Singer, Celine Dion has canceled the launch of her new Las Vegas residency over “severe and persistent muscle spasms,” she announced Tuesday, October 19.
The medical challenge has been preventing her from performing, so the “Taking Chances” songstress is canceling her dates that were originally scheduled from Nov. 5 to Nov. 21, 2021, and Jan. 19 to Feb. 5, 2022.
“I’m heartbroken by this. My team and I have been working on our new show for the past eight months, and to not be able to open this November saddens me beyond words,” Dion said in a statement.
“My partners at Resorts World Las Vegas and AEG have been working around the clock to get this brand-new state-of-the-art theatre ready, and it’s absolutely beautiful. I feel so bad that I’m letting them down, and I’m especially sorry for disappointing all the fans who’ve been making their plans to come to Las Vegas.
“Now, I have to focus on getting better … I want to get through this as soon as I can.”
According to her management, ticket holders for the canceled performances will receive a full refund. They will also receive a pre-sale opportunity for first access to purchase tickets when the new dates are announced.
The 53-year-old’s “Courage World Tour” is still scheduled to resume on March 9, 2022.
