Near, far, wherever you are, a Celine Dion ballad is probably playing because she's an unsinkable French-Canadian hit-making powerhouse whose heart and incredible show-womanship will go on and on.

The incomparable 51-year-old diva is closing the book on a massive eight-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, an endeavor that was arranged by her late husband and longtime manager, René Angélil.

With Sin City in her rearview, Dion can focus on her
"demonic" gender-neutral children's clothing line, her fire Instagram account, shutting down body-shaming trolls, and her latest endeavor as the face of L’Oréal Paris. Oh, and she's giving Vegas the kiss off with her first U.S. tour in more than a decade.

Billed as the Courage World tour, the trek will visit 50 cities and will kick off in Québec City in September. The tour will carry the "The Power of Love" singer through April of 2020 with a stop at Detroit's Little Caesars Arena on Nov. 5. Dion also teased that the tour is also in support of her forthcoming album, due out later this year.

Tickets go on sale starting Friday, April 12 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.
