Celine Dion ‘Courage’ Tour In Minneapolis
Last Friday, November 1, I attended Celine Dion's concert at The Target Center. My life was changed that night.
A big group of us drove up to Minneapolis so that we could just bask in the glory that is Celine!
Lately, I have been disappointed at a couple concerts where the artist did not play my favorite song. Well, Celine opened with my favorite song so I was ecstatic.
Spoiler Alert: She opens with "It's All Coming Back to Me Now"! It was everything!
She pops up on stage in a sequined red dress and sings the crap out of that song. There were definitely 'moments of gold and there were flashes of light'. It was powerful and dramatic. Just the way we like Celine.
I don't know how I left the show with a voice because I felt I had to scream sing every song with her like we were doing a duet or something.
Speaking of which, girl still sounds amazing. Her voice is still as strong and powerful as ever. Every big note was still on point. I had goosebumps more at this show than any other concert I've been to!
Most artists, when in Minneapolis, do a Prince cover because he's kind of a big deal there. And most of the time they do "Purple Rain". I was pleased that Celine chose to do "Kiss". However, that moment was during a part of the show that was all covers so maybe she does it everywhere. Anyway, it was great.
I was asked a bunch of times if she sang "My Heart Will Go On" and my answer is, "Duh."
It was part of her encore. For "My Heart Will Go On" Celine came out in a very puffy white dress and there was a really cool moment where drones with twinkle lights move around the stage. It was very pretty.
She ended the show with a cover of John Lennon's "Imagine" and then it was time to go. That was two hours that just flew by!
One complaint-ish, I wish she would have sang "I Drove All Night" instead of a couple of her French songs, but that's just me.
But overall, Bravo, Celine. Bravo!
