In the days following the tragic Las Vegas shooting, Celine Dion's rep has confirmed to Us Weekly that the singer will continue performing at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace this week. Her next show is scheduled for this evening, Wednesday, Oct. 4, with subsequent performances set for Friday, Oct. 6, and Saturday, Oct. 7.
On Sunday, Oct. 1, a gunman opened fire into a crowd of 22,000 people attending the Route 91 country music festival on the Las Vegas strip. Fifty-nine people were killed and more than 500 injured during the horrific event, which has now been identified as the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
Following the tragedy, Celine took to Instagram to pay tribute to the victims and their loved ones. "Praying for all the innocent victims and their families in Las Vegas," the 49-year-old star wrote. Although the "My Heart Will Go On" singer will continue her Caesar's residency, another Vegas performer, Jennifer Lopez, announced on Tuesday, Oct. 2 that she has postponed her upcoming concerts at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in the wake of the shooting.
"Jennifer is heartbroken that such a senseless tragedy occurred," a rep for the singer said in a statement to People. "Her thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families." J.Lo's Wednesday, Oct. 3, Friday, Oct. 6, and Saturday, Oct. 7 shows will be rescheduled for a later date, her spokesperson confirmed.
Celine began her Las Vegas residency back in March 2003 with the show A New Day. When that program wrapped in December 2007, the mom-of-three debuted her second (and current) show, Celine. Today, Celine holds the record for longest residency show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and has performed more than 1,110 concerts in the popular venue to date. Her contract with the resort extends through 2019.
