Pop icon Celine Dion has announced the cancellation of all her remaining shows scheduled for 2023-2024, saying she isn’t strong enough to tour.
Dion revealed that she is battling a rare neurological disorder that is affecting her singing career.
“I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again… and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything until I’m really ready to be back on stage,” the My Heart Will Go On songstress tweeted.
“I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!” she added.
In December 2022, the 55-year-old Canadian singer posted a tearful video on Instagram to say she had recently been diagnosed with Stiff-Person Syndrome and would not be ready to start a European tour in February as planned.
She said the disorder was causing muscle spasms and was “not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to.”
The “Courage World Tour” began in 2019, and Dion completed 52 shows before the Covid-19 pandemic put the remainder on hold.
She later cancelled the North American section of the tour due to health problems.
The tour was to have been the Grammy-winning winner’s first global concert tour in a decade and the first without her husband-manager Rene Angelil, who died from cancer in 2016.
