Céline Dion's heart, and her concerts, will go on for longer in Quebec next summer.

The Canadian pop superstar has added five more shows to her spin through the province, which begins July 31 in Montreal.

Promoters say she's added concerts on Aug. 8, 9, 12 and 13 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, and one on Aug. 24 at Centre Videotron in Quebec City.

Earlier this week, Dion had announced six Canadian dates.

Tickets for all shows are now on sale.

In August, Dion returned to perform in Las Vegas for the first time since taking a year off to care for her ailing husband, René Angelil.
