In a sad video presented on Instagram, an apologetic Adele said her team “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.”

“I’m so sorry but my show ain’t ready,” she said. “Half my crew, half my team is down with Covid. They still are, and it’s been impossible to finish the show. And I can’t give you what I have right now, and I’m gutted.”

The singer further added that her team has run out of time adding that it has been difficult to complete the show and kept up with that she’s tired agreed to stay alert for over 30 hours.

Adele’s series of shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace was set to start Friday and go through April 16.
Tickets were made accessible in December, with record-breaking sales.

“And 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,” she said. “And I’m so upset, and I’m really embarrassed and I’m so sorry to everyone who traveled, again.”

The “Hello” singer said dates would be rescheduled.

“It’s been impossible. We’ve been up against so much, and it just ain’t ready,” she said. “I’m really sorry.”

The show, named Weekends with Adele, was initially set to go through April 16 with two shows each weekend.

Adele first declared the residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in November last year, following the release of her fourth studio album, 30. The show was named Weekends with Adele.

Caesars Palace declared Thursday that the venue supports Adele’s decision and those concertgoers with hotel reservations could get full refunds. Those as of now at the hotel could get refunds for their Friday and Saturday night stays.

Following her Las Vegas residency dates, the singer is additionally scheduled to perform two times in London’s Hyde Park in July – however, she didn’t address whether this was liable to change in the video.

The two shows are part of BST Hyde Park’s summer series, with different concerts set to star Elton John, Pearl Jam, and Duran.

Last week, Adele dropped the music video to her fan-favorite track “Oh My God” off the new album.

Upon the video’s release, Adele said thanks to her team included, composing via social media, “I got to work with Sam Brown again for ‘Oh My God’ who directed the ‘Rolling In The Deep’ video! So to collaborate again a decade later was nostalgic to say the least.”

“We filmed this one on the day Easy On Me dropped, a million things were going on all at once. But the attention to detail from the crew was borderline hilarious – thank you so much for your patience and pulling it all together it was a lot of fun,” she said. “Although right at the end a huge python was on set so I skidaddled my arse straight out of there!”

She added, “Big thank you to Harris Reed, Louis Vuitton and The Queens Haus – Vivienne Westwood for the most stunning clothes for me to sing my ‘I’m a hot mess’ song in! ♥️.”

Adele’s planned residency follows the November release of her most recent blockbuster album “30,” her first studio LP in six years and fourth overall. Last week, she dropped the video for its second single, “Oh My God..”
