Celine Dion Cancels Shows,Needs Vocal Rest


Sure, Celine Dion **’s heart will
go on, but as of now, her voice
cannot. The pop singer has
announced the cancellation of 10
shows at The Colosseum at
Caesars Palace in Las Vegas
through March 18, due to
weakness in her right vocal
chord.
According to a press release, Dion
experienced difficulty while
performing at her Vegas last
week, and headed to Los Angeles
for an examination at the UCLA
Medical Center. A doctor advised
the singer to rest her voice for
six to eight weeks, and Dion is
obliging.
“I tried to sing at my sound-
check last week, and I had no
control of my voice
whatsoever,” says Dion, who
began her three-year residency
at Caesars last March. “We
thought that after a few days
rest I would improve but it
wasn’t getting any better…I
guess it was worse than I
thought.”
Dion will return to The Colosseum
for a planned run from June 9 to
Aug. 19. Tickets for the cancelled
performances will be refunded.
