Tour Programme

Two separate brochures in French were distributed. There were only few copies available. The brochures, totally in black and white, were a few pages with information about the songs performed, the tour personnel and four small pictures from the concerts, plus the cover photo.

Céline Dion mainly toured Quebec. It started on 11 January 1988 at the Theatre du Cuivre, Rouyn-Noranda. She gave concerts in the northern region of Quebec, in Laval, as well as numerous shows at the Saint-Denis Theatre in Montreal.
