Celine Dion ended her Friday show early and canceled weekend performances after suffering an upper respiratory infection, her publicist said Monday.

Kim Jakwerth said Dion will return to the stage Wednesday to perform her show, “A New Day,” at Caesars Palace hotel-casino.

The show, slated to run until 2006, is dark on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Dion, 35, is best known for her hit song “My Heart Will Go On” from the movie “Titanic.”
