Canadian superstar Celine Dion made an emotional return to her Las Vegas tour A NEW DAY on Wednesday after a neck injury forced her to take a two-week break.

The MY HEART WILL GO ON singer wept on the stage at Caesars Palace and hysterically thanked her fans for their support after she seriously damaged a neck muscle earlier this month (MAY04).

The 36-year-old told the audience during the show, "I know I don't have to talk to you about the last two weeks because I could talk for hours. But things happen and sometimes we get injured.

"I've missed being here. I've missed you. Thank you for the privilege of performing for you."

Dion is in the second year of a three-year engagement at the Las Vegas Strip hotel-casino.
