Celine Dion cancels Las Vegas shows

WENN

Singer Celine Dion has canceled a series of Las Vegas shows after developing sinusitis.

The Canadian star was sick with the flu last week, but she has now developed a more serious sinus infection, prompting her to cancel this week's Sin City performances at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Dion's doctors have ordered her to rest for a week, and she hopes to resume her residency on February 26.

A statement posted on the singer's website reads, "We regret to inform you that Celine performances Tuesday, Feb. 19, through Friday, Feb. 22, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace have been canceled. After recovering from the flu last week, Celine developed a secondary infection (sinusitis) which is being treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicine. Her doctor has instructed her to rest for a period of seven consecutive days in order for her to fully recover. Celine's previously scheduled dates Feb. 26 through Mar. 16 will proceed as scheduled."

Ticket holders are being offered refunds.

Pack your bags and go back to Canada. Take your nasal tone with you ..

Any GOOD doctor knows you rarely should treat sinusitis with antibiotics. Decongestants and saline nasal irrigation almost always work, at least for the 1st week.  
Look up "The Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy" if you have any doubt.  I hope she's eating yogurt twice a day to decrease the chance of getting a yeast infection.  I'm an ER doc, and Board-Certified in Internal Medicine, and routinely review medical care for Standard of Care.

My wife and I had tickets to see her a few years ago towards the end of her concert series. We were met at the venue with a sign stating that the show was cancelled. No explanation was given. While we were in the taxi on the way to the airport, the driver said that she often cancelled if the show wasn't sold out. We will be in Vegas again this May, but we have no intention of trying again.

Everybody gets sick, looks how much the poor woman gives and how hard she works. Give her a break. Get Well soon. We all get sick sometimes. Take care

Diva with a capital D.  She canceled last year at this time costing me air fare and rooms.  I thought about trying again but I see she's still up to her old habits.
