Celine Dion Cancels Las Vegas Concerts to Undergo Surgery
Celine Dion is taking some time off to focus on her health.
The pop superstar’s team revealed Wednesday that she had to cancel a series of her Las Vegas shows in March and April to “undergo a minimally invasive surgical procedure” to correct an ear issue she’s been suffering from for awhile.
“We regret to inform you that the performances of Celine at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace scheduled for March 27 through April 18 have been cancelled,” the post read. “Celine has been dealing with a condition in her middle ear known as Patulous Eustachian tube, which causes hearing irregularities, and makes it extremely difficult to sing.”
Dion had been dealing with the condition for the past 12-18 months, her team revealed, adding that they had been able to successfully treat it with "various ear drop medications." Those medications, however, have since stopped working.
Dion also chimed in on the post and apologized to fans, writing, “My luck hasn’t been very good lately ... I’ve been so looking forward to doing my shows again and this happens.” She continued, “I just can’t believe it! I apologize to everyone who planned to travel to Las Vegas to see my show. I know how disappointing this is, and I’m so sorry."
The “My Heart Will Go On” crooner is expected to be fully recovered and ready hit the stage again at the Colosseum on May 22nd.
News of the show cancellations comes a couple of months after Dion had to cancel performances back in January due to a health issue.
We wish her a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
