After 1,141 concerts over the span of 16 years, Céline Dion is coming home to Quebec.

Well, for the summer anyway.

The superstar bade adieu Saturday night to her residency at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas with a show that was described by media outlets from around the world as “epic,” “heartfelt” and “emotional.”

Dion’s performance included beloved hits like It’s All Coming Back to Me Now; a tribute to her late husband René Angélil; an appearance by her three sons; and a boppy, energetic new song, Flying On My Own.

“There was a lot of emotion in the room,” Dion said after the show. “I really wanted to stay as strong as possible. I’m proud of myself.”

She sang for 4,298 spectators from around the world. Fans roared during the two-hour show, and Dion returned the praise.
