Celine Dion takes her final bow at Caesars Palace

I am a fan of Celine Dion, she got a beautiful voice and can sing effortlessly..:) I think when she rest enough, will probably have an album out in future. Any one in the States ever catch her shows?


LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AP) -- Caesar will have to find a new queen.

Celine Dion throws rose petals after her final performance of "A New Day" at Caesars Palace on Saturday.

Celine Dion called it a wrap at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last night after a five-year engagement.

During the farewell show, she disclosed that poor reviews and a pregnancy early on nearly sank the project. But she said it's been worth it.

Adoring fans cheered, stood and clapped throughout the show, as Dion interspersed her usual numbers with emotion-filled monologues.

She said of the early going, "At one point, it was like feeling like the Titanic was about to sink again."

While the Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, show was still in development in 2000, Dion became pregnant and wanted to bow out. She says she felt she had a life "for the first time" and wanted more to be a successful mother than a singer.

But her husband, who's also her manager, told her that too much money and too many people were involved. So she pushed on, filling the 4,100-seat arena at Caesars nearly nightly for five years.

Between March 2003 and last night, Celine Dion's show was seen by nearly 3 million fans and took in more than $400 million.
