Sony BMG Music is proud to announce Celine Dion's new single, "Taking Chances". The single is set for release digitally on October 24th, 2007 in the UK. "Taking Chances" was written by Kara Dioguardi and the Eurythmics' Dave Stewart, and produced by John Shanks.
"Taking Chances" is the lead single to be lifted from Celine Dion's forthcoming album also entitled 'Taking Chances' - her first English studio album in over three years and which marks the beginning of a new era in Celine's extraordinary career.
Celine Dion, who is the biggest selling female artist of all time, selling over 180 million albums, opens her first worldwide tour in 10 years on February 14th, 2008 in Johannesburg, giving a benefit concert for the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund. Following on from South Africa Celine will take on a further seven shows in South Africa during February, contributing additional proceeds from these shows to Mr. Mandela's Children's Fund. From South Africa the tour makes stops in the Middle East, Japan, Korea, China, Australia and New Zealand, Europe and North America, playing both stadiums and arenas throughout. The year-long tour will visit 5 continents, over 25 countries, and more than 100 cities.
On December 15th 2007, Celine Dion will take her final bows on the Colosseum stage at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, where she has enjoyed a record-breaking five-year run of sold-out performances to critical acclaim, with her spectacular show, A New Day... The show which has been documented in a deluxe High-Definition DVD, will be released later this year by SonyBMG Music worldwide.
"These past five years have been a wonderful experience for me", says Celine. "To perform every night with such an amazing cast of dancers and musicians on this beautiful show created by Franco Dragone, has been a dream come true. The fans have been so incredibly supportive, coming to see us every night, year after year...it will be difficult to say goodbye, but I'm also ready for the next adventure...I'm looking forward to a new chapter."
Album: 'Taking Chances' is set for release in the UK on November 12th, 2007 (US - November 13th).
