Celine Dion is canceling the US tour including Phoenix for health reasons

Celine Dion has canceled the remaining shows of the North American leg of her Courage World Tour, including April 8 at Glendale’s Gila River Arena, as she recovers from a recent health problem.

Dion had completed the first 52 shows of the tour before the pandemic forced her to reschedule all of her March 2020 dates, but was recently treated for severe and persistent muscle spasms that prevent her from performing.

Her recovery is taking longer than expected. Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat the condition.

In a press release, Dion said: “I was really hoping that I would be ready to go now, but I suppose I just need to be more patient and follow the regimen that my doctors prescribe. There’s a lot of organization and preparation that goes into our shows and so we have to make decisions today that will impact plans two months from now.”

How ticket holders can get refunds

She continued that she was “very touched by all the encouraging words everyone has sent me on social media,” adding, “I feel your love and support and it means the world to me.”

Tickets purchased with a credit card through authorized ticket outlets will be automatically refunded to the credit card used for the purchase. Ticket holders of the canceled performances will receive an email notification with further information. For further questions, ticket holders should contact their original point of sale.
