tour, he said, "We are in rehearsals right now, and we are getting
everything in place. It is going really well. It is a lot of work and

excited about that. A lot of legendary artists have performed there,"
Owen listed Celine Dion, Betty Who and British songstress Jessie Ware
as his dream female duet choices.
