I am thrilled to announce I'll be touring the Asia-Pacific region this summer and I can't wait to perform for you...

Multi-award-winning Canadian singer Celine Dion will hold her first concert in the country this year.

Bangkok is not the only Asian venue the 49-year-old singer will take the stage in for the first time: Her tour also swings through Manila, Singapore, Jakarta and Taipei.

Ovation said tickets for the concert will go on sale beginning January 18 at 10 a.m.

In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News' MJ Felipe, Dion apologized for not being able to push through with the 2014 concert and said she is excited for this new tour. "But you know what, I'm glad you came closer to me, ' she added, barely getting the sentence out before the woman launches herself at the songstress".

Dion managed to offer some kind words of support for the woman, saying: "2018 we're gonna make a change for your baby. Love the way she handled the situation!" one said.

Dion calmly told the woman: "I'm glad you came up onstage tonight, I'm glad you just wanted to come closer to me", before being vigorously embraced by the fan. As the singer who powered hits such as "Power of Love" and "My Heart Will Go On", she has become one of the most recognizable voices in music history.

Footage has emerged of Celine Dion handling a drunk stage invader incredibly gracefully, even as the overzealous fan humped her leg. I can't wait to see you again.
