Singer Celine Dion has had to cancel several shows of her Las Vegas residency  in order to “undergo a minimally invasive surgical procedure,” according to reports.

The news was shared on the 49-year-old’s Facebook page on Wednesday, March, 21 and apologized for the three weeks of shows that were canceled at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. “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 reads.

“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,” it continues.

Celine then shared her own note, writing, “My luck hasn’t been very good lately… I’ve been so looking forward to doing my shows again and this happens…. I just can’t believe it! I apologize to everyone who planned to travel to Las Vegas to see my show. I know how disappointing this is, and I’m so sorry.” – Céline.”

The post also explained that Dion is expected to resume performing on Tuesday, May 22 and offered information on ticket refunds.

 Back in January the singer had to also cancel shows because of health issues. “I don’t know what to say, other than I’m truly sorry for having to cancel tonight’s show and the two shows from last week,” she wrote. “Cancelling a show is the hardest thing I have to do, especially when I know that so many people have travelled far to see me in Las Vegas. This decision is not made lightly.” She continued, “When I’m not well, I always try to push through and I do everything I can to do my show. I really struggled to finish last night’s show and it took everything out of me. My doctor advised that I absolutely cannot perform tonight. I know that I am disappointing you, the people who support me the most and it hurts me beyond words. I hope that you can forgive me.”
