Au cœur du stade (meaning At the Heart of the Stadium) is a live album by Canadian singer Celine Dion, released on August 27, 1999. It's her 4th live album, 20th French album and 26th in total.

Album information[edit]

Au cœur du stade was recorded at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, during two performances on June 19 and 20, 1999.

Most of the songs on this album are live versions of tracks originally recorded for S'il suffisait d'aimer. Au cœur du stade contains also some of singer's early French songs ("Ce n'était qu'un rêve", "D'amour ou d'amitié", "Mon ami m'a quittée") and few English-language tracks, including "Let's Talk About Love" and "My Heart Will Go On". Medley acoustique (track nine) is five different songs, each of which could have stood alone as its own track, especially "Un garçon pas comme les autres (Ziggy)" which clocks in at over three minutes.

The CD does not contain the full show. All songs can be found on the Au cœur du stade DVD, also released in 1999. Au cœur du stade was recorded during the European leg of the Let's Talk About Love Tour.

The album was promoted with "Dans un autre monde" live video.
