Celine Dion, a Canadian pop singer, announced Friday, 26 May, that she would cancel the European leg of her tour scheduled to resume in this summer due to a health condition that made it difficult for her perform.

Four months ago, the 55-year old Quebecoise singer revealed that she had been diagnosed with a rare neurologic disorder called stiff-persons syndrome which causes muscle spasms. The disorder caused her to cancel some European dates on her 'Courage World Tour'.

The singer, best known for Titanic's theme song My Heart Will Go On, wrote on Instagram Friday: "I am so sorry that I have disappointed you all once again.

The European leg of the tour would have consisted of 42 shows in seven cities between late August and early October, followed by 17 more cities in spring 2024. Dion announced that ticket holders will receive refunds.

The condition causes muscle stiffness and an increased sensitivity to sounds, touch and emotions that can cause spasms. The condition caused the Grammy-winning singer to delay her Las Vegas residency until October 2021.

In September 2019, the tour, her first in the United States for 10 years, began in Quebec City. The tour was also accompanied by her new album, Courage.

Rene Angelil, her husband and manager, died in 2016 from throat cancer. The couple had three children.
