Cyprus fans of world-renowned French-Canadian pop singer Celine Dion will have to wait a little bit longer to see their idol as the concert planned for 2 August at the GSP stadium in Nicosia has been postponed.

This follows the government’s decision to prohibit events with mass attendance until autumn.

MoonLight Productions, organisers of the event, have urged people to save their tickets as the concert is to be rescheduled for a later date and tickets already bought will be valid.

A representative of SoldOut Tickets, the Ticketing Management Service for the event, told the Financial Mirror the exact date of the rescheduled concert is still up in the air.

The representative said that the production team will be announcing the new date later on, following a reschedule of the whole tour.

“As expected, it is not only the Cyprus concert that has been postponed but also the majority of concerts scheduled to take place within the framework of Dion’s world tour titled ‘Courage.”

The majority of concerts in Europe have been called off.

The singer, known for her vocal prowess and her passionate showmanship, made the announcement herself through the tour’s official website.

“With sincere regret, Celine Dion has postponed the first months of the European leg of her COURAGE WORLD TOUR, which was scheduled to kick-off in Prague on May 21, 2020.

And 28 show dates in 19 cities through July 25, 2020, are being postponed, with the intention to announce as many rescheduled dates as possible, when it is safe and approved to proceed with events in each of the cities,” said a statement on the singer’s webpage.

The COURAGE WORLD TOUR launched in North America in September 2019 in Québec City completed 52 sold-out shows before going on a forced break due to COVID-19 in March 2020.

SoldOut tickets said that more than 75% of tickets available were sold, but a large number are still available to fans wanting to grab the opportunity to see Celine Dion live in Cyprus.
