Celine Dion said goodbye to her Las Vegas residency by premiering a new single, “Flying On My Own.”
The singer wrapped a 16-year run at Caesars Palace’s The Colosseum on June 8th before heading out on a world tour and preparing to release her next album, Courage, in November.
“I am very excited and I am a little bit emotional at the same time,” Dion told the audience, according to People. “This is our final show in this beautiful Colosseum in Las Vegas. There are lots of wonderful memories, you know, but it’s kind of strange at the same time because when they started to put it together I was here and it was like, ‘I don’t know.’ Then I must have misunderstood something because I thought I was going to be here for three months or something like this, and here we are 16 years later. Maybe we have saved the best for last.”
Dion demanded that the crowd dance along with her, and declared at the end of the tune that she felt like she was “in the club!” as she soared through the song.
Dion’s Courage World Tour kicks off in Quebec City on Sept. 18.
