AceShowbiz - Bad news, Celine Dion fans. The songstress has canceled fourteen performances at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas starting from March 27 to April 18 as she undergoes surgery for an ear issue. Her team announced the news on Facebook on Wednesday, March 21.
"Celine has been dealing with a condition in her middle ear known as Patulous Eustachian tube, which cause hearing irregularities, and makes it extremely difficult to sing," so the announcement read. "She has been experiencing this condition for the past 12-18 months but it has been successfully treated with various ear drop medications."
Her team went on explaining that the medications she's been taking for the past couple of weeks "have no longer been working to treat the condition, so she will undergo a minimally invasive surgical procedure to correct the problem."
The "My Heart Will Go On" hitmaker also released a statement regarding the cancellation. "My luck hasn't been very good lately... I've been so looking forward to doing my shows again and this happens... I just can't believe it!" she wrote. "I apologize to everyone who planned to travel to Las Vegas to see my show. I know how disappointing this is, and I'm so sorry."
Celine is expected to continue her residency on May 22. A refund will be available for those who purchased tickets to one of the canceled performances.
This wasn't the first time Celine was forced to cancel some of her Las Vegas shows due to health issue. In January, she canceled seven shows after suffering from congestion and irritation of the vocal chords due to a lingering cold. Fortunately, Adele was able to cheer her up during her "rough time."
"I had a pretty rough time during the last couple of weeks... a lot of people have been hit with cold and flu bugs... but I'm doing much better now," Celine wrote on Instagram. "Wasn't able to do all my shows, but was thrilled that Adele came to one of them... I love her so much!"
