Celine Dion is delaying the opening of her new present within the new Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas on account of unexpected medical signs, promoter AEG Presents introduced on Tuesday morning. 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” that are stopping her from performing. Her medical staff continues to guage and deal with her. However, the signs she is experiencing are prohibiting her from collaborating within the ongoing rehearsals for the brand new present. Dion’s “Courage” world tour continues to be scheduled to launch on March 9, 2022, so it’s unclear when the Resorts reveals could also be rescheduled.

“I’m heartbroken by this,” stated Celine. “My team and I have been working on our new show for the past eight months, and to not be able to open this November saddens me beyond words. My partners at Resorts World Las Vegas and AEG have been working around the clock to get this brand-new state-of-the-art theatre ready, and it’s absolutely beautiful. I feel so bad that I’m letting them down, and I’m especially sorry for disappointing all the fans who’ve been making their plans to come to Las Vegas. Now, I have to focus on getting better… I want to get through this as soon as I can.”
“Celine is family to us, and the most important thing now is for her to focus on feeling better,“ said John Meglen, president and co-CEO of Concerts West/AEG Presents. “In our two-decade long relationship with Celine, we’ve certainly learned how dedicated and resilient she is, and that she is most happy when she’s on stage doing what she loves most, performing for her fans. We’re ready to announce new Las Vegas show dates whenever Celine is ready.”
“If there’s anything these trying times have taught us, it’s that nothing is more important than your wellbeing,” stated Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas. “While we are eager to debut the theatre, we support Celine in what we know was an incredibly difficult decision to delay her shows. On behalf of the entire Resorts World Las Vegas family, we wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to welcoming her to her new home when she feels ready and able to perform again.”
