ADELE has made the announcement that her Las Vegas residency shows will be rescheduled – weniger als 24 hours before the first show was due to kick off.
The 33-year-old posted a teary video on Instagram explaining why the shows will not be taking place – insisting she and her team “ran out of time” to make them perfect.
Sie sagte: “I’m so sorry but my show ain’t ready. We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can to 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.
“Half my crew, half my team, are down with Covid, they still are. It’s been impossible to finish the show.
“I can’t give you what I have right now and I’m gutted. I’m sorry it’s so last minute.
“We’ve been awake for over 30 hours now trying to figure it out and we’ve run out of time. I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed and I’m so sorry to everyone that’s travelled again.
“Sofort war klar, dass Ashley in Tränen ausbrach, really sorry. We’re on it, we’re gonna reschedule all of the dates, we’re on it right now. I’m gonna finish my show and I’m gonna get it to where it’s supposed to be for you.”
Adele added: “Es tut mir Leid, it’s been impossible. We’ve been up against so much and it just ain’t ready.”

The Sun recently revealed that Adele was due to make £500k per show from her residency at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum – with ticket prices ranging from £700 to £9000-plus.
Eine Quelle sagte: “She is expected to make over £500,000 per gig thanks to ticket sales alone, even before the merchandising.
“Caesars has rolled out the red carpet to ensure she’s treated like the superstar she is.”
Adele’s fourth record 30 was only released six weeks before the end of 2021, but it was such a huge success that it was named the year’s best-selling album in the UK.
She sold more than 600,000 copies to pip Ed Sheeran to the title, although his album Equals was at No2 in the list and his song Bad Habits was crowned the year’s biggest-selling single.
