A tribute to Celine Dion’s 13th studio album, D’eux, released in 1995, will be recorded by a number of notable Canadian and European musicians. According to Variety, the tribute to the acclaimed French-language record will be taped on the Agora stage in the Port of Quebec on September 3 and will be shown on M6 Group stations in France and TVA in Quebec. Scott Price, Dion’s current musical director, will be present on stage as part of the homage. Among the musicians participating at the homage will be Véronic DiCaire, Mario Pelchat, Bruno Pelletier, Camille Lellouche, Roch Voisine, Amir, Christophe Willem, and Élodie Frégé.
According to the report, musicians and support vocalists from Celine Dion’s Las Vegas performance will also be involved in the production. Dion canceled all dates for her Courage World Tour in 2023 and 2024 in May. In December 2022, Dion was diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome. The “My Heart Will Go On” singer announced the cancellation of her tour on Instagram. “It is with great sadness that we must announce today the cancellation of the Courage World Tour,” the caption of the post began. “I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again,” Dion continued. “I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%. It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again.
I want you all to know, I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again! – Celine xx…” Dion confirmed her diagnosis in a video posted to Instagram in December 2022. “While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know that this is what’s been causing all of the spasms that I’ve been having,” Dion explained in the video. “Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes making it difficult for me to walk and preventing me from using my vocal cords to sing as I used to.”
