PURPLE RAIN
I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Bathing in the purple rain

I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Underneath the purple rain

Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too

You say you want a leader
But you can't seem to make up your mind
I think you better close it
And let me guide you to the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
If you know what I'm singing about up here
C'mon, raise your hand

Purple rain, purple rain
I only want to see you
Only want to see you
In the purple rain

Céline Dion: Collaborations with Adele, MHD, tracklist ... We make the point!

The star has announced a new album in English for 2018.
After the success of "Encore un soir ", sold to nearly 1.5 million copies in the world, Céline Dion continues the recording of her next album in English. The diva has recently announced a release for 2018 without specifying the date. Several rumors surround this project ...
This October 18th, fans of Céline Dion were in turmoil since a tracklist of the new album to appear would have leaked! It shows the names of 13 songs, including two duets with Adele (what the Canadian dream) and Sam Smith. The most fervent fans of the star have smelled the scam and spoke a fake news. - Thomas Montet

Show Celine Live in Las Vegas 2011/2018

 Robe MegaPointes for Celine Dion Vegas Show
Canadian superstar Celine Dion’s lighting designer Yves Aucoin has added Robe’s brand new MegaPointe multi-purpose moving light fixtures to the rig for her popular “Celine” show at the Colosseum, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas.
This is the first live concert show for MegaPointe in North America … and Robe is delighted with the high-profile reference! 

The hard-working Grammy Award winning artist and top selling recording star who offers an accessible mix of pop, soul, rock and RnB is currently playing around 70 shows a year in Las Vegas in a series of 3 week stints, and tours other territories in between.

Yves has worked with her since 1989, and Montreal based lighting supplier Solotech, represented by Richard Lachance and François Desjardins, has also been involved since Celine’s shows first started carrying a production. 

Yves jumped at the chance to add MegaPointes to the Vegas spectacle! He likes to keep the long running residency looking fresh by introducing new elements.

The 4,296 capacity Colosseum was inspired by the architecture of ancient and contemporary Rome and has been in operation since 2003, when it first opened with a showcase of Celine Dion’s residency show “Celine in Las Vegas - Opening Night Live” … Yves recalls the event extremely well, and at that point he says they had around 180 fixtures in the theatre!

Some of these luminaires are still there, but over the years other visiting artists have added to the rig, so there are now around 300 fixtures in the house rig … the very latest of which are the 22 x MegaPointes.

The stage is around 125 ft. wide so it’s a big space to fill, and when Yves decided to add the MegaPointes – following a demo by John Bilyk and the Robe North America team – he knew that he would be able to make an immediate impact and shift the dynamics of the show. 

Twelve MegaPointes are positioned on a bridge upstage of the band and these have become real workhorses for this new-look show. They are used for beams, back key-lighting and projecting and texturing onto the stage as well as for aerial looks.

Six MegaPointes along the front of the stage are used extensively when the front curtain is in and the space is smaller and more intimate.  Concentrated on the apron, the four remaining fixtures are on four ‘mobilator’ - a TAIT special - moving band risers. These illuminate the musicians and provide a second layer of mid-stage beams which Yves can integrate into his bigger pictures.

Yves – who throughout his long and illustrious industry career has always had a penchant for road-testing new products – is “well impressed” so far with the MegaPointes!  He had his work cut out to program 22 new fixtures into 28 songs in a short window, and is pleased with the results.

He appreciates the large, efficient zoom, and the fact you can have a sharp beam one minute, then zoom out without losing power and still have a nice hard-edged fat beam which also looks cool with a gobo inserted. 

He thinks the gobos are excellent, and loves the quality of the colors. He says this is one of the features that successfully “seduced” him into adding MegaPointes to the show. The blue and amber ranges – their richness and definition - he finds particularly interesting and attractive.

He also mentions that he can easily pull the zoom a little bit and run smoothly into an elegant sweep across the audience at the Colosseum without blinding people, a maneuver that’s not easy to achieve with many other moving lights.

Yves has used Robe products in his work for some time, particularly the BMFL range. He thinks Robe as a brand is “Rock solid” right now.

“Their fixtures are powerful, reliable, practical – easy to clean and service – this is what I am hearing constantly from my crews,” he stated.

Yves also designs the video and set for all of Celine’s shows as well as programming and operating the lighting for most. For the occasional Vegas gig he cannot attend, the venue’s Greg Whittle will step in and run the lighting … having learned the show cue-by-cue.

Celine Dion has had the longest residency at the Colosseum – she will hit the 1110 mark on June 2nd 2018 … and celebrated her 1000th there on October 8th 2016.

Celine Dion "Prince Medley" (Show Celine Live in Las Vegas September 2017)

video
Prince Medley : "Kiss" & "Purple Rain" 

KISS
You don't have to be beautiful to turn me on
I just need your body, baby, from dusk 'til dawn
You don't need experience to turn me out
You just leave it all up to me, I'm gonna show you what it's all about

You don't have to be rich to be my boy
You don't have to be cool to rule my world
Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with
I just want your extra time and your kiss

You got to not talk dirty, baby, if you wanna impress me
You can't be too flirty, mama, I know how to undress me
I want to be your fantasy, maybe you could be mine
You just leave it all up to me, we could have a good time

You don't have to be rich to be my boy
You don't have to be cool to rule my world
Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with
I just want your extra time and your kiss

[Bridge]
Yes, oh, I think I wanna dance, uh
Gotta, gotta, oh
Little Girl Wendy's Parade
Gotta, gotta, gotta

Women, not girls, rule my world, I said they rule my world
Act your age, mama, not your shoe size, maybe we could do the twirl
You don't have to watch Dynasty to have an attitude
You just leave it all up to me, my love will be your food

You don't have to be rich to be my boy
You don't have to be cool to rule my world
Ain't no particular sign I'm compatible with!
I just want your extra time and your kiss
