Céline Dion postpones Las Vegas shows due to ‘unforeseen’ medical issues

Céline Dion is putting her upcoming Las Vegas residency on hold until further notice as she deals with “unforeseen” medical symptoms.

The Quebec-born music star announced on her official Twitter account that she’s been experiencing “severe and persistent” muscle spasms that are keeping her from rehearsals, just weeks before the shows were set to begin.

The songstress is being closely monitored and treated by medical professionals, and she says she has to prioritize her health.

As of this writing, it’s unclear what, exactly, is causing the spasms, or where on her body they’re taking place.

“Now, I have to focus on getting better,” she said. “I want to get through this as soon as I can.”

Dion’s series of shows at the Resorts World Theatre was set to open next month in Las Vegas. All performances from Nov. 5 to 20, as well as those slated for Jan. 19 to Feb. 5, 2022, have been cancelled.
