Céline Dion announced this Thursday that she has a rare neurological disorder that forces her to suspend her concert tour.

In an Instagram video, Céline Dion gave an update on her health status.

“Recently, I was diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called Stiff-Person Syndrome (Moersch and Woltman Syndrome) which affects about one in a million people. We still don’t know everything about this rare disease, but we now know that it is the cause of the muscle spasms I suffer from,” said Dion.

“Unfortunately, these spasms affect my everyday life on many levels. I sometimes have a lot of difficulty walking and I can’t always use my vocal cords to sing as I would like,” she confided.

Here is the video posted by the singer:

She continued: “I’ve had health problems for a long time and it’s not easy for me to cope with them. It saddens me greatly to have to tell you that I will not be ready to resume my European tour in February.”

For this reason, she is postponing her spring 2023 shows to 2024. The singer is also cancelling the eight shows that were scheduled for the summer of 2023 as part of her Courage world tour.

“Singing is what I’ve done all my life and for me not to be able to do it anymore is unimaginable. I miss seeing you, being on stage performing for you,” she said.
