Tearful Adele thanks ‘best fans in the world’ after Las Vegas shows cancelled


Adele has thanked her fans for their support following the last minute cancellation of her residency in Las Vegas.

The Easy on Me singer yesterday issued announced that her 24-night residency in the American city will be postponed in a tearful statement.

She said that the postponement was down to delivery delays and the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

A number of fans in the UK were left furious as they face losing thousands of pounds due to the cancellation – which was made just the day before the opening night.

But it appears that support for Adele was overwhelming as the singer acknowledged the “graciousness and love” she had shown in response to the decision to cancel.

“I have the best fans in the world!” she wrote on Friday.

“Your graciousness and love tonight is overwhelming! Thank you.”

In an emotional post on social media, the Easy On Me singer said her production team had tried “absolutely everything” to pull the show together in time but that it had been “impossible”.

Adele released her fourth album 30 in early November and her Las Vegas residency was due to begin at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Hotel on January 21.

Following news of the cancellations, people were quick to offer support.

One fan responded to her Twitter announcement by writing: “I had tickets to see u tomorrow and it’s fine, health will always come first and specially in times like this.

“Can’t wait for all the shows to get rescheduled cuz I can’t wait to have the best time of my life with you on stage, pls don’t feel guilty, it breaks my heart, I LOVE YOU.”

US comedian Kathy Griffin tweeted: “Not your fault, Doll” followed by a red heart emoji, while singer Pink also sympathised with Adele, commenting on her Instagram post: “Sweetheart I have been there.

“The pressure is immense and I’m gutted for all of you. It will come together and it will be amazing when it does,” Pink added.

Caesars Palace tweeted its support for the artist and her fans, saying: “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.”
