Adele Postpones Las Vegas Residency Due to Pandemic Impact

On Thursday, Adele announced that her 24-date Las Vegas residency has been postponed just hours before it was to start, citing delivery delays and coronavirus illness in her crew. The chart-topping British star said she was “gutted” by the decision, but she did assure fans that she promises to reschedule the shows.

            In a video she posted on social media, a tearful Adele explained the situation to her fans saying, “I’m sorry but my show ain’t ready.” Adele was supposed to perform 24 shows at Caesars Palace Hotel starting Friday following the release of her fourth album, “30.” Announced in late November, “Weekends With Adele” was scheduled to have the singer performing two shows each weekend through Saturday, April 16, 2022, for a total of 12 weeks. These shows, along with her two shows in London’s Hyde Park next summer and the “One Night Only” CBS special that was filmed at the Griffith Observatory last year, are the only shows that have been announced in support of her recent album.

            “We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can pull it together in time and for it to be good enough for you, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID,” Adele said, she even mentioned that “half my team are down with” the virus. Though it seemed as if doing a residency was supposed to be a way to avoid the hazards and vast complications of touring during the ongoing pandemic, this announcement demonstrates the challenges of staging a non-traveling show under the current circumstances.
