Falling Into You: Around The World

From March 1996 to June 1997, Céline tours the stadiums of all the major cities of the world in Oceania, North America, Europe and Asia, sometimes returning to certain countries several months apart.

It is in February 1996, a few days after the last concert of the "Tour 95-96" that Celine announces the new world tour to support her album "Falling Into You".

With this tour, Céline performs in the biggest stadiums in the world, with between 50,000 and 70,000 people for each concert. The tour allows Céline to perform over 140 times for over a year, with over 10 concerts in Asia, 10 concerts in Oceania, over 50 concerts in Europe and 75 concerts in North America.
