After "severe and persistent muscle spasms" led Céline Dion to cancel a Las Vegas residency in October, the singer has now cancelled a series of North American dates on her "Courage World Tour."

An announcement made over the weekend (January 15) confirms that Dion "unfortunately must cancel the remaining shows of the North American leg of her 'Courage World Tour' previously rescheduled for March 9 – April 22, 2022."

"Celine 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," the statement continues.

Cancelled performances include Western Canadian dates Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton and Vancouver. You can find Dion's affected North American itinerary below. At this time, the European leg of Dion's "Courage World Tour" is still slated to begin May 25 in Birmingham, England.

"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 shared in a statement of her own. "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 for affected performances that were purchased with a credit card through authorized ticketing outlets will be refunded automatically to the card used for purchase. Ticket holders of the cancelled performances will soon receive an email notification with more information. Ticket holders can reach out to their original point of purchase for further inquiries.
