Celine Dion is coming back to Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas after she announced in August she would be putting her career on hold to care for her husband, René Angélil.

René Angélil suffered from a cancerous tumor removed from his throat in December 2013. At the time, Celine was also recovering from an illness that inflamed her throat muscles.

"Mr. Giampaolo would like to reassure the public and fans alike that Celine will return to the stage but no dates have been confirmed at this time," Dion's representative confirmed on her website on Tuesday, March 10.

The CEO of her management company, Aldo Giampaolo, set the record straight on her website on Tuesday when he announced four of her band members would not have their contracts renewed on March 15.

“It was a difficult decision to make that I felt was necessary to breathe fresh air into the show…Celine and Rene join me in thanking them for sharing their immense talent with us over the years and we wish them continued success in their future endeavors,” the Feeling Productions CEO stated.

Meanwhile, a Caesars Entertainment spokeswoman told the Associated Press that the company and show producer AEG are ready to welcome Celine back to the venue as soon as she is ready but confirmed that there are no performance dates to announce.

In the meantime, other acts, such as Rod Stewart, Elton John, Shania Twain, Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn have been taking Celine's spot at The Colosseum.

The 'My Heart Wil Go On' singer was earning more than $500,000 a show in Vegas!
