Celine Dion, a pop icon, has canceled all of her remaining 2023-2024 performances, claiming that she is unable to tour because of a rare neurological disorder.
The 55-year-old Canadian singer revealed in December 2022 that her condition, Stiff-Person Syndrome, was affecting her singing and that she would not be ready to begin her planned European tour in February.
Dion wrote in a tweet,
“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”
“I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!” she added.
A statement released by her tour said, “With a sense of tremendous disappointment, Celine Dion’s Courage World Tour today announced the cancellation of all remaining dates currently on sale for 2023 and 2024.”
Celine Dion is one of the best female singers in the world, and is the author of songs like “Because You Loved Me,” “My Heart Will Go On,” and “Think Twice.”
Dion claimed that the disorder was making her muscles tense and preventing her from singing normally.
Victims of this disease generally experience solid muscles in the middle, arms and legs, with noise or emotional distress known to set off fits.
The cancellations will affect her 16-country tour in Europe which was due to start in Amsterdam in August and conclude with two dates at the O2 arena in London in April next year.
Before the coronavirus pandemic put the rest of her “Courage World Tour” on hold, Dion performed 52 shows. Due to health issues, she later canceled the North American portion of the tour.
