SALT LAKE CITY — Celine Dion has delivered bad news for her fans who were planning to see her perform live at Vivint Arena in March — as well as more than a dozen other locations.
The singer announced on Saturday that the remaining shows of the North American leg of her “Courage World Tour” will be canceled due to her continued recovery from a health issue.
Dion was scheduled to perform across the United States and Canada from March 9 to April 22. She had already performed 52 shows on the tour before the COVID-19 pandemic brought her to a halt, according to a press release about the cancellation.
The announcement says Dion was treated for “severe and persistent muscle spasms” that left her unable to perform, and she said the recovery process took longer than she had hoped. Medical staff will continue to assess and treat his condition.
“I was really hoping I would be ready to go now, but I guess I just have to be more patient and follow the regimen my doctors prescribe,” Dion said in a statement. “There is a lot of planning and preparation that goes into our shows, and so we have to make decisions today that will affect plans two months from now. I will be so happy to be back to full health, as well as all of us to overcome this pandemic, and I can’t wait to be back on stage. In the meantime, I’ve been so touched by all the words of encouragement everyone has sent me on social media. I feel your love and your support and that means the world to me.
