Did Adele cancel her Las Vegas concerts because of diva whims?
Adele's tears and disarray will not have been enough to calm the anger of her fans. This Thursday evening, the star published a video on social networks indicating that the first of her 24 concerts in Las Vegas, will not take place this Friday, January 21 as planned. Half of his team has contracted Covid, which has caused delays. We did everything we could to get everything ready on time, she assured in tears.
Within hours of the event, fans, who had paid between $85 and $12,000 for a concert ticket, had already flocked to Las Vegas. Some paid more than $30,000 on resale websites. They came from all over the world to see the singer. The 33-year-old artist promised to reschedule all dates soon, but many fans had already paid for their flights and accommodation on site.
On Twitter, a disappointed fan named Amy Campbell explained that she had saved up to see the Easy On Me performer live. People with tickets to the first show may not be able to afford the time or money to reschedule something like this. Other users also complained about taking days off work to attend Adele's shows and felt the singer's last-minute announcement was unprofessional. Announced with great fanfare last November after the release of her album 30, Weekends With Adele was to mark the singer's official return to the stage since 2017.
