Celine Dion continues to struggle with health issues, which have forced her to call off three residency performances in Sin City this month. The ailing Canadian international superstar apologized profusely after canceling her latest scheduled appearance on Jan. 13 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in order to continue to heal from symptoms of congestion and severe inflammation of the throat.
Music-News reports on Jan. 14 that the five-time Grammy winner asked her fans' forgiveness on Saturday via Facebook and other social media accounts, writing that she was “truly sorry” and that canceling another show was “the hardest thing” for her to do. Following a busy holiday schedule over the holiday season, which included two special shows at Caesars Palace on Dec. 30 and New Year's Eve, the beloved pop diva fell ill and initially canceled shows at The Colosseum on Jan. 6 and Jan. 9 in order to rest her voice and recover.
The feisty chanteuse attempted to soldier through a show on Fri., Jan 12 in Las Vegas, but visibly struggled to get through the night, prompting her doctor to insist on canceling Saturday night's show. It's hoped that the “My Heart Will Go On" hitmaker will be fully recovered in time for her next scheduled Las Vegas appearance on Tues., Jan. 16.
“I don’t know what to say, other than I’m truly sorry for having to cancel tonight’s show and the two shows from last week,” writes Dion in her Facebook update. “I know that I’m disappointing you, the people who support me the most and it hurts me beyond words.”
Refunds for the canceled shows are available at point of purchase. Fans who purchased tickets via credit cards will automatically receive refunds via the card used for purchase. For more details, click here.
