Legendary Canadian singer, Celine Dion has been forced to cancel the rest of her current US Courage Tour from March 9 to April 22 due to health challenges.
The 53-year-old singer was forced to scrap the shows by ‘severe and persistent muscle spasms,’ according to a press release posted to her website.
Her announcement comes three months after she had to cancel the start of her Las Vegas comeback residency over the same health issue.
‘Tickets purchased with a credit card through authorized ticketing outlets will be refunded automatically to the credit card used for purchase,’ the press release said.
‘Ticket holders of the cancelled performances will soon receive an email notification with more information. For further inquiries, ticket holders should reach out to their original point of purchase.’
Celine ‘recently has been treated for severe and persistent muscle spasms which are preventing her from performing, and her recovery is taking longer than she hoped,’ per her website. ‘Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat the condition.’
She herself said:
‘I was really hoping that I’d be good to go by now, but I suppose I just have to be more patient and follow the regimen that my doctors are prescribing.’
The superstar singer added:
‘There’s a lot of organizing and preparation that goes into our shows, and so we have to make decisions today which will affect the plans two months down the road. I’ll be so glad to get back to full health, as well as all of us getting past this pandemic, and I can’t wait to be back on stage again.’
‘Meanwhile, I’ve been very touched by all the words of encouragement that everyone’s been sending to me on social media. I feel your love and support and it means the world to me.’
