Did anyone else know this ?

After her Let's Talk About Love Tour of Europe, Dion's team announced the singer would give a special New Year's Eve concert in Montreal. Dubbed "The Millennium Concert" the show featured a new setlist and special appearances by prominent Canadian singers.[11] At the same time, David Foster began negotiations to have Dion, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston and Andrea Bocelli to conduct a mini-tour titled "Three Divas and a Tenor". The tour never came to fruition.[12]

FOUR MEGA-STARS MAY $ING IN UNISON

BY GEORGE RUSH AND JOANNA MOLLOY WITH MARCUS BARAM AND K.C. BAKER

Tuesday, March 2th 1999, 2:10AM

It’s hard to imagine Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion sharing a shade of lipstick, let alone a concert stage, but Grammy-winning songwriter David Foster is giving it his best shot. Foster is talking with the trio about touring with opera star Andrea Bocelli.

The extravaganza, “Three Divas and a Tenor,” would be modeled after the “Three Tenors” shows starring Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras. The divas and Bocelli could be even more profitable.

Foster hopes to have the foursome perform in a handful of cities, including New York, Las Vegas, Monte Carlo and Rio, insiders say. Each show would be broadcast on a pay-per-view special, followed by the CD, followed by the laserdisc, followed by — who knows? — the spaghetti sauce.

Of course, the salaries would be astronomical. The potential pay-off could be enough for the stars’ record companies — Houston is on Arista, Bocelli on Polygram, and Streisand and Dion are on Sony — to bankroll the tour.

But there are stumbling blocks.

Streisand has told Foster she’s intrigued. But, according to one source, “she wants to have final say over what gets sung.” She is also deep into recording her next album of love songs, which she’s likely to support with her own tour.

Bocelli also is looking ahead at a crowded concert schedule.

A rep for Foster confirmed that negotiations with the divas “are in the works,” but added, “it’s too soon to talk about.”

It's only logical for David to think about this, because he was producing songs for the 4 best voices in the world, why not bring them together? (And make big bucks out of it? :shifty: )

I guess Céline's LTAL tour, René's illness and Céline's decision to take a break axed her being part of this plan...

Being it probably a David song only concert, I'd say Céline would have sung:

ALL BY MYSELF
BECAUSE YOU LOVED ME
THE COLOUR OF MY LOVE (would have been cool in 1999!)
THE POWER OF LOVE
THE PRAYER (with Andrea)
TELL HIM (with Barbra)
TO LOVE YOU MORE
(YOU MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A) NATURAL WOMAN (with Whitney) dream!! :wub2:

Imagine the amount of money they wouldve made... astronomical. They couldve been doing sold out stadiums left, right and center considering at that time, Celine by herself was a stadium queen

Probably more to do with Celine being off renewing her vows and then conceiving RC and Andrea having a busy schedule rather than immediately saying it was one person refusing to do it

I remember this, a article about this tour was published in a very important newspaper in Brazil in 1999.

The concept sounds great but would it be wise for business when all artists could sell stadiums on their own?  I’m sure it could have been epic though!

I don't think it would have been a massive tour, but like the article said: just a few selected performances. And they would have earned a lot of money with broadcasts on a pay-per-view and of course sales of CD's, VHS's, DVD's!

Very true, but they couldve easily done like a huge stadium for maybe 2 nights each city. Just the expensive ones though. Like Las Vegas, Monte Carlo, Rio, NYC, London. Paris, Johannesburg maybe, Melbourne maybe... just like capitals or huge cities which are profitable for them.

Cant of imagined it being anymore than 30 dates anyway
