Original story: Hold on to your hearts, Céline Dion fans, because it looks like the Canadian music legend could be preparing to announce her first Australian tour in 10 years.
The speculation comes courtesy of some sneaky teasers posted by Australian touring company Frontier Touring, which have Céline fans betting the ‘My Heart Will Go On’ singer will return to Australia soon for her first local tour since 2008.
It all started yesterday, when Frontier Touring shared the following image of three emoticons, along with the date of Friday, 2nd February.

The teaser confused everyone (including us), with people guessing it could have something to do with everything from Kylie Minogue to Carly Rae Jepsen or the Beauty & The Beast musical — or even something more unexpected, perhaps…

It eventually occurred to us that the image could be a reference to the Céline Dion song ‘Beauty & The Beast’, but it still felt like a bit of a stretch. Well, at least until this morning, when Frontier Touring shared a second teaser:

Dion fans immediately jumped on the image as a potential reference to her song ‘The Power Of Love’, and we reckon they could be onto something.
Dion is preparing to embark on her ‘Celine Dion Live 2018’ tour later this year, and she already has dates scheduled across Asia between June and July, where she also hasn’t toured since 2008.
She’s also told fans she’ll be touring the Asia-Pacific region between June and August, so there’s a chance some Australian dates could pop up towards the end of the tour.
While all signs are pointing to an Aussie tour, all will be revealed this Friday, 2nd February, so stay tuned to Music Feeds for all the details.
UPDATE 01/02/18: Frontier Touring has posted another teaser image, which clearly references the use of Céline Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’ in the film Titanic. It also suggests Dion may be preparing to announce shows in both Australia and New Zealand.
