Celine Dion is taking some time off of her Las Vegas residency to mourn the death of her husband René Angélil.

According to a press release, Dion’s concerts scheduled for this weekend, January 16 and 17, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace have been canceled following the death of Angélil earlier today, January 14. Dion will resume her Caesars residency as planned on February 23.

Angélil’s tragic death at the age of 73 came after a long battle with cancer. Last August, Dion returned to the stage after taking a year off of her residency to spend more time with her ailing husband and their three children, 14-year-old René Charles Angélil and twin 5-year-old's Eddy and Nelson.
