Céline Dion Flies with Drones on Courage World Tour

One of the world's best-selling artists of all time, Céline Dion launched her Courage World Tour, featuring show design by Yves Aucoin, with a premiere at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City on September 18. Accompanying Dion for her signature song, "My Heart Will Go On," one of the best-selling singles of all time, are 104 autonomous indoor drones from Verity Studios that rise from the stage and flock around her in elegant movements, descending to the stage one by one during the final cresendo before whisking away into the dark air. "'My Heart Will Go On' is Céline Dion’s biggest hit," says Verity’s head of live events, Federico Augugliaro, "and show designer Yves Aucoin wanted to create a big visual impact for this song. The drones were integral in providing an immersive, 3D effect, and Céline Dion’s interactions with the drones evoke a strong emotional response from the audience.”
