Celine Dion is set for Las Vegas return, a year after she put her career on hold “indefinitely” for health and family reasons.

The Canadian singer cancelled all performances from August last year after her husband, Rene Angelil, was diagnosed with throat cancer for the second time.

“It was Rene’s wish that I come back,” Celine Dion wrote in a statement.

“While my family will always be my priority, my fans are just as important to me.”

She has been married to Rene Angelil, who is also her manager, since 1994. They have three children together.

“I look forward to performing again for all of you… and more importantly having Rene there with me,” Celine Dion’s statement continued.

“Thank you for giving me this time I needed to spend with my family.”

In an interview with Good Morning America, Celine Dion revealed she had been feeding Rene Angelil, 73, through a tube since his surgery to have a cancerous tumor removed in December 2013.

“Rene could not talk and he could not swallow; the surgery was major,” she said.

“I feed him three times a day, I do it myself.”

Celine Dion previously took a two-year hiatus from 2000 to 2002 to help care for her husband, when he was initially diagnosed with throat cancer.

The singer has become a regular fixture in Las Vegas, having performed a near five-year residency there from 2003 to 2007.

Her current residency began in 2011. Although it was originally billed as a three-year event, it was extended through to 2019 last year.

It has been confirmed Celine Dion will resume her residency with 40 performances, to take place between August 2015 and January 2016.

Celine Dion has cancelled all her Las Vegas shows until June on doctor’s order.

Following an examination last week, Celine Dion’s doctor diagnosed a weakness in her right vocal cord and prescribed up to eight weeks of rest.

“Obviously this is the worst thing for a singer… not being able to do your shows,” the singer wrote on her website.

“I feel worse knowing that I’m disappointing my fans. I’m so sorry… I hope they forgive me.”

Celine Dion, 43, is midway through a three-year residency at Caesars Palace, where tickets to her show sell for as much as $250.

The singer began experiencing discomfort with her vocal cords last week but had initially anticipated returning to work at the weekend.

However, a doctor in Los Angeles said Celine Dion was suffering from inflammation of the vocal cords caused by a virus and advised her to cancel all shows until 9 June.

Tickets for the cancelled performances will be refunded.

“I tried to sing at my soundcheck last week and I had no control of my voice whatsoever,” said Celine Dion in a statement.

“We thought that after a few days’ rest I would improve but it wasn’t getting any better. I guess it was worse than I thought.

“I’m fortunate that I was able to see Professor Berke. He assured me that with the amount of rest he prescribed, I would be back to 100%.”

Celine Dion’s previous run at Caesars Palace, which began in 2003 and was eventually extended to five years, earned more than $400 million.
