Celine Dion cancelled her concerts in Las Vegas from March 27 to April 18 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, due to an ear problem which needs her to undergo surgery.

“Céline has been dealing with a condition in her middle ear known as Patulous Eustachian tube, which causes hearing irregularities, and makes it extremely difficult to sing,” Celine’s team posted on Facebook.

Celine, according to the same post, has been experiencing the ear condition for the past 12-18 months but various ear drop medications have successfully cured it.

But in the last couple of week, the medications were no longer effective, causing the singer to undergo minimally invasive surgical procedure.

My luck hasn’t been very good lately… I’ve been so looking forward to doing my shows again and this happens… 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,” Celine said.

Céline’s performances are expected to resume at The Colosseum as scheduled on the 22nd of May. Céline, Caesars Palace, and AEG Presents expressed their apology through the Facebook post for the inconvenience the incident have caused to ticket holders, but they assured that tickets can be refunded.
