Celine Dion has cancelled the remainder of her UK and Europe tour dates, including two in Scotland, after being diagnosed with an incurable medical condition.
The Canadian singer, 54, said in a statement on Friday that despite working hard, she is “unable to successfully prepare for and perform the remainder of the tour”.
It comes after she postponed the dates in December last year, telling fans about her Stiff Person Syndrome diagnosis.
The rare neurological condition causes severe and persistent muscle spasms, and create mobility and vocal cord issues.
Her Courage World Tour shows at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow, The O2 in London, AO Arena Manchester and Utilita Arena Birmingham have been cancelled alongside those across Europe.
“I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again. I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%,” Dion said.
“It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again.
“I want you all to know, I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!”
