In January of 2022, Celine Dion opened up about her "heartbreak" over her decision to cancel the remainder of her North American tour due to a serious medical condition. On her official website, Dion revealed she was suffering from "severe and persistent muscle spasms."
"My team and I have been working on our new show for the past eight months," Dion wrote, "and to not be able to open this November saddens me beyond words." Fans took to Twitter to send Dion their best wishes for a speedy recovery, and some worried that her condition had to do with COVID-19 — is this rumor true?
Celine's sister, Claudette, confirmed that the singer was suffering from injuries due to her grueling show routine: "[...] the stage had a steep incline when she was performing that would cause problems to her muscles, legs and feet." In other words, COVID-19 nor vaccines for the virus were to blame.
