Background and release[edit]

In June 2008, it was announced that Dion will celebrate Quebec City's 400th birthday with special concert on the historic Plains of Abraham on 22 August 2008.[1] Dion personally chose all of the special guest performers for her show.[2] The list of Quebec artists scheduled to perform included: Garou, Marc Dupré, Nanette Workman, Dan Bigras, Mes Aïeux, the Dion family, Zachary Richard, Éric Lapointe, Claude Dubois, Jean-Pierre Ferland and Ginette Reno.[2] Dion and invited artists performed over thirty songs in front of 250,000 spectators.[3] The concert was also broadcast live on giant screens in Lévis, Quebec for an additional 100,000 people.[4] The show was available the next day and until early September, through video-on-demand Vidéotron, Shaw and Cogeco.[5] The distribution of this show was very successful with viewers across Canada.[5] Nearly 130,000 subscribers took advantage of the special offer of the largest cable companies and broadcasters in the country.[5] On 21 September 2008, the show was broadcast on the TVA network, attracting nearly 1.8 million viewers and becaming the evening's most-watched broadcast in Quebec.[6][5]

In October 2008, celinedion.com announced that Dion's historic concert will soon be available on DVD in its entirety.[7] Céline sur les Plaines was released in Canada on 11 November 2008.[8] The DVD features over three hours of concert footage, never seen before bonus material and exclusive behind the scenes clips (footage filmed the day of the show, backstage and during rehearsal).[9][3][7][8] On 20 May 2009, the DVD entitled Live à Quebec was released in France, Belgium and Switzerland.[10] A collector's edition featuring ten exclusive photographs autographed by Dion was also issued in a digipak.[10]
