Fans will be delighted to know that they won’t need to wait too long to finally see the “Rolling in the Deep” singer performing in Las Vegas. Her Weekends With Adele residency will begin on November 18, 2022, just in time for the holiday season, and run through March 25, 2023.
The “Hello” singer wants to make sure as many fans see her as possible. Not only did she reschedule all 24 of her previously postponed shows, but she also added eight new dates to her calendar to give all of her fans an opportunity to see her perform live.
Ticket purchase priority will be given to those who had purchased tickets for her original residency earlier this year but had those tickets refunded. Those ticket sales are scheduled to go on sale in around two weeks on August 10.
Adele Was ‘Heartbroken’ To Have To Reschedule Her Las Vegas Residency
Adele posted a statement on her website and her social media accounts to apologize to her fans for the delay in announcing the rescheduled tour dates. “Words can’t explain how ecstatic I am to finally be able to announce these rescheduled shows. I truly was heartbroken to have to cancel them,” she began.
The Grammy-award-winning artist had previously cited COVID-19 concerns as a reason for the show. However, according to her recent statement, it seems those problems have been resolved. She wrote, “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!”
S“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,” she continued. “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.”
“Thank you for your patience, I love you,” Adele concluded, advising her fans that they could find out more information on her website.
When Was Her Original Las Vegas Residency Supposed To Take Place?
Adele’s Las Vegas Residency was initially announced in November 2021. Shows were supposed to start on January 21 and continue through the spring, ending on April 16.
However, Adele posted a tearful video to her social media accounts shortly before the concert was scheduled to take place, announcing that her Las Vegas Residency could not continue on as planned. The “Easy On Me” singer said that she and her team had “been awake for 30 hours” trying to figure things out but have “run out of time.”
“I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed and I’m so sorry to everyone that traveled again,” she said in the video. “I’m really, really sorry.” She said, “It’s been impossible, we’ve been up against so much and it just ain’t ready,” and said that tour dates would be rescheduled and they would work to get the show “where it’s supposed to be.”
However, with little to no information about the rescheduling from January to the end of July, many fans had begun to lose hope that her Las Vegas Residency would ever happen. Fortunately for her fans, it looks like the show will go on as planned.
Adele Says She Was ‘Devastated’ To Have To Postpone Her Residency
Earlier this month, Adele confessed to BBC Radio 4 interview that she did not regret delaying her shows, despite her fans’ reaction to thedisappointing news.
“I definitely felt everyone’s disappointment and I was devastated, and I was frightened about letting them down,” she said. “I thought I could pull it together and make it work and I couldn’t, and I stand by that decision.”
“I’m not going to just do a show because I have to or because people are going to be let down or because we’re going to lose loads of money,” she continued. “I’m like, the show’s not good enough.”
To make it up to her fans, an intimate documentary about her life, and the original failed Residency attempt, is reportedly in the works. Fans who are interested can read more about that here.
