Celine Dion has postponed her European tour for the second time amid her ongoing health battle.
The 54-year-old star was due to hit the road in Europe throughout summer 2022 but has been forced to push the tour back until 2023 because of her muscle spasms.
In an Instagram video, she said: "Hi everyone. Well, here we are again. I’m so sorry that we have to change our tour plans for Europe one more time. First, we had to move the shows because of the pandemic, and now it is my health issues that is causing us to postpone some shows and unfortunately, we have to cancel some too."
The 'My Heart Will Go On' songstress - who cancelled the North American leg of her 'Courage' tour back in January after suffering muscle spasms - went on to explain to her millions of followers that while she is "doing a little better", progress has been "slow" but "can't wait" to perform for her fans again.
She said: "The good news is that I’m doing a little bit better but it’s going very slow. It’s very frustrating for me. I’m getting treatment from my doctors, taking medication, but I’m still experiencing some spasms and it’s taking a lot longer for me to recover than I had hoped. I need to be in top shape when I’m on stage, I honestly can’t wait but I’m just not there yet."
The music legend - who has sold more than 200 million records during her career - went on to apologise profusely to her fans and promised that she is doing her "very best" to get back on top form.
She added: "I’m wanted to let you know that I’m sorry for this news… by now I am convinced that you should be so fed up with all of this, and waiting for so long. But all I can say is that I’m doing my very best to get back to the level that I need to be so that I can give 100 percent at my shows because that is what you deserve."
A message posted onto Celine's website reassured fans that their tickets will "remain valid" for the rescheduled dates and for further information, ticketholders should contact their original point of purchase.
