Citing her ongoing health issues, Céline Dion has made the tough choice to cancel the rest of the scheduled North American concerts on her Courage world tour.
During a pause in the tour, she had been treated for severe and persistent muscle spasms which prevented her from performing.
Dion’s recovery is taking longer than she hoped, and her medical team continues to evaluate and treat the condition.
“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,” Dion said in a news release.
“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.”
The remainder of her tour included some Canadian stops: Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton and Vancouver.
According to a news release, tickets purchased with a credit card through authorized ticketing outlets will be refunded automatically to the credit card used for purchase. Ticket holders of the cancelled performances will soon receive an email notification with more information.
“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.”
