On Tuesday December 11, Columbia Records released “Celine Dion – A New Day: Live In Las Vegas”, a deluxe five hour double-DVD collection commemorating the historic five-year sold-out run of Celine Dion’s attendance record-breaking Las Vegas concert extravaganza, “A New Day”.

The DVD Collection includes exclusive bonus features of behind-the-scenes footage and highlights that occurred during the show’s five year run at Caesars Palace. 18 songs and 90 minutes of music was filmed in breath-taking state-of-the-art high definition during the week of January 17-21, 2007.

In addition, the DVD collection will premiere more than three hours worth of bonus material that includes:

  • three documentary features: “Because You Loved Me – A Tribute to the Fans”; “A New Day – All Access,”
  • a revelatory behind-the-scenes look at 12 hours in the life of Celine as she creates that day’s performance of her Las Vegas extravaganza, from leaving home to sound check to a night vision view of the show from her unique backstage perspective;
  • and “A New Day – The Secrets,” an intimate collection of highlights, high-jinx, and memories spanning the five years of magic that made “A New Day” the hottest ticket in Las Vegas history.

Celine Dion’s “A New Day” began on March 25, 2003 with an initial three-year commitment that was later extended to five years. Celine was to perform five nights a week at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, a 4000-seat arena designed specifically for her show.

This 90-minute event, “A New Day” introduced a new form of theatrical entertainment, a fusion of song, performance art, innovative stage craft and state-of-the-art technology that people from across the world have travelled to see.

The show was created by Dragone Productions, a team led by Franco Dragone, the creative spirit behind ten of the critically acclaimed productions by Cirque du Soleil, including the groundbreaking “O” at Bellagio in gambling haven Las Vegas.

On December 15, 2006, Celine announced that she was entering the last year of performances with the final curtain set to rise and fall on December 15, 2007, four days after the release of her “Celine Dion – A New Day: Live In Las Vegas” DVD collection.

Over the course of the show’s record-breaking sold-out run, more than 3,000,000 people have seen Celine Dion’s “A New Day.”

When the show’s final curtain falls on December 15, 2007, “A New Day” will have taken in approximately $400,000,000, one of the highest concert grosses in music history.
