With her eyes in tears, Adele made the announcement and said she resorted to canceling the events because half of her team was infected with COVID.
The sad announcement was made not long before the first concert was scheduled to begin on Friday 21 January. The news shocked her fans!
"Hey, all! Listen, I'm so sorry, but my show ain't ready. We tried absolutely everything we can to put it together in time, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID. Half my team, half my crew are down with COVID and it’s been impossible to finish the show. I can’t give you what I have right now and I’m gutted. I’m so sorry it’s last minute, we’ve been awake for over 30 hours now trying to figure it out and we’ve run out of time," said Adele with tears in her eyes.
Adele Apologized Over And Over Again To Her Fans
"I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed and I’m so sorry to everyone that’s traveled again. I’m really really sorry. We’re on it, we’re gonna reschedule all of the dates. We’re on it right now and I’m gonna finish my show, we’re gonna get it to where it’s supposed to be now for you. I’m so sorry, it’s been impossible, we’ve been up against so much and it just ain’t ready. I’m really sorry," Adele said.
The "Weekends with Adele" concerts are to be rescheduled. The problem is that many of her fans were already in Vegas waiting to see their icon begin her show. They were basically announced less than a day before the first show was due to open.
Adele's Las Vegas Shows
Shortly after releasing her latest album "30", British singer Adele was scheduled to perform in Las Vegas every weekend from 21 January until April 16.
She was supposed to have two shows each weekend at the famous Caesar's Palace hotel in Vegas. Famous artists such as Celine Dion, Cher, Elton John, and Rod Stewart have performed at Caesar's.
Adele has also received a luxury suite from the legendary hotel, which normally costs £30,000 a night. This suite comes complete with a valet, chauffeur, assistant, and security.
According to Daily Mail, for each show she would have received more than £500,000, that is £1,000,000 every weekend.Tickets to Adele concerts started at £700 and went up to £9,000.
The Las Vegas shows were due to be Adele's first concerts since 2017 - a tragic moment when the world-renowned artist was forced to end her tour early due to damage to her vocal cords.
