Ongoing recovery from recent health issues is the cause
Celine Dion has been forced to cancel the remaining North American Courage World Tour dates due to her recovery from recent health issue continues. Previously rescheduled for March 9th through April 22nd are affected. Dion had completed the first 52 shows on the tour before the pandemic emerged in March 2020, but recently has been treated for severe and persistent muscle spasms which are preventing her from performing, and her recovery is taking longer than she hoped. Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat the condition.
“I was really hoping that I’d be good to go by now, but I suppose I just have to be more patient and follow the regimen that my doctors are prescribing,” Dion shares in a statement. “There’s a lot of organizing and preparation that goes into our shows, and so we have to make decisions today which will affect the plans two months down the road. I’ll be so glad to get back to full health, as well as all of us getting past this pandemic, and I can’t wait to be back on stage again. Meanwhile, I’ve been very touched by all the words of encouragement that everyone’s been sending to me on social media. I feel your love and support and it means the world to me.”
Tickets purchased with a credit card through authorized ticketing outlets will be refunded automatically to the credit card used for purchase. Ticket holders of the cancelled performances will soon receive an email notification with more information. For further inquiries, ticket holders should reach out to their original point of purchase.
The European leg of the trek is still scheduled to begin May 25th in Birmingham, England.
In October, Dion had announced the postponement of her new Resorts World Las Vegas residency due to the same issues. The singer was forced to delay the opening and cancel the performances scheduled November 5 to 20, 2021 and January 19 to February 5, 2022. No new dates have been announced as of press time.
