Christina Aguilera took to Twitter on Thursday (Oct. 11) to announce the cancellation of her Orillia, Ontario, date on her Liberation tour after losing her voice. “It aches me to share that I am under the weather and have lost my voice today,” she tweeted. “Per doctor’s order, I need to rest in order to get well asap.”
Following the announcement, Aguilera posted two additional messages to her Twitter page to express her sadness at the cancellation and thank her fans for their unwavering support. The singer promised that a new date in the city will be announced in order to make up for the cancellation.
The Ontario date cancellation comes before 16 more shows in the United States before the tour’s finish.

MY FIGHTERS, MY FRIENDS – it aches me to share that I am under the weather and have lost my voice today. Per doctor’s order, I need to rest tonight in order to get well asap – and will be unable to sing my heart out and perform for you at tonight’s show in Orillia, Ontario.
I have kept you waiting so long and I look forward to each night on this tour. I promise to make tonight up to you with a new date very soon – until then I am sending love and gratitude for your support and I CANNOT WAIT to get back on the stage after this short rest.
It has been a decade since she was on tour, but Christina Aguilera is back on the road promoting her newest album, Liberation. And, of course, she’s hit the ground running. The Liberation tour kicked off last week with stops in Hollywood and Atlantic City, and this week, Aguilera performed at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Here, Aguilera offers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at her New York City shows, including backstage moments with her children, Max, 10, and Summer, 3.
Christina Aguilera‘s new album ends with a wedding song, but her Liberation Tour began with an epic proposal. Last night, at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Fla., she helped facilitate a once-in-a-lifetime moment after singing “Unless It’s With You” in the 3,500 seat concert venue.
“What’s happening here tonight?” Aguilera asked before inviting “two special people”— Ben Lear and Mike Kontomanolis—onto the onstage. “I want to share this with you guys,” the singer said, addressing the audience. “I have a really special surprise that’s happening tonight.”
With tears in his eyes, Lear turned to Kontomanolis and said, “I could not have imagined you could have a better moment than [with] this woman, who has inspired you throughout your whole life and has brought you so many things.” After he thanked Aguilera for “being an inspiration to not only everybody here, but to him,” Lear turned back to Kontomanolis, got down on one knee and pulled an engagement ring out of his pocket. “You’re kind, you’re beautiful, you’re loving,” he said. “Six years ago, you proposed to me and you gave me the opportunity to say yes. Tonight, in front of Christina, I’m going to ask you the same question.”
After Kontomanolis accepted, Aguilera squealed, “Oh, my God! Congratulations!”
