QUEBEC -- Pop megastar Celine Dion is aiming to conquer Quebec City's Plains of Abraham this summer with her only show outside Las Vegas this year.
Dion will appear on July 27 for a single concert. She also played the Plains in 2008 as part of the city's 400th-anniversary celebrations.
Unlike that gig, this one will cost fans.
Promoter QuebeComm said at a news conference today that 60,000 tickets will be available, with prices ranging from $69 to $299 including services and fees.
Sales for the general public will start on April 6.
Dion will sing all her hits, with about 80 per cent of the show in French and 20 per cent in English.
Dion spends most of her time in Las Vegas where she performs at Caesars Palace.
Rene Angelil, Dion's husband and manager, says the timing was ideal for the Quebec show as were the partners.
