CELINE DION Is A Heavy Metal Fan

Powerhouse pop singer Celine Dion, who has made her name and her fortune with sweet ballads about love, has revealed to Australia's The Sunday Telegraph that she is a closet heavy metal fan.

So much so that her warm-up song while doing sound checks is almost invariably the AC/DC belt-it-out classic "Thunderstruck".

"I like hard rock and, if I'm doing stadiums, I want the engineers to crank the sound system up high with rock and roll, heavy metal music— it helps me to get the adrenalin rushing," she said.

"I've been a big fan of AC/DC for about 15 years or 20 years — the sound guys introduced me to them (their music)."

Dion previously covered the AC/DC classic "You Shook Me All Night Long" as a duet with Anastacia on the VH1 CD/DVD release "Divas Las Vegas 2002", out via Sony Music. Watch video footage of the performance below.
