The mishaps and difficulties had me upset when I arrived. The venue personnel provided GREAT customer service. All you have to do is calmly explain what you want, what you need, and they will try to work out a satisfactory resolution. This was my first visit to the Arena. In the end, it proved to be a very satisfying one.

I wound up having transportation problems and arrived just as intermission started. It was necessary to walk around the entire perimeter of the arena in order to reach Will Call. And that hike was after walking from the bus stop at Flower and Pico. I was not happy about that part of the experience. I didn't want to miss more of the performance because of searching for my seat. Because of the hike, I learned that one can take the Red Line and transfer to the Blue Line and have a very comfortable and timely trip. Or you can take the Red Line and transfer to the Dash bus and be dropped off right in front of the Arena.

On the drive to the staples center, if you have a Celine Dion CD pop it in & listen to all her classic hits.

The way the stage was set up, there was not a bad seat in the house. There was a 30 minute delay due to technical difficulties, so we were all getting a bit restless by 10:15pm. Celine's performance was great. I've seen her show in Vegas, and this...continued

Description

From humble beginnings in a rural French Canadian home town, Céline Dion has risen to international superstardom like a shooting star. Céline has been called the premier contemporary pop vocalist of the Nineties. She has earned music industry accolades from around the world: Grammy Awards in the US, Juno and Felix Awards in Canada, and World Music Awards in Europe. The entire world has seen Céline Dion literally transform herself from a gifted pre-adolescent into an international superstar.

By 1988, Céline had established a strong name for herself in her native province of Quebec, where she was enjoying superstar status, receiving numerous Felix Awards and racking up platinum albums. That same year, Céline won the prestigious Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin Ireland, where she performed live before a television audience of 600 million viewers throughout Europe, the USSR, the Middle-East, Japan, and Australia.

In September, 1990 Céline released ‘Unison’ – her first English-language album and her first for Sony Music – and scored a breakthrough US hit with the Top 5 single “Where Does My Heart Beat Now”.

Céline’s international breakthrough came when she recorded the title track for the soundtrack to the animated Disney hit movie ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ The song went to number one and garnered an Academy Award and a Grammy Award. “Beauty and the Beast” formed the cornerstone for Céline’s second English language album, called simply ‘Céline Dion.’ That album produced four more hit singles including “Love Can Move Mountains,” “Water From The Moon,” “If You Asked Me To” and “Did You Give Enough Love.” In Canada, the album went six times platinum and set the stage for an incredible streak of Juno Awards.

Released in March 1996, ‘Falling Into You’ became the best-selling album released that year; topped the charts in 11 countries, and was voted Album of the Year and Best Pop Album at the 39th annual Grammy Awards ceremony. The album has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide.

’Let’s Talk About Love’ was released on the same day as the soundtrack of the motion picture ‘Titanic’. Both albums featured the much-loved Titanic movie’s theme song, “My Heart Will Go On,” written by James Horner and produced by James Horner and Walter Afanasieff. “My Heart Will Go On” quickly became the wedding song of choice for Céline’s fans.

A new peak in Céline’s spectacular career was reached when she released her new album ‘A New Day Has Come’ in March 2002, which ended her two-year hiatus. The album entered number one in more than 17 countries.

In March 2003, Céline began a three-year commitment to appear five nights a week at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, a 4000-seat arena designed for her show.

Due to the unprecedented sold-out success of Celine’s Las Vegas show, the original three-year engagement was extended an additional two years. On December 15th, 2006, Celine announced that she was entering the last year of performances with the final curtain set to rise and fall on December 15th, 2007.

The album that everyone was talking about was finally released in November 2007. ‘Taking Chances,’ pooled the talents of top songwriters and producers including Linda Perry, Dave Stewart, Ben Moody, Ne-Yo, John Shanks, Kara DioGuardi, Kristian Lundin, Anders Bagge and Peer Astrom, Aldo Nova, Christopher “Tricky” Stewart and Chris Neil. Celine set out in a bold new creative direction with ‘Taking Chances’, perhaps the most personal and revelatory collection of songs and performances in her fabled career.
