Celine Dion is leaving her fans heartbroken as she has been forced to delay her upcoming Las Vegas Residency due to health issues.
The legendary singer took to social media to announce the devastating news via a statement that explained that unforeseen medical symptoms were responsible for the postponement.
“The Power Of Love” crooner had been experiencing “severe and persistent muscle spams,” according to the release. Upon evaluation from her medical team, she won’t be able to join ongoing rehearsals or perform.
The Las Vegas Residency was set to hold at Resorts World Theatre beginning in early November. However, the performances scheduled from November 5 to November 20, 2021, and January 19 to February 5, 2022, are canceled.
Ticket holders of the canceled performances will receive a full refund and, as compensation, be given a “pre-sale opportunity for first access” to purchase tickets for new dates once announced. Alongside the statement, Dion expressed her pain at the delay, writing:
I’m heartbroken by this. My team and I have been working on our new show for the past eight months, and to not be able to open this November saddens me beyond words.
The 53-year-old explained that she and her partners at Resorts World Las Vegas and AEG have been working so hard to bring the concerts to life in the new state-of-the-art theatre, so she felt bad for letting them down.
Dion sent out a heartfelt apology to fans who had been looking forward to coming to Las Vegas because of the shows. She then concluded her message, writing, “now, I have to focus on getting better… I want to get through this as soon as I can. – Celine xx.”
Fans and colleagues had nothing but encouraging words in the comments section as they sent the singer best wishes about her health.
An Upcoming Documentary
As The Blast previously reported, last month, the French-Canadian singer shared her thoughts about an upcoming documentary about her life and career, which was ordered by Sony Music.

In a press release, the mother-of-three revealed she was ecstatic about the project and shared her hopes for the documentary to show fans a side of her they hadn’t seen before. The documentary will take a deep look into her life, career, and stories behind some of her hit songs.
Academy Award nominee Irene Taylor will work closely with Dion to bring the piece to life, and the legendary singer seems more than pleased about their collaboration.
