LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — In a tearful message delivered on Instagram, Adele announced that she is rescheduling her appearances at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
“I can’t give you what I have right now,” she said in a Thursday social post.
She was scheduled to kick off here residency on Friday, Jan. 21. Two shows were planned each weekend through Saturday, April 16.
“I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready. 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. Half my crew — half my team — are down with COVID. They still are,” she said.
“And it’s been impossible to finish the show. I can’t give you what I have right now,” she said as emotions took over.
“And I’m gutted. I’m gutted. I’m so sorry it’s so last-minute. We’ve been awake for over 30 hours now trying to figure it out.” A note on the Instagram page says all dates will be rescheduled.
Visibly shaken as she nears the end of the announcement, she continues to apologize to her fans.
“We’ve run out of time. I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed, and I’m so sorry to everyone that traveled again. I’m really, really sorry. I’m really sorry. We’re on it, we’re going to reschedule all the dates. We’re on it right now. And I’m going to finish my show, and I’m going to get it where it’s supposed to be.”
Before she stops the video, she breaks down again: “I’m sorry … I’m really sorry. Sorry.”
Caesars Palace issued a statement Thursday evening regarding the postponement:
“We understand the disappointment surrounding the postponement of ‘Weekends with Adele.’ Adele is an incredible artist, supremely dedicated to her music and her fans. Creating a show of this magnitude is incredibly complex. We fully support Adele and are confident the show she unveils at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace will be extraordinary.”
