Adele took to Instagram to reveal to fans the reason for the delay. In an emotional video posted to Instagram, Adele tells fans that her Las Vegas spectacle wouldn’t go on as originally planned. “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,” the singer explained. She then cited several reasons, like delivery delays and COVID-19. “Half my team, half my crew” contracted the virus, she revealed, and were still out at the time she posted. As a result, the singer said it was “impossible to finish the show.”
In a final push to try everything possible to make sure the show could go on, Adele admitted that she and the rest of the crew had been awake for 30 hours trying to figure out solutions. “I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed,” Adele said to her fans, while she was practically in tears. The singer promised rescheduled dates as soon as possible and to bring the show up to the level that she wanted to give her fans.
Naturally, some fans posted on social media their disappointment with the last-minute cancellation, per the Daily Mail. While this was certainly difficult news to deliver, Adele has always been one to be open with her fans, like in her revealing interview with Oprah in 2021 where she discussed her divorce. So, even if fans are disappointed, they’re still getting the frankness they’ve come to expect and love from Adele.
