At the time, she said she expected to be ready to return to the stage by March 27. Céline Dion has cancelled a string of shows between March 27 and April 18 due to a hearing condition that she says will require a “minimally invasive surgical procedure.”
A new statement on the singer’s Facebook page says she has been dealing with an ear condition, described as Patulous Eustachian tube, which “causes hearing irregularities, and makes it extremely difficult to sing.”
Dion has experienced the condition over the past 12 to 18 months and treated it with medication, which has ceased to be effective, necessitating surgery to correct the problem, according to the statement. “My luck hasn’t been very good lately. I just can’t believe it,” the singer said in her Facebook message. I’ve been so looking forward to doing my shows again and this happens.
