What’s Wrong with Celine Dion? Singer Cancels Balance of US 2022 Dates After Earlier Scrapping Dozens of Shows

Celine Dion has cancelled all her US tour dates this winter and spring over health concerns. Her statement indicates that she will try to resume performing in the UK in late May. But right now that looks iffy.

She writes on Instagram:
“I was really hoping that I’d be good to go by now, but I suppose I just have to be more patient and follow the regimen that my doctors are prescribing. There’s a lot of organizing and preparation that goes into our shows, and so we have to make decisions today which will affect the plans two months down the road. I’ll be so glad to get back to full health, as well as all of us getting past this pandemic, and I can’t wait to be back on stage again. Meanwhile, I’ve been very touched by all the words of encouragement that everyone’s been sending to me on social media. I feel your love and support and it means the world to me. – Celine xx…”

Her management’s official statement says she’s still suffering from “severe and persistent spasms.” Ouch! (Maybe it was all that chest thumping, her signature move of expression.) She’d previously canceled shows in November 2020 and this month in Las Vegas for the same reason. What’s really going on? Let’s hope she feels better soon regardless of touring. Back spasms are no fun.
