It was supposed to be one of the biggest concerts of the 2020 summer, but then the coronavirus pandemic happened.

Earlier this year, ‘The Queen of Pop’ Celine Dion, announced she would be performing live in Athens for the first time on Friday 31st July 2020 at the Olympic Stadium of Athens (OAKA).

Her concert has now been rescheduled to Friday 23rd July, 2021.

All tickets issued for the 2020 concert will be honoured on the new date with the same details and seating.

Fans can still buy tickets for the Athens concert here, but will have to wait an extra year to hear "My Heart Will Go On" being performed live at OAKA.
