After canceling her previous tour dates, Dion was still scheduled to perform across Europe this summer and fall, as well as next spring.
“I’m so sorry to disappoint you all once again. I’m trying really hard to get my strength back, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re at 100%,” Dion said in a statement. “It’s not fair of you to postpone the show, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything for now until I’m ready to be back on stage again. I want you all to know, I am not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!

Dion began her “Courage World Tour” in September 2019 in Quebec City, performing 52 shows in North America before the tour was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
Late last year, Dion revealed that she had been diagnosed with a rare medical condition called Stiff Person Syndrome, which causes severe and persistent muscle spasms.
Due to the condition, Dion has been unable to perform as her medical team evaluates and treats the disease.
