Celine Dion has canceled the remaining shows of the North American leg of her Courage World Tour, including April 8 at Gila River Arena in Glendale, as she recovers from a recent health issue.

Dion had completed the first 52 shows on the tour before the pandemic forced her to reschedule all her dates in March 2020 but recently has been treated for severe and persistent muscle spasms which are preventing her from performing.

Her recovery is taking longer than hoped. Her medical team continues to evaluate and treat the condition.

In a message posted on her website, Dion 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 organizing 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."
