Celine Dion is delaying the opening of her new show in the new Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas due to unforeseen medical symptoms, promoter AEG Presents announced. The affected performances run from November 5 to 20, 2021, and January 19 to February 5, 2022.
According to the announcement, the singer has been experiencing “severe and persistent muscle spasms” which are preventing her from performing. Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat her. However, the symptoms she is experiencing are prohibiting her from participating in the ongoing rehearsals for the new show. Dion’s “Courage” world tour is still scheduled to launch on March 9, 2022, so it’s unclear when the Resorts shows may be rescheduled.
What sickness does Celine Dion have?
As of now, no specific details on Celine’s illness have been given. It’s possible that the singer and her team don’t yet know exactly what’s going on. But hopefully, her health issues won’t keep her away from Vegas for long. This set of shows would be her third residency in the city.

Celine Dion has also spoken about why she loves performing in Vegas.
“Vegas had given us, my family and I, an opportunity for me to be a mom, for them to be kids, for me to perform for my fans and to practice my passion, and every night come home. That is rare.”
This latest residency would have also been the first time Celine performed at Resorts World, the newest hotel on the Las Vegas strip. When the residency was first announced, she was said to be performing with Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, and Luke Bryan. Given the recent cancelation, it’s unclear if the dates with her special guests will be rescheduled.
