Furious Adele fans call her out for failing to reschedule her Las Vegas residency

Adele devastated fans earlier this year when she canceled her highly-anticipated Las Vegas residency just 24 hours before she was set to hit the stage at Caesar’s Palace.

And four months later, Adele and her team have yet to provide ticket-holders with an update on the postponed shows – despite the singer vowing to reschedule the dates for sometime this year.

With frustrations mounting, fans are using social media to call out Adele for seemingly leaving them in the dark, with many calling the months-long delay ‘bogus’ and ‘diva-like.’

Weekends with Adele was set to begin at Las Vegas’ Caesar’s Palace on January 21.

But the day before kick off, Adele announced that she’d be postponing the 12-week residency, citing the COVID-19 pandemic as a mitigating factor.

The last-minute cancellation left many fans out of pocket after spending thousands on tickets and plane fares to see her onstage.

One fan joked that the ‘era’ of Adele’s 30 album, which was released last November, ‘ended once the residency got dubbed.’

Last month, it was reported that Adele was close to finalizing a new deal to bring her Las Vegas residency to Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood.

According to TMZ, Adele and her team are in ‘serious talks’ with the folks over at Planet Hollywood to bring her shows there, with performances set to kick off within months barring any unforeseen circumstances.

The publication adds that the move will come with ‘major perks’ for the Easy On Me hitmaker, including her having ‘full creative control over the show.’

They also add that Adele will receive a ‘large cut of ticket sales’, which is a boost from her former deal as Zappos Theater seats 7,000 people as opposed to 4,100 at The Colosseum.

The singer originally postponed her Weekends With Adele on January 20th, citing the COVID-19 pandemic as a mitigating factor.

It had previously been suggested that space was being made for her to belt out her greatest hits at The Colosseum, with Keith Urban finishing his own residency on June 18th, before Los Stewart sets up shop on September 23rd.

Addressing the issue in February, a source told The Sun: ‘That is the scheduling that would make the most sense.

‘Talks are ongoing at the moment, and the hope is that Adele’s rearranged dates will be agreed very soon.

‘She has made it clear that next year is not an option, and everyone is keen to lock the dates in.’

It had previously been reported that the delays were down to the singer being displeased with the set design, particularly over a swimming pool erected in the middle of the stage.

Insiders in the Caesars Palace camp told TMZ that the resort and Live Nation will have to arrive at a workable arrangement with the singer within a month in order for the show to go forward.

Adele’s current boyfriend Rich Paul, a top-flight sports agent, had apparently entered the negotiations on the show, which is allegedly projected to make $150 million.

The sources said that Adele had multiple bones of contention about the show, including but not limited to the choir and the sound system.

Caesars insiders also cited a disagreement over a swimming pool that was meant to be part of the concert set.

Previously, rumours have circulated that Adele fought with the set designer over the water feature

Last month, Adele reportedly fired her creative team and hired a whole new one in a bid to help save her postponed residency.

She is understood to have split with the creative team behind the residency and instead drafted in Take That’s creative expert to take the reins.

Her decision comes after she revealed the postponed run of concerts will ‘absolutely’ be happening this year as she wants to have another baby next year.

Adele parted ways with her long-term collaborator Esmeralda ‘Es’ Devlin, who designed the set for her 121-date tour in 2016, and has hired Kim Gavin and Stufish, according to The Telegraph.

Artistic director Kim has been behind every Take That tour since 1992 and has won a BAFTA for his work on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

While Stufish are the production designers who are behind the Rolling Stones upcoming 60th anniversary tour and Stormzy’s Heavy is the Head tour.

One source claimed: ‘In spite of the set costing millions to put together, Adele was unhappy with the result, and she made her feelings very clear to Es.

‘She was already nervous and the falling-out sent her spiralling into a panic because she was desperate that everything should be perfect.’

A source close to production told the publication that the new team will ‘develop a new show as everything from the Es show has been scrapped’.

Adele reportedly clashed with Es in ‘explosive arguments’ over the staging and production of the Las Vegas shows.
