Adele cancelled her concerts that were originally set for January 2022 at Caesars Palace just 24 hours before the shows
As you might recall, the singer shocked fans worldwide back in January when she revealed — just 24 hours before the planned opening night — that her Weekends With Adele residency would no longer be going ahead.
Adele has candidly reflected on her last-minute decision to postpone her Las Vegas residency earlier this year, revealing for the first time exactly what drove her to make the bold move.
Sharing an emotional video message to her Instagram page, Adele let fans know that the show — which had been scheduled to run from January to April — simply wasn’t “ready.”
But by the time her last-minute revelation was made public, tons of ticket holders had understandably already arrived in Vegas ahead of the show's debut,
-having therefore spent thousands of dollars on travel and accommodations.
“I’m so sorry but my show ain’t ready,” she said. “We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID.”
“I’m gutted, and I’m sorry it’s so last minute,” she continued, before going on to directly apologize to fans who had arrived in Vegas.
“I’m so sorry to everyone who traveled,” she said through tears. “I’m really, really sorry. I’m really sorry.”
Getting incredibly candid about the reality of the postponement, Adele called it “the worst moment” of her entire career, describing the whole thing as “devastating.”
“It was the worst moment in my career, by far,” she said. “I was so excited about those shows. It was devastating.”
