Adele has announced the cancellation of her Las Vegas residency, only one day before it was scheduled to begin, citing Covid as the reason.
“tried absolutely everything 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,” Adele said in a sad video posted to Instagram.
“I’m so sorry but my show ain’t ready,” she said. “Half my crew, half my team is down with Covid. They still are, and it’s been impossible to finish the show. And I can’t give you what I have right now, and I’m gutted.”
Adele’s series of gigs at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum were supposed to begin on Friday and run through April 16.
Tickets went on sale in December, and they sold out in record time.
“And I’m sorry it’s so last minute. We’ve been awake for over 30 hours now trying to figure it out, and we’ve run out of time,” she said. “And I’m so upset, and I’m really embarrassed and I’m so sorry to everyone who traveled, again.”
Dates will be rescheduled, according to the “Hello” singer.
“It’s been impossible. We’ve been up against so much, and it just ain’t ready,” she said. “I’m really sorry.”
