Céline Dion is canceling three weeks of performances.
The 49-year-old singer has canceled performances at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas from March 27 to April 18 as she undergoes surgery for an ear condition, her team announced on Facebook on Wednesday.
"Céline has been dealing with a condition in her middle ear known as Patulous Eustachian tube, which causes hearing irregularities, and makes it extremely difficult to sing," the post explains. "She has been experiencing this condition for the past 12-18 months but it has been successfully treated with various ear drop medications. During the past couple of weeks these medications have no longer been working to treat the condition, so she will undergo a minimally invasive surgical procedure to correct the problem."

Dion will resume performances on May 22. See the full post, including information about ticket refunds, below:
"I had a pretty rough time during the last couple of weeks...a lot of people have been hit with cold and flu bugs... but I'm doing much better now," Dion wrote. "Wasn't able to do all my shows, but was thrilled that Adele came to one of them.... I love her so much!!"
