Singer Celine Dion has announced the cancellation of a month of shows from her Las Vegas residency so she can deal with a medical condition.
The shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace from March 27 to April 18 are now off due to a problem in the middle ear with the Patulous Eustachian tube. According to a statement issued about the cancellations, the condition causes hearing problems and has made it hard for Celine to sing.
Dion has had a couple of very rough years that started in January 2016 with the death of both her husband and brother from cancer. Since that time, she has suffered a number of other setbacks including the cancellation of shows in January due to a throat infection.
The statement from Dion’s management:
We regret to inform you that the performances of Céline at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace scheduled for March 27 through April 18 have been cancelled. Céline has been dealing with a condition in her middle ear known as Patulous Eustachian tube, which causes hearing irregularities, and makes it extremely difficult to sing.
She has been experiencing this condition for the past 12-18 months but it has been successfully treated with various ear drop medications. During the past couple of weeks these medications have no longer been working to treat the condition, so she will undergo a minimally invasive surgical procedure to correct the problem.
“My luck hasn’t been very good lately… I’ve been so looking forward to doing my shows again and this happens…. I just can’t believe it! I apologize to everyone who planned to travel to Las Vegas to see my show. I know how disappointing this is, and I’m so sorry.” – Céline
Céline is expected to resume performances at The Colosseum as scheduled on Tuesday, May 22nd.
