|Celine Dion concert chronology|
The set list included mainly songs from The Colour of My Love and Dion's previous English albums. But there were also few French songs and covers of "Calling You", "River Deep,Mountain High", and "Can't Help Falling in Love."
At first, Dion performed 2 concerts in September 1993 in Quebec City, Canada, which were later used for the TV specials and a home video release. Another 2 concerts in Quebec were performed in November 1993, to mark the release of a new album.
However, the real tour started on 11 February 1994 in San Francisco, United States. After 10 concerts in the United States, Dion went on the Canadian sold out leg of the tour, which included 6 concerts in the Montreal Forum and a show before 10,000 people in Hamilton among others.
Between 26 April and 1 May 1994 Dion sang in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan at the David Foster tribute concerts. They were recorded for a TV special: JT Super Producers 94. Dion sang "The Power of Love", "Beauty and the Beast" (with Peabo Bryson) and "Love Lights the World" (with Bryson and Color Me Badd). The shows were staged and directed by Tony Greco. Three concerts between 26–28 April were performed in Nippon Budokan, and one on 1 May in Osaka-jō Hall.
From 8 June to 27 August 1994, Céline Dion toured the United States with Michael Bolton on his "The One Thing Tour". They performed in twenty-thousand-seat-arenas, and in the "sheds" that open onto natural amphitheaters. It was their second, sold out tour.
In September/October 1994, Dion performed few shows in Europe, including 3 concerts at the L'Olympia in France, at these shows, Celine sang an alternative version of "The Power of Love". In November she gave another 3 shows in Canada, and in December 1994 she sang in Japan, this time with her own show.
Dion also toured Europe again in May 1995, including a sold-out concert at Hammersmith Apollo, London.
