Adele announces new dates for postponed Las Vegas residency

News

Adele has announced new dates for her postponed Las Vegas residency.

The singer, who cancelled the original dates at the start of the year, will now begin her Weekends with Adele concerts on 18 November running to 25 March, taking in 32 shows.

The residency was originally announced in support of the album 30 which was the best-selling album of 2021. Adele then cancelled the day before it was set to begin.

“Words can’t explain how ecstatic I am to finally be able to announce these rescheduled shows,” she shared on social media. “I truly was heartbroken to have to cancel them. But after what feels like an eternity of figuring out logistics for the show that I really want to deliver, and knowing it can happen, I’m more excited than ever!”

In a July interview on Desert Island Discs, the singer revealed that the reason was down to quality. “The show was not good enough,” she said. “Maybe my silence has been deadly, I don’t know. But it was horrible.”

Adele also spoke about the grief she felt after cancelling as well as the overwhelming guilt. “I was a shell of a person for a couple of months,” she said. “I just had to wait it out and just grieve it, I guess, just grieve the shows and get over the guilt, but it was brutal.”

In her new statement, she also added: “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.”

There will be a select number of tickets for the performances available with fans who held tickets for the original dates being prioritised.

Adele recently made a return to the stage at Hyde Park in London as part of British Summer Time.
