On Wednesday night, Dion is set to kick off a gigantic concert tour, hitting several Canadian provinces, including Quebec, Ontario, B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, as well as the U.S.

The massive 65-date trek coincides with the release of the three latest singles. It will be Dion’s biggest run of shows since 2008-09’s Taking Chances world tour.

Dion left the spotlight for a short while in 2016 after her longtime husband and manager René Angélil died from complications of cancer.

When asked what Courage meant to her, Dion revealed that it was about finding her “inner strength” and a way for her to “keep going.”

“I think I went through a lot, and life had given me the tools to find courage and to keep going,” she said. “The people that I love so much embraced the moments that were difficult, [and] they gave me so much strength.”

“Then a song came that was called Courage, and it didn’t take long for all of us to say: ‘I think the album should be called Courage,’” Dion added.

Dion’s three latest singles are now available on all major streaming platforms.

The full Courage album drops on Nov. 15. It is now available for pre-order.
