Celine Dion cancels several concerts for health reasons

Quebec singer Celine Dion has announced the cancellation of some forty concerts scheduled in Europe until April 2024 due to health problems. The organizers of his tour confirmed this decision in a press release sent to Agence France-Presse.

A rare neurological pathology

Celine Dion suffers from a rare neurological pathology for which she continues her treatment. In December, she had already announced the cancellation or postponement of concerts scheduled in Europe between February and July 2023. In the press release, the 55-year-old singer said: “I am so sorry to disappoint you once again. I work very hard to regain my strength, but the tours can be demanding and difficult (…). Although it breaks my heart, it’s better to cancel everything now, until I’m really ready to go back on stage. Celine Dion adds that it would be unfair to spectators to postpone the concerts once again.
