Adele’s Las Vegas residency is officially back on
Seven months after putting her Las Vegas residency on hold, Adele has finally unveiled new dates for her shows at Caesars Palace.
In a message to fans, an “ecstatic” Adele announced the updated schedule and reiterated that she was “heartbroken” upon postponing her residency at the last minute in January. In addition to the 24 rescheduled shows, eight more performances have been added.
Adele’s Vegas residency, “Weekends With Adele,” will now run from Nov. 18 to March 25 at the Colosseum.
“After what feels like an eternity of figuring out logistics for the show that I really want to deliver, and knowing it can happen, I’m more excited than ever!” the “Oh My God” singer wrote in a statement issued on Monday.
“Now I know for some of you it was a horrible decision on my part, and I will always be sorry for that, but I promise you it was the right one. To be with you in such an intimate space every week has been what I’ve most been looking forward to and I’m going to give you the absolute best of me. Thank you for your patience, I love you.”
Delays: Earlier this year, the “Easy On Me” singer broke down in tears while admitting that her Vegas show wasn’t “ready” and delaying the launch of her residency. Adele explained that delivery delays and a major COVID-19 outbreak among her team made the show “impossible to finish” in time.
“We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time,” she said a day before the residency was set to begin. “I can’t give you what I have right now, and I’m gutted. I’m gutted.”
Directly addressing fans who purchased tickets for opening night and had already arrived in Vegas to see her, the “30” artist added that she was “really embarrassed” and “so sorry to everyone who traveled to get here.”
Following the Grammy winner’s January announcement, several complained about spending thousands of dollars on travel expenses and tickets.
“I definitely felt everyone’s disappointment,” Adele told BBC Radio 4’s “Desert Island Discs” earlier this month. “I was devastated and I was frightened about letting (fans) down, and I thought I could pull it together and make it work and I couldn’t.”
Still, she defended her decision.
“I’m not just going to do a show because I have to or because people will be let down or because we’re going to lose loads of money,” she added. “The show’s not good enough.”
According to Ticketmaster, fans who previously bought tickets through its “Adele Verified Fan Presale” but have since received refunds will have the first opportunity to buy new tickets during the “Refunded Fans Presale” on Aug. 10.
The remaining tickets will go on sale Aug. 11 but will be available only to people who registered and were waitlisted for the previous “Adele Verified Fan Presale.”
