Celine Dion, suffering from a rare neurological disorder, will not continue her world tour

Legendary Canadian singer Celine Dion claims she suffers from Moersch-Woltman syndrome, a rare neurological disease that causes muscle spasms.

As a result, the Quebec-born singer will not continue her world tour in Europe next February.

Dion, 54, made the announcement in an emotional video posted on Instagram Thursday morning.

“I’ve struggled with my health for a long time and it’s been really hard for me to face these challenges and talk about everything I’ve been through,” she said, holding back tears.

The pop icon’s spring 2023 shows have been postponed to 2024 and her summer 2023 concerts have been cancelled.

Dion had previously canceled some North American shows, citing health issues.

Dion said Moersch-Woltman syndrome, also called stiff person syndrome, affected “every aspect of her daily life,” including causing difficulty with walking.

The disease also affects her singing.

“[It doesn’t allow] to use my vocal cords and sing the way I’m used to,” she explained.

The singer plans to return to the scene when her health permits. She reportedly sees an occupational therapist daily and has the support of a team of doctors and her children.

“I miss you all so much,” said the woman behind hits like All alone and It’s all coming back to me now.

β€œI can’t wait to talk to you in person on stage.


Celine Dion’s announcement was met with an outpouring of support from fans, including Quebec’s premier.

“We are very sad for Celine Dion. Of course we hope she recovers as soon as possible,” Francois Legault said at a Quebec City press scrum Thursday morning.

“We are so proud of her,” he added, noting that Dion is from Charlemagne, Que., a town in his riding of l’Assomption.

Fans took to social media on Thursday to express their support for the beloved singer.
