Celine Dion CANCELS World Tour Amid Health Battle

Celine Dion has canceled her World Tour through April 2024 as she continues battling an incurable neurological disorder.

The Canadian singer, 55, made the announcement on Twitter and Instagram and let her fans know that she is extremely sorry to disappoint her fans who were looking forward to attend her concerts.

“I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again. I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%. It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again,” she wrote.

“I want you all to know, I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!” – Celine xx…”

The I’m Alive singer also confirmed that all the will be refunded.

She also posted a message for her fans on Twitter and a screenshot of all the 42 canceled dates of her Courage world tour and said she is heartbroken but will not give up.

“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!” the Twitter statement read.

After sharing the sad news, Dion’s comment sections are flooded with messages of hope and support, and people are wishing her a speedy recovery from her illness.

“Dear Céline, you aren’t disappointing us. I am very happy that now you can focus on your health without this pressure. I am extremely sad that you are going through all of this and wish you all the health in the world. Hopefully we will see you again, when you are ready,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

“Your health takes priority. Céline, don’t worry for us. We are here for YOU now. Many warm hugs to you. Don’t give up hope. Love you always,” a second said.

“No need to rush, your health is priority. We wanted to see Celine more in the future and for that to happen you have to be in good shape. We’re praying for you Celine for your fast recovery. We’ll always be here for you! I love you!” a third added.

“Well, it is a tremendous disappointment, but the most important is Celine Dion’s well-being. Nothing but the love and strength to the best female vocalist of all time,” a fourth fan commented.

“Sending love and light for healing. Wishing you all the best,” wrote another.

Last year in December, Celine revealed that she was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder called Stiff Person Syndrome that can cause crippling muscle spasms.

“I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time, and it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through,” she announced on Instagram.

Sufferers eventually become ‘human statues’ as their bodies become rigid, and they cannot move or speak. 

Although there is currently no cure for SPS, treatments can slow down its progression. Celine said she was doing everything she can to minimize her symptoms. 

The My Heart Will Go On singer also explained how the condition has affected every aspect of her daily life, including her ability to walk and vocalize normally.

“It hurts me to tell you today that this means I won’t be ready to restart my tour in Europe in February. I have a great team of doctors working alongside me to help me get better and my precious children who are supporting me and giving me help,” she said.

“I’m working hard with my sports medicine therapist every day to build bac my strength and my ability to perform again but I have to admit it’s been a struggle.”

She announced on her website that she had been treated for severe and persistent muscle spasms, which prevent her from performing, and that her recovery is taking longer than expected.
