In the announcement, the 46 year-old songstress confirmed that her upcoming Las Vegas show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace has been postponed, as has her extensive tour of Asia which was originally scheduled to begin in the fall of this year.

Angélil underwent surgery this past December (2013) to remove a cancerous tumor from his throat, and Dion has also been battling an illness that has caused inflammation on her throat muscles, meaning that she hasn't performed any of her Las Vegas shows since July 29th.

"Rene's surgery last December (has) been a very difficult and stressful time for the couple as they deal with the day-to-day challenges of fighting this disease while trying to juggle a very active show business schedule, and raise their three young children," a press release read on Dion's website Wednesday.

I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support," the 'My Heart Will Go On' singer added.
