Celine Dion brought her 2018 summer tour to a close in typically grand fashion, with grosses of $56.5 million reported to Billboard Boxscore. Played across 22 shows in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, Dion sold 250,000 tickets. The biggest engagement of the tour was a three-night stay at Taiwan’s Taipei Arena with $10.7 million grossed, though her one show at the Tokyo Dome delivered the biggest attendance tally, at 42,748.
With a career spanning three decades, Dion has earned her stripes as a touring titan. After an extended hiatus around the turn of the millennium to raise her first child, she re-emerged with a residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, taking in $376 million from 2003 to 2007. Dion began another Vegas residency in 2011 that will play through next year but, in the meantime, she continues to tour internationally, hitting non-domestic markets each summer. Her $56 million haul this year follows the $63 million grossed during the Celine Dion Live 2017 tour and $48 million during summer 2016.
Dion’s success on the road follows her conquering of the recording industry. Dion has accumulated four No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Hot 100 No. and four No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 over the course of her career. She has spent 87 weeks atop the Adult Contemporary chart so far, more than any other artist in history.
