Tickets on Sale Now for January 20 Benefit at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace

LAS VEGAS, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Celine Dion, Caesars Entertainment and AEG Live are teaming up to create a special one-night only event, "Adding Tomorrows with Celine Dion," to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013. 

Celine is one of the most widely respected and successful performers in pop music history, having sold more than 200 million albums worldwide. She is a five-time Grammy Award winner, including Album of the Year and Best Pop Album. Her recordings have won two Academy Awards.

The benefit concert will raise funds to support critical research for cystic fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease that causes debilitating lung infections and premature death. As the world's leading organization fighting cystic fibrosis, the CF Foundation funds more research than any other organization and is fueling tremendous advances toward a cure and improving the lives of those with the disease.

Celine will perform at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace beginning at 8:30 p.m. Guests who have purchased special VIP packages that include the exclusive dinner are invited to attend an exclusive pre-concert cocktail reception during Celine's soundcheck–with full orchestra –at The Colosseum.

"I'm honored to be able team up with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and my partners at Caesars Entertainment and AEG Live to raise funds and awareness on January 20th for this very worthy cause," said Celine. "We're making dramatic progress in treating this terrible disease, and I truly hope that one day soon, CF will stand for 'cure found'."

Directed by Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich, the show features a 31-piece band and orchestra and includes Celine's biggest hits mixed with timeless classics that pay tribute to some of the most celebrated songs and artists of all time. "We are grateful to Celine for her generosity and dedication to fighting cystic fibrosis," said Robert J. Beall, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we encourage everyone to come out to see Celine's incredible show at Caesars Palace and help us bring hope to all people with this devastating disease."

On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.
