Celine Dion has announced the cancellation of the remaining 16 shows of her world tour, due to ongoing health issues.
The Canadian singer said she was recovering from “severe and persistent muscle spasms,” that were hindering her ability to perform, according to a post published from her verified Instagram account on Saturday.

The remaining shows of her Courage World Tour had been rearranged to take place from March 9 to April 12 of this year. However, they have since been called off while her medical team assesses and treats her condition.
Dion said in the Instagram post published.

Speaking about the cancelation of the North American leg of the tour, Dion added, “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.“
