Lady Luck Does Not Smile On Celine Dion, Willie Nelson In Vegas

Both artists forced to postpone shows due to injury.

Visitors to Sin City might complain of injury to their wallet or their

conscience, but this past Saturday, two performers felt a more severe pain.

Celine Dion and Willie Nelson got some bad news in Las Vegas over the weekend when they learned they would have to cancel upcoming shows due to neck pain and carpal tunnel syndrome, respectively, according to The Associated Press.

Dion's heart will go on, but her regular gig at Las Vegas' Caesars Palace

will be postponed for a few days, according to the AP. A doctor

reportedly told Dion, who has been hindered by a sprained neck for the last week, that she needed to rest.

The French-Canadian singer canceled three performances of her nightly show, "A New Day ...," on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but will take the stage again on Saturday

to continue the second year of her three-year stint at the hotel-casino.

The 71-year-old Nelson reportedly cut short his Saturday performance in Las Vegas

due to severe pain from carpal tunnel syndrome. According to the AP,

the country singer has canceled concerts for the next two months — including

an appearance at the three-day Bonnaroo Music Festival in June (see [article id="1485057"]"Dave Matthews, Maroon 5, 58 Other Acts To Play Bonnaroo"[/article]) — to undergo

surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome.
