Celine Dion is canceling the remaining days in North America of her Courage World Tour in an effort to recover from ongoing medical issues.
According to a statement posted on Saturday (Jan . 15) on her website and social media accounts.
“I really hope that I will be good to go now, but I suppose I just need to be more patient and stick to the regimen my doctor is prescribing,” Dion said in a statement. “There’s been a lot of planning and preparation for our shows, and so we have to make a decision today, which will affect our plans for the next two months.”
She added, “I will be happy to return to full health, as we have all made it through this pandemic, and I can’t wait to be back on stage again. Meanwhile, I am deeply moved by the words of encouragement that people have sent to me on social media. I feel your love and support and it means so much to me.”
