WASHINGTON, DC. – March 10, 2020 - We regret to inform you that due to a cold, Celine Dion will be postponing two performances of her COURAGE WORLD TOUR scheduled this week in Washington, D.C and Pittsburgh, PA. The show dates are being rescheduled as follows:

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. After testing her, the doctors concluded that her virus was not related to COVID-19.
Performances of her COURAGE WORLD TOUR are expected to resume on Tuesday, March 24 in Denver, CO at the Pepsi Center as initially scheduled.
