Following her announcement last December that she would be postponing her Courage World Tour due to her diagnosis of stiff-person syndrome (SPS), Celine Dion has cancelled the tour’s remaining shows due to her longstanding illness.
Last year, Dion revealed she had been struggling with her health and, as a result of her incurable neurological disorder, was experiencing spasms that affected multiple aspects of her life, including walking and singing. The singer had previously completed 52 dates prior to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.
Dion announced the cancellation on Friday and apologised to her fans via a press release, explaining that touring could be difficult even if one was in the best of health. The I’m Alive singer added that it was not fair for her to continuously postpone the tour.
“It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again. I want you all to know I’m not giving up,” Dion stated.
Fans of the artiste will receive a refund for their purchased tickets for the cancelled shows.
