The six Montreal performances of the tour would be the explanation behind this lack of interest in Ottawa concerts. Many Ontario fans would have opted to drive two and a half hours to attend the first concerts of the tour rather than wait for the diva to come to them. Ironically, those who planned to move to Montreal in September to take advantage of the first concerts will now have to wait until performances on November 18, 19, 21 and 22 and February 18 and 19. Struck by a voracious virus, Celine Dion was forced to postpone her six concerts in Montreal.
Moreover, it seems that the singer is not fully recovered, three weeks after the beginning of his convalescence. After a breathtaking show opening last night, many fans saw Celine's tiredness pushing her to take a long break and even miss some notes, again according to the Montreal Newspaper. Finally, it was the diva herself who confided in the crowd: " You have probably noticed: I am currently struggling. In my career, I have never thought of "Will I continue or not?" I felt strong this afternoon. Now, I'm not so sure … "
To the relief of all, the singer drew her energy from that of the crowd and brilliantly finished the show. Now, hopefully she will have done better in time for tonight's performance!
