Adele’s Las Vegas shows a delay: ‘The worst moment of my career’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz and television

In January this year, Adele cried as she announced on Instagram that she was postponing her upcoming Las Vegas residency. Adele has told how she hadn’t slept for 30 hours as she and her team tried unsuccessfully to ‘make it work’ as she took to social media to share the sad news with her 50million followers.

She broke down, telling her fans, “Listen, I’m so sorry, but my show [isn’t] ready, we tried absolutely everything we could to get it up and running on time and good enough for you.

“But we were completely destroyed by Covid… and it was impossible to finish the show…

“I’m disgusted and I’m sorry this is at the last minute…I’m so upset and really embarrassed.”

The announcement of her postponement of ‘Weekends With Adele’ came just 24 hours before fans were expected to flock to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Hotel to watch her perform.

But the 34-year-old came under fire when she revealed the following month that she would be performing at the Brits.

She posted a Tweet that read, “Hiya so really happy to say I’m going to play Brits next week!!

“And ddd, I’ll also drop by Graham to chat on the couch while I’m in town!” I can not wait to be there…”

Piers Morgan tweeted in response, “It’s a miracle!! (Bet the fans who paid all that money to go to Vegas are especially thrilled.)”

Tickets for his upcoming shows – which begin in November and run through March next year – vary in price, with some on the website, Vivid Seats, costing upwards of $2,000. [£1,654].

However, some even sell tickets for $40,000 [£33,066].

Adele’s most recent album, 30, was the best-selling album of the last year.
