According to statistics just published by the specialized website Pollstar, his tour Courage was the second highest paying in the world, in 2020.
With revenue of $ 71.2 million when forced to shutdown on March 8, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, following a concert in Newark, the tour of the Quebec diva was surpassed only by the legendary Elton John, who totaled $ 87.1 million.
When it comes to North American tours, Celine Dion easily tops the Trans-Siberian Orchestra ($ 58.2M) and Post Malone ($ 40.3M).
The survey period of the Pollstar site, it should be noted, goes from November 21, 2019 to November 18, 2020. This means that Celine Dion, Elton John and the other international stars of the music industry were able to count a little more three months of revenue before the break.
If the health situation allows it, Celine Dion will repeat the action at the La Défense arena in Paris for six dates next March. She must stay in Europe until the end of July. Around twenty dates await him in North America in August and September.
No other concerts are announced for the moment in Montreal and Quebec.
