Celine Dion Comes Down With A Cold (Not Coronavirus) & Postpones Two Concerts

Celine Dion has had to cancel a few of her upcoming concerts.

The 51-year-old singer, who has made the streets of New York City her runway lately, made the announcement on her Facebook that she has been coming down with a few symptoms, and out of concern, was tested for COVID-19 novel coronavirus.

Those tests are negative, but Celine is still postponing a few of her concerts as she recovers.

“On Monday night, a day after completing a six-show run in the New York area, Celine began feeling the symptoms of a common cold. The symptoms persisted into Tuesday, and her doctors instructed her to rest for the next 5-7 days,” a statement posted to Celine‘s Facebook explained. “After testing her, the doctors concluded that her virus was not related to COVID-19.”

“I’m so sorry for disappointing my fans in Washington D.C. and Pittsburgh,” she shared said in the statement. “I hope everyone understands.”

The two upcoming performances that were postponed are at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. on March 11, and at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on March 13.

The shows have been rescheduled, November 16 and November 18, respectively.
