Pop diva Celine Dion will be making her debut in Singapore this year.

The 49-year-old Canadian singer, known for her powerhouse vocals, will perform at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) on July 3 and 4.

She is the voice behind smash hits such as My Heart Will Go On and Because You Loved Me, and will be entertaining audiences at the 6,000-capacity Sands Grand Ballroom over the two nights.

Ticket sale dates and prices have yet to be announced, but a press statement from MBS yesterday said members of her fan club TeamCeline will be able to buy tickets through an advance pre-sale.

It will kick off in Tokyo on June 26 before heading to Macau, Jakarta, Taipei, Manila and Bangkok.

This will be the five-time Grammy Award winner’s first visit to Asia since the Taking Chances World Tour in 2008, which included stops such as Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai and Seoul.

Dion’s planned 2014 Asia tour was cancelled as she took time off to care for her ailing husband and manager Rene Angelil, who died of cancer in 2016.

The Singapore concerts are part of MBS’ Sands Live, a concert series that has brought in acts such as The Rolling Stones, Michael Buble and Aaron Kwok since it started in 2014.
