The dozen trucks will arrive Friday at Videotron CentreCeline Dion concludes Wednesday night’s series of ten shows in Montreal and Friday, a dozen trucks will head for the Videotron Centre to begin editing of the scene that will host the star on Saturday night.
“It is a festival to have Céline for a week to rub his team and be close to them for several days, which is not the case when it hosts teams just for one night. For us it is fantastic. Everyone is super feverish inside the amphitheater, “said Michel Granger, vice president of the Entertainment and Creative Content Group Sports & Entertainment Quebecor.
The singer moved Saturday to Videotron Centre, there will also be three other nights Sunday and next week.
Michel Granger, Quebecor
Celine Dion is the first artist to settle as many nights in the amphitheater since it opened, and pride is all the greater it is Quebec. The five sold out shows do not really surprise Michel Granger.
“This is our artist. Everyone expected it to be like that. It is the artist who could do this kind of events then with five nights. I do not see any other at present who could attract as many fans as that. There are not any.”
On Friday, the eve of the first, a dozen trucks will arrive at Videotron Centre. The assembly of the scene will start early in the morning, where about 95 technicians will work with Céline’s team to develop its scenography, which is “in the standards,” according to Michel Granger.
Discussions from the beginning
The people of Quebec dreamed to see Celine Dion occur in the amphitheater almost since construction of it has been announced. Michel Granger confirms that discussions took place long ago, but it is almost a year after the opening that the dream finally realized.
“We talked at the time, yes. But it did not work in time. And we know what happened in the life of Celine. The discussions were not successful, it was a matter of circumstance. But the team finally decided to go on tour and we’re really happy about that. ”
Fans from 35 US cities
Videotron Centre has managed to meet its particular five nights with a horde of fans who rakes wide.
“We know that there are fans who come from all over Quebec, the rest of Canada as well, but there are several American cities that will be represented. There are customers who have bought tickets in over 35 US cities from as far away as California and Nevada to attend the show. It covers very wide, “he enthuses.
Michel Granger says it’s virtually unheard-for Videotron Centre. “We had many people who came from outside to Pearl Jam also. But I feel that this is Celine who has this record there. “
