In a tearful video posted to her social media accounts Thursday afternoon, Adele announced that her highly anticipated residency show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, set to begin Friday, January 21, will be postponed.
“We’ve 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,” she said, noting that half her crew is dealing with the virus. “We’ve run out of time and I’m so upset, and really embarrassed, and I’m so sorry to everyone that’s traveled again. I’m really, really sorry.”
The singer said all dates will be rescheduled. An official announcement from Caesars and Live Nation had not been received as of 3 p.m. Thursday.
The Weekends With Adele residency was announced in November, 24 concerts on Friday and Saturday nights at the Colosseum running from January 21 through April 16. Ticket demand was so high that a traditional public on-sale was unnecessary; the shows sold out via Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan sign-up process.
