Celine Dion has announced what appears to be the indefinite postponement of her forthcoming Las Vegas residency.
Full story below…
The new show, which follows the singer’s blockbuster residences in Sin City, was set to kick off in November at the newly built Resorts World.
However, in a joint statement, Dion and promoter AEG revealed that the residency has been delayed due to “severe and persistent muscle spasms.”
The ‘My Heart Will Go On’ belter said:
“I’m heartbroken by this. 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.”
John Meglen, president and co-CEO of Concerts West/AEG Presents added:
“Celine is family to us, and the most important thing now is for her to focus on feeling better. 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.”
Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas concluded:
“If there’s anything these trying times have taught us, it’s that nothing is more important than your wellbeing. 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.”
Here’s wishing Celine a speedy recovery.
Omg! I hope she’s ok. She needs to eat some mo food hunnie. She’s looking unhealthy and bony💅🏿
I was hoping to see her in this new residency! But her health is what matters now! Stay healthy and everything will be good Celine!
We Love You ❤️
First her raspy speaking voice worried me. Then the venue caught fire. Now this? Céline my gurl, but intense training like a young ballerina—as a frail, menopausal 50something—was bound to yield trouble. Time to be
(in Sheryl Crow’s voice) “Leaving Las Vegas.” Katy Perry’s milkshake shooting booobies will do just fine.
