Celine Dion has confirmed that she has cancelled the remaining dates of her US and Canada tour for health reasons.
The 53-year-old is currently midway through her Courage World Tour, which began in late 2019, and completed 52 dates before the pandemic forced it to go on hold in March 2020.
The tour was due to resume in March with a further 19 dates in North America, but they have now been cancelled as Dion continues treatment for "severe and persistent muscle spasms".
In a statement, she said: "I was really hoping that I'd be good to go by now, but I suppose I just have to be more patient and follow the regimen that my doctors are prescribing.
"There's a lot of organising and preparation that goes into our shows, and so we have to make decisions today which will affect the plans two months down the road.
"I'll be so glad to get back to full health, as well as all of us getting past this pandemic, and I can't wait to be back on stage again.
"Meanwhile, I've been very touched by all the words of encouragement that everyone's been sending to me on social media. I feel your love and support and it means the world to me."
Dion intends to pick up the tour with its European leg, which kicks off in Birmingham in the UK on May 25.
