Dion tries her luck in Macau Macau has never seen anything like the series of big-ticket acts rolling through town to play at the new 15,000-seat Venetian Arena, and after the likes of The Police and the Black-Eyed Peas comes an act with a strong history of performing before casino crowds. In 2002, Celine Dion signed a three-year, 600-show contract to appear five nights a week at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and became such a fixture at the gambling mecca that the casino offered guests the Celine Dion Platinum Package, which included room discounts as well as an audience with the singer behind the Titanic theme song My Heart Will Go On. The French-Canadian (above) is touring to promote her latest album Taking Chances, her first studio album since 2003's One Heart. The album sees the songstress venture down a more rock-inspired road, and features collaborations with the likes of ex-Evanescence guitarist Ben Moody and Linda Perry, formerly of 4 Non Blondes. Dion doesn't appear to be taking up a residency at the Venetian Macau, but you may want to try your luck on the casino floor if you plan on attending the March 15 show, with ticket prices between 800 and 2,500 patacas. DJ jailed over marijuana British DJ Grooverider has been jailed for four years in the United Arab Emirates over a joint that was found in his record box. Raymond Bingham, who has been a regular visitor to Hong Kong over the years, was caught last November with a joint weighing 2.16 grams at Dubai's airport after flying in for a gig. The drum'n'bass man, who says he forgot he was carrying the marijuana, learned of his fate last week. In 2006, American R&B singer Dallas Austin was jailed for four years in Dubai after being caught carrying cocaine and Ecstasy into the country. Austin was later pardoned by state officials after lobbying from US senators and crooner Lionel Ritchie, who is popular in the Arab world. While it's unlikely that Ritchie will spring to the defence of Grooverider, a petition calling for his release is available at petitiononline.com.
