On Thursday evening (Jan. 20), the superstar shared an emotional video on Instagram, where she revealed the unfortunate news.
In the clip, the “Easy On Me” singer apologized to fans for her tough decision to rescheduled her Las Vegas residency, which was originally scheduled to kick off this Friday (Jan. 21).
“Hi, listen I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready. We tried absolutely everything that 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. Half my crew, half my team are down with COVID — they still are,” Adele said.
As the clip continued, the powerhouse vocalist began to break down in tears as she explained why she was forced to postpone the residency.
“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,” she said. “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. I’m so upset, and I’m really embarrassed, and I’m so sorry to everyone that traveled again. I’m really, really sorry. I’m really sorry.”
She added, “We’re on it, we’re going to reschedule all of the dates, we’re on it right now, and I’m going to finish my show, and I’m going to get it to where it’s supposed to be. And, again, I’m so, so sorry, we’ve been up against so much and it just ain’t ready.”
“I’m really sorry,” the 33-year-old singer concluded.
The residency was set to take place at The Colosseum At Ceasar Palace. The venue also shared the below update.
“We understand the disappointment surrounding the postponement of WEEKENDS WITH ADELE,” the venues shared on Twitter. “Adele is an incredible artist, supremely dedicated to her music and her fans. Creating a show of this magnitude is incredibly complex. We fully support Adele and are confident the show she unveils at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace will be extraordinary.”

The Las Vegas Residency, titled Weekends With Adele, was scheduled to run from January 21 through April 16 with two concert each weekend.
The British hitmaker announced the concert residency in November 2021, following the release of her chart-topping fourth studio album, 30, which spawned the hit “Easy On Me.”
While her Vegas residency has been postponed until further notice, it’s unclear if her July concerts in Hyde Park will go on as planned.
