A “heartbroken” Celine Dion has postponed her return to the Las Vegas stage due to “severe and persistent muscle spasms,” according to a statement posted by the singer Tuesday on Instagram.
The five-time Grammy winner was scheduled to open Nov. 5 at Resorts World on the Strip but has canceled 21 performances there through Feb. 5.
“I’m heartbroken by this,” Dion wrote. “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.”
“I’m especially sorry for disappointing all the fans who’ve been making their plans to come to Las Vegas,” she continued. “Now, I have to focus on getting better.”
John Meglen, president and co-CEO of Concerts West/AEG Presents, which manages Dion’s shows, said in the statement that new performance dates would be announced when she is ready, People reported.
Dion concluded a 16-year residency at Caesars Palace in June 2019.
The Canadian star is still planning to begin her Courage World Tour on March 9, 2022, as planned, People noted.
