Seven months after she put her Las Vegas stay on hold, Adele has finally announced new dates for her shows at Caesars Palace.
In a message to fans, an “excited” Adele announced the updated schedule and reiterated that she was “heartbroken” at the last minute postponing of her stay in January. Eight more performances were added in addition to the 24 postponed shows.
Adele’s Vegas residency Weekends With Adele will now take place at the Coliseum from November 18th to March 25th.
“After what feels like forever figuring out the logistics for the show I really want to deliver and knowing it can happen, I’m more excited than ever!” the “Oh My God” singer wrote in a statement , which was released on Monday.
“Now I know it was a terrible decision on my part for some of you and I will always be sorry for that, but I promise you it was the right one. Being with you each week in such an intimate space was what I looked forward to the most and I will give you the absolute best of me. Thank you for your patience, I love you.”
Earlier this year, the “Easy On Me” singer broke down in tears after admitting her Vegas show wasn’t “done” and delaying the start of her residency. Adele explained that delivery delays and a major COVID-19 outbreak among her team made it impossible to finish the show in time.
“We tried absolutely everything to put it together in time,” she said a day before the residency began. “I can’t give you what I have right now and I’m devastated. I’m burned out.”
The 30 artist addressed fans who bought tickets for the opening night and had already arrived in Vegas to see them directly, adding that she was “really embarrassed” and “everyone who came to come here, so sorry”.
After the Grammy winner’s announcement in January, several complained about spending thousands of dollars on travel and tickets.
“I definitely felt everyone’s disappointment,” Adele told BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs earlier this month. “I was devastated and terrified of renting out [fans] below, and I thought I could pull it together and make it work, but I couldn’t.
Nevertheless, she defended her decision.
“I’m not going to do a show just because I have to, or because people will be disappointed, or because we’re going to lose a lot of money,” she added. “The show isn’t good enough.”
According to Ticketmaster, fans who previously purchased tickets through the Adele Verified Fan Presale but have since received refunds will have their first opportunity to purchase new tickets during the Refunded Fans Presale on August 10th.
The remaining tickets will go on sale on August 11, but are only available to people who have registered and been on the waitlist for the previous Adele Verified Fan Presale.
