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.”
