From August 1998 to December 1999, Celine Dion toured the stadiums of major cities around the world for her "Let's Talk About Love World Tour" tour. With this tour, Celine Dion, gives more than 90 performances in Asia, Europe and America.
A tour programme in French and English was distributed. It was sold at all concerts Celine did during the "Let´s Talk About Love Tour" in 1998 and in 1999. There are 2 releases of this programme, one for the American leg of the tour in 1998, and the other was only sold in Europe in 1999. Printed on rice paper, it is the largest, the thickest, the richest tour programme released by Celine until that time. It is a real masterpiece. It contains tons of top-quality artistic pictures (from studio shoots and concerts), discography, the band list and a personal greeting from Celine. It contains 36 pages and its dimensions are 31 x 39,5 centimeter.
It is on January 26, 1998, during the 25th American Music Awards ceremony, that Céline announced her wish to return to the stages of the world, in the summer of 1998. A few days after this speech, the tour was officially announced, in February . This tour allows Céline to promote her English-language album "Let's Talk About Love" but also her French-language album "S'il suffisait d'aimer".
The tour begins in Boston, August 21, 1998. Celine gives concerts in major cities of the United States and Canada. The last concerts of 1998 takes place in Montreal.
At the end of January and the beginning of February 1999, the tour makes a stop in Asia. Céline gives a concert in Hong Kong as well as in three major cities of Japan. It is during this visit to Asia that René learns that he has cancer.
Céline is back between February 12 and April 12, 1999 in the United States. But Céline decides to postpone all the American concerts from April 14 to May 7, to stay with René.
Céline gives a few concerts in Europe, between June 14 and July 11, 1999, notably at the Stade de France, near Paris. Several European dates are also canceled, notably in Dublin, Belfast, Birmingham, Frankfurt, Gothenburg, Vienna, Cologne, Lyon, Marseille, Lisbon, and Barcelona.
