opening for Celine in her 11 concerts in Antwerp and Paris, France, before returning home to Canada for shows in her hometown, Montreal, and Quebec City.
All 11 of Celine’s concerts in Belgium and France are sold out. At her debut in the Sports Palais in Antwerp on Monday, she performed 17 numbers, of which nine were French.
Her setlist, which she’ll use for most of her European tour, ended with “My Heart Will Go On” and include songs she added at the Colosseum last month: “River Deep, Mountain High,” “The Show Must Go On” and “Purple Rain.”

Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
