Adele has postponed her whole Las Vegas residency which was going to happen just 24 hours from now. She was teary -eyed on the Instagram update that she posted, “ I am so sorry, but my show is not ready.” This was the message that Adele shared with her followers and fans.

“Half my team has Covid and it has been impossible to finish the show,” she said while also informing that the delay in delivery of the show has also created havoc for her. 

Adele was due to play the very first of her 24 concerts at the Caesars Palace’s Colosseum this Friday which was announced late in November. The Weekends with Adele series was scheduled to have the singer perform two shows every weekend until April

The tickets ranged from $85 (£60) to $685 (£500) for the shows and these shows forecasted Adele to earn more than £500,00 per performance.

These performances were going to be Adele’s first live concerts in five years. These were the only shows that she announced to promote her latest blockbuster album “30” along with two performances in Hyde Park this summer. Adele said that she had been awake for more than 30 hours to complete the production of her show but could not complete it in time because of the health issues of her crew and ran out of time in the end. 

“ It has been impossible to finish the show,” she added. “ I can not give you what I have right now and I am gutted.”

Due to the last moment cancellation of the show, Adele had to apologize to a lot of her fans who traveled from very far away places just to attend the concert. She added on Instagram,” We are going to reschedule all the dates, we are on it right now. And I am going to finish my show. I want to get it to where it is supposed to be but we have been up against so much and it is not ready.”

The famous star Adele was previously forced to cancel the final two dates of her previous tour at Wembley Stadium in 2017 because her vocal cords got damaged. While Adele was really disturbed by the production problems and illness within the crew, other shows in Vegas have been going on as usual. 

Just three weeks back, Katy Perry rolled out her own residency with numerous positive reviews. The play was elaborate and well planned. The production was named “ The Perry Playland.” It included oversized talking furniture and a giant rocking horse with a dancing alarm clock. 

Billboard magazine described the show as “ part fantasy, part hallucination and thoroughly high-camp.”
