A little more about Celine and the tour...

Celine Dion is the biggest-selling female artist of all time, with worldwide album sales of more than 200 million. Her RIAA Diamond Award albums "Falling Into You" and "Let's Talk About Love" have each sold more than 30 million copies worldwide.

She has five Grammys--Best Pop Vocal Performance ("Beauty and the Beast"); Album of the Year & Best Pop Album ("Falling Into You"); Record of the Year & Best Female Pop Vocal Performance ("My Heart Will Go On") and two Best Song Oscars ("Beauty and the Beast" & "My Heart Will Go On").

More than three million people saw her in "A New Day" in Las Vegas, during its record-breaking five-year run of sold-out shows. Following the Las Vegas engagement, Celine released her "Taking Chances" CD, which went top five in every major market around the world, and launched her first worldwide concert tour in more than nine years. The tour has been playing to sold-out stadiums and arenas since it debuted in South Africa on Valentines Day 2008, and once completed it will have crossed five continents, 24 countries and 95 cities, en route to playing for an audience of more than three million people.

Currently the tour is in full swing throughout North America, stopping in every major city in the U.S. and Canada, playing to sold-out arenas.

"This tour has been an incredible journey for me," says Celine. "First of all, it's given Rene and I a chance to travel the world with our seven-and-a-half year old son, and as well, we've had my mother who is 81 years old traveling with us...so it's been a wonderful family experience, and I feel really privileged. At the same time, it's been so rewarding for me to reach out to my fans and perform many of the songs that they have supported me on for so many years. We do some new songs, of course, but we make sure to do the long-time favorites as well."

WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
