It's been 3 years since Celine Dion lost her husband Rene to cancer, 16 years since she started residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and she is now ready to hit the road again.

"It's time for a change, it's time to hit the road," Dion announced during a concert and Q&A at Los Angeles' Theatre at the Ace Hotel. "So lots of news, lots of work."

Celine's Tour includes a December 5th stop at KeyBank Center in Buffalo with tickets going on sale this Friday at 10am.

Named the Courage World Tour, Dion's new gig will come months after her Vegas residency ends in June. The tour officially kicks off Sept. 18 in Quebec City, Canada and will make stops in over 50 North American cities.

Dion, who just turned 51, announced that she will drop a new album to coincide with the tour featuring the single, "Courage."

Tickets can be purchased at KeyBank Center Box Office, online at www.tickets.com.
