British singer Adele posted a video on her social media pages sharing the latest update regarding her Las Vegas residency. The teary-eyed singer profusely apologized to her fans as she broke the news of her show being postponed. She claimed that several delays and Covid-19 created obstacles that they are yet to overcome before being able to go on stage. Despite being upset about the delay, the star promised fans that the show would take place at a later date.

In November 2021 Adele Las Vegas residency titled “Weekends with Adele” had been announced. The concert residency was scheduled to kick off on Friday, Jan. 21. The star would be performing at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace from January to April 16. Tickets ranging from $85 to $685 had been available for the line of shows.

With fans already arriving in Las Vegas, Adele announced the postponement of her residency on Thursday, Jan 20. In the announcement video, the singer stated that she was “gutted” to announce the delay of the shows. She claimed that there had been several production delays due to delivery issues and Covid-19. She also said that half of her crew had contracted the virus, further slowing down the production process.

The singer informed the fans that she and her team had been up for 30 hours trying to figure out ways to make the production possible. However, it appeared to be impossible to put on a show in the current situation. She promised fans that her team would soon announce the rescheduled dates.

BBC noted that the Las Vegas residency would be the first of Adele’s live concerts in five years. The singer was scheduled to start the promotional concerts for her hit album 30. It is not known how the delays would affect her shows scheduled at London's Hyde Park later this year.

USA Today shared the disappointment of the fans who turned up for the show which was canceled at such short notice. Adele fan Andrea Perez shared that she had flown from Mexico City for the show. She lamented that she not only will miss Adele’s show but that of Celine Dion as well as the Canadian singer’s show had too been canceled.

Caesar’s Palace released a statement supporting Adele’s decision to postpone the residency. They also announced that guests with booking for Jan 20 and 21 could get a full refund for cancellations.
