LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - Canadian singer, and Las Vegas resident performer Celine Dion, 50, commenced her 22-city tour in the Asian-Pacific region, yesterday, with a sold out show at the Tokyo Dome. The Celine Dion Live 2018 Tour Tokyo is presented by Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ: CZR), MICE and live entertainment industries. Since 2003, Celine Dion and Caesars Entertainment have collaborated on numerous projects. Since then, Celine has performed over 1,000 shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. While Celine's Las Vegas residency performances normally run for 90 minutes, yesterday's performance lasted nearly two hours.

"Entertainment for the whole family is at the core of Caesars Entertainment, and it was a delight to see such a wide range of people enjoying Celine's concert.
