Adele Tearfully Apologises To Fans As She Postpones Her Las Vegas Residency
| Last updated
Adele has tearfully apologised to fans while revealing her Las Vegas residency shows have been postponed for the time being.
The British singer was meant to kick off her residency at Caesars Palace's Colosseum today (January 21), however the coronavirus pandemic has thrown her a curve ball.
She revealed that half her team are struck down with Covid-19 at the moment and they're not able to put on the show that she's been working hard on.
The 33-year-old said they're simply not ready for two shows a week with so many people off sick.
The post on Instagram says dates for the residency, which was meant to run until mid-April, will be rescheduled to later in the year.
Adele said she is heartbroken knowing people have made plans, booked plane tickets, organised hotel rooms and got very excited to see her perform her new album and her old hits, however she knows she can't put on the show as planned.
She added that her team has been up for more than 30 hours trying to work out a way that the residency can go on but they've been forced to postpone it until further notice.
Fans were already up in arms about the cost of the tickets to see her in Sin City.
The shows at Caesar's Palace were advertises at 'dynamic' prices that were suspected to be around $400 or $500 per seat in the first place, before then being announced at the pre-sale as starting from $85 at the back to an already whopping $685 for seats down the front.
The situation got even worse when those same tickets ended up on re-sale sites at even worse prices.
Sites like StubHub and Ticketmaster were offering the chance to buy tickets for anywhere between $2,000 and $35,000.
One fan raged: "Adele out her rabbit a** mind with these concert ticket prices."
Another said: " Guess we're the ones paying her husband alimony."
Incidentally, that dynamic ticket sale strategy meant that 'ticket prices may fluctuate, based on demand, at any time.'
Still, anyone paying $35,000 for the privilege would either have to be the world's largest Adele fan, have rocks in their head, or both.
