Celine Dion will make her return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas on Tuesday night. This will be Celine's first performance since the death of her husband René Angélil and in honour of her late loved one, the singer will pay tribute to René at the beginning of the show.

The first ten minutes will be live-streamed and fans around the world will be able to watch the clip on Celine's official website.

An announcement on her website confirmed: "On Tuesday, February 23 at 10:30 PM (EST), join Céline and her fans in Las Vegas for a trip down memory lane, live at The Colosseum, to celebrate her return and witness Céline's loving tribute to René."

Celine Dion will dedicate her first show back to her late husband René Angélil 

René sadly passed away on 14 January, two days before his 74th birthday. The singer and manager, who first met Celine when she was 12, had been battling throat cancer.

Three weeks after her husband's death, Celine returned to The Colosseum stage to honour her late husband.

The five-time Grammy winner, who was the final speaker at René's memorial, gave a tearful speech in which she told the audience: "This is my home away from home. At the same time I'm supposed to feel extremely comfortable being home and right now I'm not sure how comfortable I feel."

"I feel his love in the room," she added. "I feel his strength and his warmth being reflected in all of you. René always surrounded me with the best people who believed in us and always worked so hard on our behalf."

The singer spoke at his memorial, saying: "René, I love you, so much. Merci, good night."

Towards the end of her speech, emotions understandably ran high. "On behalf of my family, thank you again for being here with us this evening for this beautiful tribute to mon amour," Celine said through her tears. "René, I love you, so much. Merci, good night."

The couple, who have three sons together, married in December 1994 in a lavish wedding ceremony at Montreal's Notre-Dame Basilica, which was broadcast live on Canadian television.
