LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Celine Dion, one of Las Vegas's biggest entertainment stars of this century, has canceled her European tour, which was supposed to run through April next year.
The singer announced Friday that she continues to get treatment for her medical condition but cannot prepare for or perform at the tour.
"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%," Dion said in a statement. "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."
Tickets will be refunded through the point of sale.
One of the best-selling performers in Las Vegas in recent years, Dion announced in December that she was diagnosed with a neurological condition known as "stiff person syndrome."
The condition is extremely rare, with only about one out of 1 million people diagnosed. The Cleveland Clinic says it affects the central nervous system and can cause painful muscle spasms, limiting the ability to move or walk.
Dion headlined the concert residency "Celine" for years at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. She was originally lined up as an inaugural headliner for Resorts World Las Vegas but delayed the start in 2021, citing muscle spasms at the time.
