Celine Dion announced over the weekend that she is canceling the remaining dates on the North American leg of her latest concert tour. The 53-year-old Dion wrote on her website that she was suffering from “severe and persistent muscle spasms,” which were preventing her from taking the stage.
Dion posted on Instagram: “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,
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.”
The North American leg of Dion’s Courage World Tour was set to kick-off March 9 at the Ball Arena in Denver, before wrapping up on April 22 at the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. The European leg of the trek is still scheduled to begin on May 25 in Birmingham, England as of press time.
