She could be seen moving and grooving to some of the English rock bands biggest hits like Paint It Black, Sympathy For The Devil, and You Can’t Always Get What You Want before closing it out with (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.

Celine seemed to be in awe of 80-year-old Keith and the rest of the band as she could be seen wiping tears from her face with her hands during Jumping Jack Flash.

The My Heart Will Go On hitmaker looked stylish as always as she sported a clinging red leather long-sleeved dress.

Her dirty blonde tresses were pulled back in a ponytail as she showcased her natural looks by wearing minimal make-up.

She didn’t let her disease get in the way of having as she stood and danced through most of the concert.

Last month, Celine revealed the reason why she decided to wear a coat while making a surprise appearance at the 2024 Grammys in February.

The star shocked fans as she showed up at the ceremony amid her battle with incurable stiff-person syndrome in order to present Taylor Swift with the album of the year award.

And now Celine shared why she opted to wear a mustard yellow Valentino coat over her gown at the event.

‘It made me feel better for a moment to hold onto this coat, to hide myself a little bit from all these little things,’ she told Vogue in a recent Life in Looks series.

‘It was very nerve-wracking, but at the same time, a big honor,’ she said about her appearance. ‘That magic. That excitement. To see the fans, to see the crowd. To see show business again.’

The My Heart Will Go On singer was styled by Law Roach for the evening. He is known for his work with Euphoria star Zendaya.

I was like, “You can walk onstage with a coat? Oh yeah! You can do whatever you want in fashion, have a good time, wear that coat, own that coat, go for it,”‘ Celine said of her decision to wear the coat.

While speaking about wanting to ‘hide’ in the coat the five-time Grammy winner started singing the words from her 2019 track ‘Imperfections’.

‘I got my own imperfections. I got my own… I got my own, whole…’ she sang in the clip, ‘So, we did it.’

The appearance was one of just a few public ones that she’s made over the past few years, after she was diagnosed with the rare neurological disorder stiff-person syndrome (SPS) in 2022.

As she stepped out on stage she was accompanied by her son René-Charles Angélil, 23.

‘It took a lot, a lot out of me. But my son, René Charles — RC — came and gave me his support.’

‘And to present the award — the album of the year — to Taylor Swift — it was an honor because she’s having the time of her life and I’m the one who’s presenting it to her,’ Dion added.

She also remarked on getting a standing ovation when the crowd saw her: ‘It’s always very, very touching when you have a standing ovation.’

During the ceremony Swift received backlash for being ‘disrespectful’ by ‘ignoring’ Celine while accepting the award for Album of the Year – which Celine herself won 27 years ago.

As Dion handed her the award, fans pointed out that Swift didn’t acknowledge her and didn’t make eye contact, quickly looking back to celebrate the moment with her collaborators instead.

However, there appeared to be no ill-feelings as the iconic pair later posed-up happily backstage.

The hitmaker, announced in December 2022 that she had been diagnosed with stiff-person syndrome – an extremely rare disorder that makes the muscles in the torso and limbs alternate between spasming and being rigid. She revealed she would be stepping away from performing.

Celine opened up about her health battle in a rare interview with Vogue France on Monday as she made her grand return to showbiz.

Asked how she is doing, she replied: ‘I’m well, but it’s a lot of work. I’m taking it one day at a time.’

Explaining how she manages the condition she explained: ‘Five days a week I undergo athletic, physical and vocal therapy. I have to learn to live with it now and stop questioning myself.

At the beginning I would ask myself: why me? How did this happen? What have I done? Is this my fault? Life doesn’t give you any answers. You just have to live it!’

Celine added: ‘I’ve chosen to work with all my body and soul, from head to toe, with a medical team. I want to be the best I can be. My goal is to see the Eiffel Tower again!’

Celine has also revealed whether she will ever take to the stage to perform again.

In her candid response she replied: ‘I can’t answer that…. Because for four years I’ve been saying to myself that I’m not going back, that I’m ready, that I’m not ready.

‘As things stand, I can’t stand here and say to you: ‘Yes, in four months.’ I don’t know… My body will tell me.’

‘As the road to resuming my performing career continues, I have realized how much I have missed it, of being able to see my fans.
