Celine Dion cancels all remaining concerts due to poor health

Following a diagnosis of a rare neurological condition, Celine Dion has canceled every one of her scheduled live performances and informed fans that she is not healthy enough to tour.

The singer disclosed last year that Stiff-Person Syndrome (SPS), which was impairing her voice, was a problem for her.

All of Dion’s gigs that she had planned for 2023 and 2024 have now been canceled.

I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again, the 55-year-old said in a statement shared on Twitter to his followers.Even if it pains me, it’s best if we postpone things until I’m fully prepared to return to the stage.

She continued, “I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!”

The French Canadian singer announced in December 2022 that she had been diagnosed with SPS and would not be able to embark on a February 2023 European tour as scheduled in an emotional Instagram video.

She said that the condition was causing muscle spasms and “not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to”.

When Dion’s Courage World Tour started in 2019, she performed 52 gigs before the Covid-19 outbreak forced her to postpone the remaining dates.

Due to health issues, she later postponed the European portion of the tour and cancelled the North American dates.

The postponed European concerts, which included those in London, Dublin, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Stockholm, and Zurich, were all canceled on Friday.

In a statement, her tour stated that it had “a sense of tremendous disappointment” about having to cancel the events.

The statement paraphrased Dion as stating, “I’m working incredibly hard to build back my strength, but touring can be really challenging even when you’re 100%.

Dion was scheduled to embark on her first world tour in ten years without her manager and husband Rene Angelil, who passed away from cancer in 2016.

My Heart Will Go On, Because You Loved Me, All By Myself, and It’s All Coming Back To Me Now are among Dion’s best-known songs.

Is there a cure for stiff person syndrome?

SPS is an uncommon and poorly understood disorder.

It is characterized by varying muscle rigidity in the trunk and limbs as well as a heightened sensitivity to stimuli including noise, touch, and emotional distress that can cause muscle spasms, according to the National Institute for Neurological Disorders.

According to the agency, the disease is characterized by abnormal postures that are frequently slumped over and inflexible.

Because street noises, like the sound of a horn, can produce spasms and falls, people with SPS may be unable to walk or move, or they may be scared to leave the house.

As a result of their frequent falls and lack of normal defensive reflexes, most SPS sufferers risk suffering serious injuries.

While there is no known cure for SPS, there are treatments that can slow down the disease’s course, such as muscle relaxants and anti-anxiety medications.
