She comes in peace...always
Celine Dion will be returning to Vegas, starting this weekend, with a new contract that is worth around $100 million dollars...
Certainly Celine has been good for Caesars, and Caesars has been good for Celine—paying her a reported $100 million for 210 shows over the next three years. During her prior run, from 2003 to 2007, Dion sold out more than 700 consecutive performances, smashing local records for total audience (nearly 3 million), and bringing in more than $400 million at the box office, more greenbacks than the Rat Pack, Liberace, and Elvis combined.
This time around, she’s being touted as a one-woman stimulus bill—worth at least $114 million a year and thousands of jobs.
I hope her planet can spare her long enough to help save Las Vegas.
Obviously, Charlie Sheen and Carrot Top can't do it on their own.
