LAS VEGAS (AP) — Singer Celine Dion has canceled several upcoming concerts in Las Vegas because of a virus.
Caesars Palace officials say her doctor advised her to rest for a week to recover from the virus, which caused an inflammation of her vocal cords. Shows scheduled for Friday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday were canceled at the resort's Colosseum.
Her next scheduled concert there is March 3.
Dion, in a statement, said she doesn't "like to let people down," and she feels terrible about not being able to perform at the shows. Refunds will be given to people who bought tickets.
Caesars spent $95 million to build the Colosseum for Dion in 2003, complete with a humidifier to protect her voice.
Dion was in Jamaica recently where she performed at the Jazz & Blues festival to a record crowd and where the likes of Freddie Mcgregor did not perform after claimed that he was belittled.
