Celine Dion continues to have bad luck with her health in 2018. On the heels of being forced to cancel a number of residency dates in January due to a severe throat inflammation, the Canadian international superstar has announced the cancellation of all shows between March 27 – April 18 in Las Vegas at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace due to an impending surgery for a middle ear condition.
The five-time Grammy winner announced the sad news on March 22 via promoter AEG Presents. The ailing chanteuse revealed she has been suffering from the hearing condition for more than a year.
Ear drop medications worked successfully for the singer in the past, but ceased to be effective in recent months. As a result, the multi-platinum seller will undergo minor surgery to correct the issue.
Full refunds for all canceled shows shows will be available to ticket holders at point of purchase. Fans who purchased tickets with credit cards will be automatically refunded via the card used for purchase. Click here, for more details.
"My luck hasn’t been very good lately," writes the “My Heart Will Go On” hitmaker in a statement. “I’ve been so looking forward to doing my shows again and this happens.”
“I apologize to everyone who planned to travel to Las Vegas to see my show,” Dion adds. "I know how disappointing this is and I’m so sorry."
The beloved pop diva expanded her Celine Dion Live 2018 Tour schedule last month with dates in Australia and New Zealand. The summer trek will launch July 27 in Sydney, Australia, at Qudos Bank Arena and wrap up Aug. 14 in Auckland, New Zealand, at Spark Arena.
