There is effectively a part of the danceurs of the show of Végas, they owe  5 or 6, I believe, if I do not make a mistake.

Here is a press review for the Cape Town show from http://entertainment...fter/960485.htm

Quote

CELINE DION
Size counts
Nils van der Linden
Sun, 24 Feb 2008
Every performer knows they must connect with their audience as soon as they step on stage. Celine Dion did just that at her first Cape Town show — albeit inadvertently. Opening, as usual, with 'I Drove All Night' she expressed the feelings of many punters (this one included) forced to battle the gridlock of Somerset West streets en route to the Vergelegen wine estate.

But, traffic problems notwithstanding, what an appropriate venue it was. Only a huge field can properly accommodate a singer whose vocals run the range from overblown to really overblown — especially when a state of the art sound rig makes that voice startlingly clear for an open air performance.

Couple that impeccable audio quality with a full complement of musicians (including three backing singers) and Dion's live renditions of old familiars, new songs, and cover versions are virtually indistinguishable from the album versions.

'I'm Alive' gets more rhythm (and African dancers), 'Think Twice' receives a slight blues makeover, 'Alone' appropriately sounds even more overwrought, and newie 'Can't Fight The Feeling' has a surprisingly rockier edge (rounded off by Dion's sideways shimmying and some shadow boxing).

But ballads like 'The Power Of Love' and 'All By Myself' are just as sentimental as you remember, 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now' loses none of the bombast, R.Kelly duet 'I'm Your Angel' (performed with backing singer Barnev Valsaint) still sounds like something off a Disney soundtrack, and current hit 'Taking Chances' is spot on.

Real surprises come in the form of a Queen medley (a truncated 'We Will Rock You' is DOA but a fantastic 'The Show Must Go On' is more than strong enough to withstand her no-restraint voice) and Dion's apparent desire to move beyond the pop and sop. 'Eyes on Me' has her trying a Latin style a la Shakira — backed by four flamenco dancing couples — while the final portion of the show sees the Canadian following Christina Aguilera into vintage soul and jazz territory — now supported by 'The Cotton Club' extras suggestively going through '30s dance paces.

Beginning with a medley of 'Soul Man', 'Lady Marmalade' and 'Respect' performed by the backing singers, it also features Dion's renditions of Ike and Tina Turner's 'River Deep, Mountain High' and James Brown's 'It's A Man's Man's Man's World', threatening to transform the concert into a big budget tribute show. Her own, similarly styled 'That's Just The Woman In Me' and 'Love Can Move Mountains' restore some balance, but it's only the final encore ('Your Heart Will Go On' of course) that sees Dion assume control of the show once more.

Nevertheless she gives it her all throughout the slick production, belting out the songs in typical more-is-more style, going through (count 'em) five different outfits, and certainly moving across the extravagant stage with more verve than Elton John. But for someone who's been performing in public since she was five, her audience interaction is surprisingly contrived, ranging from the overused ("Thank you so very much") and the localised ("People of Cape Town are lekker") to the bizarre ("We love you Freddie [Mercury]!").

It means she doesn’t truly connect with the crowds, and even though her voice is so huge, Celine Dion the person is almost dwarfed by the show's magnitude.
