Adele broke down in tears on social media after she was forced to cancel her Las Vegas residency. The singer explained that she was “gutted” and “embarrassed” by the cancellation. Her cancellation is a result of complications with the delivery of her concert gear, which had already caused production delays. She is now trying to figure out how to make her Las Vegas concerts work again.
The postponement of her Vegas residency has enraged fans who paid up to $30k for tickets. Although the Las Vegas show had been rescheduled, Adele’s team was still unable to get the necessary equipment. The delay in production cost the singer and her crew thirty hours. The concert was supposed to start on January 21, but Adele was unable to get the gear ready in time. The Covid virus, a disease caused by mold, has hit the LasVegas crew.
In the meantime, Adele’s Las Vegas residency is also canceled, due to COVID-19 outbreaks. She apologized for the inconvenience, but fans paid up to $30,000 for resold tickets. Several other cities were affected by Adele’s postponement, including New York, London, and Paris. But she didn’t cancel her tour, and fans have responded with grief.
The singer’s tour will now be delayed until May. The Can I Get It singer had been scheduled to perform at the Colosseum theatre in Los Angeles. Earlier, in November, the star had announced a series of “Weekends With Adele” concerts at the Flamingo and the former Rao’s restaurant. Although the dates were cut, fans believed that it would be the last of her world tour.
Following her diagnosis, Adele rescheduled the rest of her North American tour. After being diagnosed with COVID, the singer vowed to reschedule her shows and apologize to fans for inconvenience. The singer also promised to reschedule the affected shows. She would also announce a new residency in the Flamingo’s former Rao’s Restaurant.
The cancellation of the shows was devastating for both the artist and the public. The price of tickets for the concert had ranged from PS730 to PS865. The cancellation of the tour has triggered a backlash from fans who were disappointed in the news. The singer is now rescheduling her shows in a bid to avoid the financial losses. Regardless of the reason, it is understandable that she cannot continue performing.
Ticket sales for the show were expected to be $2 million per show. The concert was reportedly the most expensive residency in history. A typical Adele concert costs PS700 and goes up to PS9,000, depending on the location. This meant that the show was already very profitable for the Las Vegas venue. However, the cancellation was so devastating that it led to the cancellation of the remaining shows.
