Your heart would like to go on …
Singer Celine Dion (53, “My Heart Will Go On”) has to cancel her performances in Las Vegas due to health problems. “Severe and persistent muscle cramps” would prevent the singer from being on stage, the singer shared on Instagram.
She is being treated by her medical team, but is currently unable to attend rehearsals for the planned show. She was “heartbroken,” Dion commented on the rejection. Preparations for the show had been going on for eight months. It makes her very sad to disappoint her fans, but now she has to concentrate fully on her health.
The new show was due to start on November 5th at the Resorts World Theater in the casino city of Las Vegas (US state Nevada). 20 planned performances were planned until the beginning of February, which are now canceled. According to a message on Instagram, Dion wants to continue her “Courage World Tour” as planned on March 9th.
The Canadian star performed regularly in Las Vegas – with some longer interruptions – from 2003 to 2019. In 2007 she stopped after the five-year glitter show “A New Day”, only to return in the spring of 2011. In 2014/15, Dion took a break because of her husband René Angélil’s cancer, which she was taking care of. After Angélil died in early 2016, Dion resumed the shows. Most recently, she canceled performances in 2018 after undergoing ear surgery, but returned to the stage two months later.
And it’s worth it: Dion’s income easily exceeds that of stars like Britney Spears, Elton John or Lady Gaga, who have also made guest appearances in Las Vegas. She received $ 385 million for her 717 “A New Day” shows (2003-2007) and $ 233 million for the 399 “Celine” shows (2011-2019), reports the US magazine “PageSix“.
In November 2019, the mother of three released her album “Courage”. Dion has sold more than 250 million albums worldwide and is one of the most successful musicians of her generation.
