San Diego, CA–Celine Dion’s April 5 show at Pechanga Arena in San Diego has been canceled due to the singer’s battle with health issues.
Dion’s North American “Courage World Tour” previously rescheduled for March 9 to April 22 was also canceled.
She had completed the first 52 shows on the tour before the pandemic emerged in March 2020, but recently has been treated for severe and persistent muscle spasms which are preventing her from performing, and her recovery is taking longer than she hoped. Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat the condition.
Dion said in a statement:
“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.”
Tickets purchased with a credit card through authorized ticketing outlets will be refunded automatically to the credit card used for purchase. Ticket holders of the canceled performances will receive an email notification with more information. For further inquiries, ticket holders should reach out to their original point of purchase.
The European leg of Dion’s “Courage World Tour” is still scheduled to begin May 25 in Birmingham, England.
