Offended by Press, Celine Dion Cancels a Canadian Gig

The unwelcoming column in Halifax Daily News has berated Celine Dion to the point where she cancels the show.

Offended by an article written by a Canadian journalist, Celine Dion cancelled a performance in the country. David Rodenhiser of Halifax Daily News wrote an unwelcoming headline about her upcoming show in Halifax, Canada, forcing Celine to pull the plug.

On a November 8 column, Rodenheiser wrote "Oh, no. Say it ain't so. Celine Dion is our big Concert on the Common news? What could be more of a letdown?" under the heading "Like her or not, it's good news."

After discovering the article, Celine's husband and manager, Rene Angelil announced that there won't be a show in Halifax due to the specific reason. The article apparently drew online criticism against Celine from some of the local residents.

Angelil told Halifax Media in a phone interview, "I'm gonna tell you something and I hope everyone is listening. Don't try to find any reasons for cancelling the concert. There's only one reason and you know what it is. I'm not saying that all people in Halifax are negative, but this is a question of feeling. We're humans. If you would go to a city and you read day after day 'This is not for you, you shouldn't have come, I expected someone else,' I don't know how you would feel about going there."

Not being mistaken for unable to receive criticism, Angelil added, "We get negative reactions all the time when they review her records or shows. I mean, this is part of the game. But we never got negative reactions before an event."
