Celine Dion was preparing to return to the road to continue her ‘Courage World Tour’ that began before the pandemic. Due to her rare health condition, the singer announced on Instagram that she had to cancel the remainder of the tour. The post read:
“It is with tremendous disappointment that we have to announce today the cancellation of the ‘Courage World Tour.'”
Celine had previously shared a video on Instagram about how Stiff-Person Syndrome has affected her everyday activities, singing and performing. She included a personal message for her fans in the post to inform her fans about how her health has been and why she decided to cancel the rest of the dates. The singer said:
“I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again. I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%. It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again. I want you all to know I’m not giving up, and I can’t wait to see you again!”
The post also ensured fans that the tickets would be refunded at the point of purchase, stating:
“Tickets purchased for the forty-two canceled dates will be refunded via the original point of sale. For further ticket inquiries or options, ticketholders should reach out to their original point of purchase.”
