DENVER — Iconic songstress Celine Dion will not be near, but far, from Colorado this March.
The music superstar has canceled the remaining North American tour dates on her "Courage World Tour," including a planned stop at Denver's Ball Arena on March 9, 2022.
Tour organizers said the spring concerts have been canceled while Dion continues to recovery from recent health issues.
"Celine 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," said a statement on Dion's website. "Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat the condition."
"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," said Dion. "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 soon receive an email notification with more information. For additional information and tour, updates visit celinedion.com/tour.
Dion held the first concert ever at Ball Arena on Oct. 1, 1999.
