Celine Dion has been forced to cancel the remaining dates on her world tour due to 'human statue' health condition.
The iconic musician, who recently starred in the rom-com Love Again with Sam Heughan, shared her heartbreak as she cancelled her remaining tour dates including a show in Glasgow. The 55-year-old global superstar revealed she was diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome last year, which she says affects “every aspect of my daily life”.
Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) leaves sufferers as 'human statues' as it locks the body into rigid positions. There is no cure for the condition that can leave people unable to walk or talk.
She said: "I'm so sorry to disappoint all of you once again... and even though it breaks my heart, it's best that we cancel everything until I'm really ready to be back on stage... I'm not giving up… and I can't wait to see you again!"
It comes after Celine had successfully completed over 50 dates of the Courage World Tour across North America before Covid-19 struck.
A spokesperson for the Loved Me Back To Life hitmaker explained that while she continues to work on her recovery, she will be postponing her shows which were set to run from August 26, 2023 through til October, before continuing her performances in March 2024.
Announcing her diagnosis to fans last year, she shared an emotional video: "Hello everyone, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reach out to you. I miss you all so much and can’t wait to be on stage talking to you in person.
"As you know I’ve always been an open book and I wasn’t ready to say anything before but I'm ready now
"I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time and it's been really difficult for me to face my challenges and to talk about everything that
