Celine Dion gives fans a glimpse of family life on the road in new concert film

by hellomagazine.com If you weren't lucky enough to catch Celine Dion's Taking Chances world tour when it came near you in 2008, you now have a new chance.

Released in cinemas on Wednesday for a limited run, documentary Celine Dion: Through The Eyes Of The World features incredible performances and intimate behind-the-scenes footage of the singer's life on the road with her family.

The Montreal-born star took then 82-year-old mum Therese and seven-year-old son Rene-Charles along on the tour, which encompassed 25 countries and 93 cities.

As well as material featuring them, the movie also shows Celine greeting fans, visiting a Belgian chocolate factory and meeting Nelson Mandela in South Africa.

"I wanted to tour as an artist but also as a mom, a daughter, and a wife," she told the Boston Globe.

"I wanted to see the world and grow as a family. This film was not supposed to be for the public. This was supposed to be a family album, just a movie for us. But it turned out so great that (my husband) Rene approached a movie company to release it."

Having recently spoken of her determination to have another baby, the 41-year-old is currently working on new albums in English and French.

And she's also just announced she's to return to Las Vegas in 2011 with an all-new show of timeless classics for a three-year residency at Caesars Palace.

"We're not trying to do the (original) Vegas show again," she told US talk-show host Larry King.

"We're not trying to do Taking Chances again. We're trying to have a 31-piece orchestra. We're going to sing. We're going to do great music - a Hollywood movie tribute."
