"Courage", the name of his latest album, is ultimately all that his millions of fans around the world can wish for him.
Quebec superstar Celine Dion announced on Saturday the cancellation of the North American leg of her Courage tour due to persistent health issues.
“I was really hoping to be ready to go back on stage now, but I find that I have to be more patient”, regretted the star on Twitter.
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.

The singer, whose shows had to be postponed due to the pandemic, had already canceled performances scheduled in Las Vegas between November 2021 and February 2022. She was to resume her tour on March 9 in Denver and perform in fifteen cities American and Canadian until April 22.
A message to her late husband
Those shows are now also canceled because the recovery of the singer, who suffers from "severe and persistent muscle spasms" preventing her from performing on stage, is "taking longer than she had hoped". , indicates his organization in a press release.
Celine Dion had given the first 52 shows of the tour before the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
I would be lying if I said I'm fine, I think of you at least a hundred times, cause in the echo of my voice I hear your words just like you're there… You miss me

The shows for the European leg of the Courage tour remain scheduled.
They are due to start on May 25 in Birmingham, UK.
“I will be so happy when I get healthy again, the pandemic is behind us and I go on stage again,” said the diva.
Friday already, the singer with 230 million records sold in the world (just 25 million in France), had let her discomfort filter.
“I would be lying if I said I was fine, I think of you at least a hundred times, because in the echo of my voice I hear your words as if you were there… I miss you”, she wrote, still on Twitter, to her late husband and agent, René Angélil.
