CLARK COUNTY, NV. (THECOUNT) — Celine Dion has announced the delay of her Las Vegas Resorts World residency citing a severe medical condition.

The first show was to be Nov. 5 at the newest resort on the Las Vegas Strip.


“Celine has been experiencing severe and persistent muscle spasms which are preventing her from performing,” a news release early Tuesday stated. “Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat her. However, the symptoms she is experiencing are prohibiting her from participating in the ongoing rehearsals for the new show.”

“I’m heartbroken by this,” Dion said. “My team and I have been working on our new show for the past eight months, and to not be able to open this November saddens me beyond words. My partners at Resorts World Las Vegas and AEG have been working around the clock to get this brand-new state-of-the-art theatre ready, and it’s absolutely beautiful. I feel so bad that I’m letting them down, and I’m especially sorry for disappointing all the fans who’ve been making their plans to come to Las Vegas. Now, I have to focus on getting better. … I want to get through this as soon as I can.”
