The show must *not* go on.
Céline Dion has cancelled the rest of her concert for the month of March and all of April in Las Vegas, Nevada due to an ear condition that affect her hearing
Dion will undergo a minimally invasive surgical procedure to treat the condition called Patulous Eustachian tube (PET), “which causes hearing irregularities, and makes it extremely difficult to sing.”
Th 49-year-old singer shared the news via a stated shared on her social media, explaining that she has dealt with this condition for the past 12 to 18 months, and that, although she was been treated with drops, the medicine has stopped working.
“My luck hasn’t been very good lately… I’ve been so looking forward to doing my shows again and this happens,” said Dion on Facebook. “I just can’t believe it! I apologize to everyone who planned to travel to Las Vegas to see my show. I know how disappointing this is, and I’m so sorry.”
The Patolous Eustchian tube condition is also known as “the bucket on the head” effect, because the patient hears sounds as his or her breathing, or heartbeat, or speaking voice, directly into the eardrum.
This is no the first time Céline has had to cancel shows of her Las Vegas residency. At the beginning of January, the singer explained in a statement that, due to health issues, her doctor told her that she “definitely could not sing tonight.”
While the shows from March 27 to April 18 have been canceled, Dion feels optimistic and hopes to return in her best shape to the Coliseum at the Caesars Palace on May 22nd. Meanwhile, the Canadian singer is still set to perform in Indonesia on July 7, which would be her first show after surgery.
