Celine Dion cancels Asian tour; Mariah Carey to perform again in Manila

Canadian recording artist Celine Dion has taken an indefinite leave from work to focus on tending to her husband Rene as he recovers from an illness, among other family concerns.
 
As an offshoot of this hiatus, Celine cancelled her Asian tour (which includes a Philippine leg) initially scheduled for later this year, as well as her shows at the Caesars Palace.
 
In a statement posted on her Facebook page last night, Aug. 13, Celine apologized to her fans for “inconveniencing them” even as she thanked them for their support.
 
"I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband's healing, and to do so, it's important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children.
 
“I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support,” she says.
 
Her husband Rene underwent surgery last December to have a cancerous tumor removed.
 
The statement adds that the diva herself has yet to recover from “an illness that has caused inflammation in her throat muscles.”
 

Meanwhile, concert buffs have another show to look forward to: Mariah Carey’s “I Am Mariah World Tour” that includes a Manila stop on October 28.
 
Tickets are now on sale for the concert which happens at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. Other stops of her Asian tour are Japan, China, and Singapore.
 
Mariah first held a concert in Manila back in 2003 for her “Charmbracelet Tour.”
