Céline Dion has sold over 180 million records worldwide, of which some 500,000 in Finland (not counting the soundtrack album of Titanic). Her upcoming Taking Chances world tour (named after her recently released new album) will be her first tour in nine years. During the past five years Dion starred in her own hugely successful show A New Day at the Caesars Palace Colosseum in Las Vegas.
The Taking Chances world tour 2008-2009 will start in Johannesburg, South Africa on the 14th of February and will span five continents, 25 countries and over 100 cities.
Also Carlos Santana has been contracted to play in Finland next summer. The legendary guitarist will take the stage at the Kirjurinluoto Arena in Pori on the 18th of July as part of Pori Jazz 2008.
Mexican-born Santana has sold over 100 million albums and won 14 Grammy Awards. He has performed in Finland several times. He also played at Pori Jazz before, nearly 20 years ago, in 1988.
Ticket sales for the concert in July will also already start next Monday (17.12) at 9 a.m. Tickets cost 66 euros, but can be purchased at a reduced price of 60 euros before the 31st of December. Most other performers at the 43rd edition of Pori Jazz will be announced in March.
