Legendary icon and Las Vegas resident performer Celine Dion launched her 22-city tour across the Asian-Pacific region with a spectacular two-hour, sold out performance inside the Tokyo Dome last night. 
The tour is the latest milestone in a 15-year history of collaboration and partnership between Caesars Entertainment and Celine Dion, who began her first residency "A New Day…" at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace (Las Vegas) in 2003. 
Since that time, Celine has performed over 1,000 shows to over four million fans at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and will continue to add to this number with her current residency, "Celine." 
While her Las Vegas residency performances usually run for 90 minutes, last night's show lasted for approximately two hours.
"Caesars Entertainment is the global leader in creating world-class live entertainment experiences and we are delighted that we helped bring Celine Dionback to Japan for the first time in 12 years," said Mark Frissora, President and Chief Executive Officer of Caesars Entertainment. "Live Entertainment has been key to our success as the preeminent Integrated Resort (IR) operator. With the IR legislation reaching its final stages, we hope this concert demonstrates our commitment to developing meaningful partnerships in Japan."
