Celine Dion is returning to the Las Vegas Strip to begin a three-year run at Caesars Palace.
The Grammy award-winning singer announced that she will return to the 4,300-seat Colosseum - home of her previous show, A New Day - in March 2011.
Celine said the new show will feature songs ranging from timeless classics to fan favourites, with a concept incorporating the romance of classic movies, adding: "It's going to be a very beautiful show, and I think we'll be raising the bar higher than we've ever done before - there'll be some truly wonderful moments."
The show grossed more than 400 million dollars and was seen by nearly three million fans over five years before closing in December 2007.
The new show begins on March 15, 2011, with tickets for the first 54 performances going on sale on Friday. Officials say ticket prices will range from 55 dollars to 250 dollars before taxes and fees.
The 41-year-old Canadian singer spent a year on an international tour after her previous Las Vegas show ended, and plans to spend the year before her Sin City return with her family.
She has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide and won five Grammy awards.
Two songs recorded by Celine have won Academy Awards for best original song, including the title song of Beauty And The Beast and My Heart Will Go On from Titanic.
