LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Caesars Entertainment has announced that country performers Reba McEntire and Brooks & Dunn will be the newest headliners at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The announcement came during a Wednesday news conference in Las Vegas.

The Colosseum previously was home to Celine Dion. But the superstar vocalist announced in August that she needed to cancel all shows scheduled through March to focus on her health and her husband's recovery from a cancerous tumour.

The five-time Grammy winner launched her popular Las Vegas residency in 2003 and regularly sold out the 4,000-seat Colosseum.
