Céline Dion and her team has sent out a press release on October 19th 2021 informing her fans she will be delaying and canceling the up coming shows at The Resorts World Theater scheduled from November 5 to 20, 2021 and January 19 to February 5, 2022.
Celine has been experiencing severe and persistent muscle spasms which are preventing her from performing. 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 heart broken by this, 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.”Céline Dion
“Celine is family to us, and the most important thing now is for her to focus on feeling better,“ said John Meglen, President and Co-CEO of Concerts West/AEG Presents. “In our two-decade long relationship with Celine, we’ve certainly learned how dedicated and resilient she is, and that she is most happy when she’s on stage doing what she loves most, performing for her fans. We’re ready to announce new Las Vegas show dates whenever Celine is ready.”
“If there’s anything these trying times have taught us, it’s that nothing is more important than your wellbeing,” said Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas. “While we are eager to debut the theatre, we support Celine in what we know was an incredibly difficult decision to delay her shows. On behalf of the entire Resorts World Las Vegas family, we wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to welcoming her to her new home when she feels ready and able to perform again.”
The cancelled show was to be held at the Resorts World in Las Vegas which recently started to medically segregate and not allow unvaccinated residents or travelers to attend events.
Here is a recent statement made by Jay Marciano, COO of AEG and Chairman and CEO “We have come to the conclusion that, as a market leader, it was up to us to take a real stand on vaccination status.”
The AEG Website also states to fan that do not want to get vaccinated and have no intentions of getting vaccinated, “we won’t get to have nice things like normal concerts until everyone gets vaccinated”
