Adele Shares Emotional Social Media Post Announcing Rescheduled Shows

The singer is 'ecstatic' to announce her Las Vegas residency dates

An 'ecstatic' Adele has announced the rescheduled dates for her cancelled Las Vegas shows in an emotional Instagram post.

The 'Someone Like You' singer, 34, took to the website 'after what feels like an eternity' to announce that she will now be performing at The Colosseum from November 2022 to March 2023.

Adele cried when she announced the initial cancellation, which you can watch below:

In her post, the singer reiterated that she was 'heartbroken' to have cancelled the shows in the first place, but she is glad that she has finally sorted out the logistics of her four-month residency.

She explained: "Now I know for some of you it was a horrible decision on my part, and I will always be sorry for that, but I promise you it was the right one.

"To be with you in such an intimate space every week has been what I've most been looking forward to and I'm going to give you the absolute best of me."

Adele then thanked her fans for being patient and expressed her love for them.

The official start date for the rescheduled shows is 18 November and they will run until 25 March 2023.

The residency was cancelled just a day before it was due to begin in January of this year, with the singer explaining that her show simply wasn't ready.

She explained: "Hiya, listen - I'm so sorry but my show ain't ready.

"We've tried absolutely everything we can to pull it together in time and for it to be good enough for you but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and Covid.

"Half my crew, half my team have come down with Covid - they still are - and it's been impossible to finish the show.

"And I can't give you what I have right now and I'm gutted. I'm gutted and I'm sorry it's so last minute.

"We've been awake for over 30 hours now, trying to figure it out and we've run out of time."

Adele on the red carpet.

The announcement came as a particularly big disappointment to the many Adele fans who had travelled to Las Vegas to see the opening show.

As reported by Hull Live, one disappointed fan said: "Her crew may have gone down sick but why can’t she still appear?"

The singer said that while she empathised with her fans who had wasted time and money travelling to see her, she was convinced it was the right decision.

She said of the backlash on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs: "It was horrible and the reaction was brutal. I was a shell of a person for a couple of months."
