Adele Reschedules Las Vegas Residency 6 Months After Chaotic Postponement
Adele made an incredibly triumphant return with her 30 album earlier this year, even landing herself a coveted Las Vegas residency, though it unfortunately all fell apart on her not long before the show was due to make its debut back in January.
At the time, rumours were floating around that the chaos was due to the English singer’s relationship with sports agent Rich Paul, in which she was reportedly facing some trouble. For her part, Adele ignored the gossip and blamed COVID as the reason why the show couldn’t go on.

“I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready. We’ve 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,” the mother of one said in a tearful apology video posted to her Instagram.
“Half my crew and team are [ill] with COVID and still are, and it’s been impossible to finish the show. I’m gutted — I’m sorry it’s so last minute, we’ve been awake for over 30 hours trying to figure it out and we’ve run out of time. I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed and so sorry to everyone that travelled to get [to the show]. I’m really, really sorry.”
