Celine Dion cancels North American tour due to health scare

Celine Dion has cancelled the remaining shows from the American leg of her world tour as a result of ongoing health concerns.

Canadian singer, Celine Dion has released a statement to fans, revealing the decision to cancel her shows due to severe muscle spasms, making it difficult to perform.

The persistent spasms also forced Dion to cancel a short residency in Las Vegas that was set to commence in November last year.

“I was really hoping that I’d be good to go by now, but I suppose I just have to be more patient,” she wrote on Twitter.

The tour was expected to continue in March, performing in 16 cities across Canada and the United States, over a two-month period.

Dion explained, “There’s a lot of organising 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,” she continued.

Before the pandemic, Dion had performed 52 shows as part of her Courage World Tour and still plans to complete the European run of shows, starting in Birmingham on the 25th of May.

The 53-year-old has thanked fans for their support, writing, “I feel your love and support and it means the world to me.”

We’re so grateful the singer will be okay and will be back in view of her loving fans soon but we sure do wish she had signed off with “I’m alive” (her 2002 release).
