Fans of Celine Dion will not want to make a special trip to Las Vegas to see her now. A lot of fans make this a big part of their vacation, but she is now canceling her shows to take care of her husband. On Wednesday, Inquistr shared about why she has canceled her shows and is ending her stay in Las Vegas.

Her husband Rene Angelil has been battling cancer and she needs to be with him. Celine released a statement to her fans saying, "I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband’s healing, and to do so, it’s important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children." She is putting her family first and of course you can't fault her for doing that right now.

Back in June, her husband stepped down as her touring manager. That showed that something was wrong with him enough that he couldn't handle his job anymore. He had been doing it for thirty years. Rene has throat cancer and had a lump removed last year.

Her official site spoke out and said, "Celine Dion has decided to postpone all of her show business activities indefinitely, in order to focus 100% of her attention on her husband René, their family, and associated health issues." She is not going to be keeping her spot in Las Vegas and will now be focusing on her husband. They have been together since 1987 and have three children together.

At this time, it is unknown when or if Celine Dion will be touring again. She might end up deciding to stay off the road forever and only perform when it works out for them. There are no plans for her to be back in Las Vegas again.
