Celine Dion Mystery Illness Causes Cancellation of Las Vegas Residency Now and In January 2022


Celine Dion’s heart will go on but not her shows.

The Canadian superstar just cancelled all her Las Vegas shows for the foreseeable future. She has a residency set to begin November 5th through the 20th at Resorts World Theatre and a second run from  Jan. 19 to Feb. 5, 2022.

Celine says she’s suffering from “severe and persistent muscle spasms.” She says in a statement: “I feel so bad that I’m letting them down, and I’m especially sorry for disappointing all the fans who’ve been making their plans to come to Las Vegas.”

Celine has often been the subject of stories about extreme weight loss. But this sounds a little more serious, and it sounds like she knows it, too. So sending get well wishes, and that whatever this is can be cleared up quickly.
