HistoryEdit

Céline Dion toured Quebec only. The Incognito tournée started on 11 January 1988 at the Theatre du Cuivre, Rouyn-Noranda. Dion gave 7 concerts in the northern region of Quebec and 2 in Laval.

Dion gave a series of 42 consecutive shows at the Saint-Denis Theatre in Montreal. She performed there for a month starting on 10 February 1988, and later between 12–17 April 1988, 14–19 June 1988, 21–24 September 1988 and 14–18 December 1988.

Dion performed mainly tracks from Incognito, but also a medley of songs from the musical Starmania, "Ton visage" (Jean-Pierre Ferland's cover) and she did imitations of Michael Jackson, Mireille Mathieu, Ginette Reno and Diane Dufresne. During that tour she lost her voice for the first time.[4]

On 2 May 1989, year after winning Eurovision Song Contest with "Ne partez pas sans moi," Dion gave her first concert in Switzerland. She performed in Theatre de Baulieu in Lausanne.[5]

In reference to this tour Celine has said "the memories that first come to mind when I think of the Incognito tour are filled with fits of laughter. From the beginning, in Abitibi, just like the preceding tour, we all knew that we had a good product. And an audience that had been conquered in advance."
