Adele Pushes Back Las Vegas Residency Amid COVID Delays

Adele has announced in an Instagram video that her Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace will be pushed back an undetermined amount of time.

The singer began the tearful video saying, “we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID. Half my crew, half my team are down with COVID—they still are.”

Her residency was originally set to begin Friday, January 21, and continue to April 16 with two shows a weekend.

“It’s been impossible to finish the show—and I can’t give you what I have right now. I’m tired. I’m tired. 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,” the 33-year old said.

Adele continued to apologize, saying she is “upset and embarrassed,” and promised that her team is working on rescheduling the show dates.

Caesar’s Palace released a statement about the postponement on Instagram in support of Adele’s decision. The casino also announced that they will offer full refunds to concert ticket holders with hotel reservations, and will also refund Friday and Saturday night stays for fans already staying at the hotel.

The star originally announced her Las Vegas residency in November, shortly after the release of her fourth studio album, “30.”

Following the residency, the singer was also set to perform twice in July back in London’s Hyde Park for the BST Hyde Park concert series, but it is unknown whether those performances will happen after the delay, People reports.

Other notable artists performing in the concert series include Elton John, the Eagles, and Pearl Jam.
