She made the announcement in a teary Twitter video today. The shows, called “A Weekend with Adele,” were sold out and expected to be the most lucrative residency in Las Vegas history.
“I’m so sorry,” the singer said in a video posted to Twitter on Thursday. “My show ain’t ready. 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 added, “It’s been impossible to finish the show,” she said, tearing up. “I’m gutted, I’m sorry it’s so last minute.”
Each show was reportedly bringing Adele nearly $700,000. The show has generated around $2 million in ticket sales, and scalpers were asking as much as $5,000 for packages.
