Celine Dion cancels rest of world tour due to medical condition

Four months ago, the 55-year old Quebecoise singer revealed that she had been diagnosed with a rare neurologic disorder called stiff-persons syndrome which causes muscle spasms. The disorder caused her to cancel some European dates on her ‘Courage World Tour’.

The European leg of the tour would have consisted of 42 shows in seven cities between late August and early October, followed by 17 more cities in spring 2024. Dion announced that ticket holders will receive refunds.

The condition causes muscle stiffness and an increased sensitivity to sounds, touch and emotions that can cause spasms. The condition caused the Grammy-winning singer to delay her Las Vegas residency until October 2021.

Rene Angelil, her husband and manager, died in 2016 from throat cancer. The couple had three children.
