Celine Dion Concert in Nice

Celine Dion has announced her first world tour in a decade along with a new album!

The French-Canadian singer revealed she will be embarking on a new world tour this fall and release her twelfth English-language studio album, Courage, along with its titular single. Titled the "Courage World Tour," the 51-year-old's global jaunt marks her first concert run in 10 years. Her last, the "Taking Chances World Tour," ran from 2008-2009.

"It's time for a change, it's time to hit the road," she announced via a Facebook Live Q&A event at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. "So lots of news, lots of work."

The trek — which launches in Quebec City, Canada, this September with stops in over 50 North American cities ahead — goes into effect months after the "All by Myself" star finishes her Las Vegas residency in June. As for her upcoming album, Dion spoke mostly of how her single "Courage" inspired the name of her new LP and describes the tune as being about overcoming hardship, presumably drawn from the musician's grief following the death of her husband, Réne Angélil, in January 2016.

“I’m so grateful to all the fans who have come to see my show in Las Vegas for so many years, and now I get the chance to create a brand new show and bring it to them in North America, and around the world," Dion added, joking that, “The biggest news today, is I will be driving the bus on tour."
