Au cœur du stade is Celine Dion's fifth home video release. This 90-minute concert was recorded live at the Stade de France in Paris, Franceduring the Let's Talk About Love World Tour. It was recorded on June 19–20, 1999 and released on August 30, 1999. During these two sold-out performances Dion sang in front of 90,000 spectators at a single show for a total of 180,000 in only two nights.
Jean-Jacques Goldman joined Dion on "J'irai où tu iras," "To Love You More" features Taro Hakase on violin, and Diana King can be seen on a screen during "Treat Her Like a Lady." Dion paid also tribute to the Bee Gees singing "Stayin' Alive" and dancing during "You Should Be Dancing." However, the performance of "Tell Him" with Barbra Streisand on a big screen was cut from the DVD.
The Au cœur du stade DVD also includes exclusive footage from the making of S'il suffisait d'aimer and Let's Talk About Love. It features an appearance by guest star Sir George Martin, and rarely seen footage of Dion, Barbra Streisand, David Foster, and the "Tell Him" lyricists Linda Thompson chatting around the piano. The entire "Tell Him" video is also included on this disk.
