LAS VEGAS >> Singer Celine Dion is canceling a week of shows in Las Vegas to kick a sinus infection.

The pop star’s promoter AEG Live announced on Sunday that she would not perform shows that had been planned at Caesars Palace from Tuesday through Friday.

AEG said Dion recovered from the flu last week, but then developed sinusitis. Her doctor prescribed antibiotics and advised her to rest for a full week.

The singer of romantic odes including “My Heart Will Go On” and “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now” has previously canceled shows at Caesars Palace because of viruses and vocal inflammation.

The Sin City darling is expected to resume performing at the casino on the Las Vegas Strip on Feb. 26. Tickets for the canceled shows will be refunded.
