Adele Faces Backlash for Postponement on Vegas Residency

Recommended Posts

Article from Deadline:


Angry backlash from disappointed fans and skepticism over the reasons behind Adele’s cancellation of her planned Las Vegas residency have cast a shadow over the singer’s career. It’s left some wondering if her acknowledged massive stage fright has made it impossible for her to continue performances.

While fans have been largely forgiving in posts reacting to Adele’s online announcement of her postponement of a Las Vegas residency scheduled to run on weekends through April, others have not been so dismissive.

Most questions center around the timing of the announcement, coming a day before the scheduled start of her residency. That left many fans who had flown in and booked hotel rooms with no alternatives, and many said they couldn’t afford to return for whenever the shows would be rescheduled. But some music industry professionals noted in reports that axiom of show business that “the show must go on,” pointing out that Adele’s show was abot her singing and not flying with a harness or other spectacular production.

On Friday evening, fans lined up at the Colesseum at Caesar’s Palce at the just-opened “Weekends with Adele” merchandise store adjacent to the venue. Some sang her songs, while a lucky few were tapped to do a Facetime conversation with the singer.

Fans who had a concert ticket with them at the merchandise store received a gift tote bag with an Adele T-shirt, magnets and specialty keychain. The boutique will reportedly continue to offer the apology gifts to ticketholders for a while.

While the gifts and facetiming were a nice touch, some industryites pointed to past cancellations as a harbinger that the shows would never be held. Adele has pulled out of planned US tours in 2008 and 2011, citing family issues and vocal problems. She also canceled two London shows in 2017, promising to reschedule. She never did.

Well she said they tried their best to make it work. Figuring out how to make it happen but they couldn't. It would be still illogical if she would announce it 2 or 3 or 7 days be4 . Like u still have some days for a work to  be done. But  i feel for a ppl already booked hotels and plane tickets. Not only her tickets should be refunding but also hotels, plane tickets. Ppl paid to come to vegas to see her not to stay in hotel and then go back

Throwing this out there in the universe: Adele is and will be seen as a sellout.

i never saw why people became obsessed with her and then she gets a surgery to loose weight when before she claimed not to care... Her cancelling on fans who spent so much money is unfair . If it were production issues it should've been announced at least a week before boot the night that's ridiculous. If she truly cared about her fans she would've just stuck it out with her singing in a her chair. Then postponed the rest.
