Adele shares reason why she cancelled Las Vegas residency hours before show

Singer-songwriter Adele cancelled her Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in January.

She has said she will now be focusing on a brand new show after overseeing its creative direction, with her priority creating the intimacy she felt it was missing.

Las Vegas fans were left devastated as they had already bought their tickets for the show and Adele cancelled just hours before it was about to start.

Adele decided to pull the plug as she looked at the rows upon rows of empty seats in a soundcheck.

She told Elle: "There was just no soul in it."

She continued: "The stage set-up wasn't right. It was very disconnected from me and my band, and it lacked intimacy. And maybe I tried too hard to give it those things in such a controlled environment."

Adele admitted that even though there was a lot of fallout from her decision she refused to go back on her choice.

"The first couple of months were really, really hard but it actually made my self-confidence grow, because it was a very brave thing to do.

"And I don’t think many people would have done what I did. I’m very proud of myself for standing by my artistic needs."

Adele now said she is focusing on her brand new show and will be making sure that there will be the intimacy that was missing from the original one.

Adele said that she has revamped plans for the 32 concert dates.

She explained that she wants her show to "tell the story" of the beginning of her career.

She believes that the new show will be "beautiful" and is happy that it is "all about the music."

In January Adele told fans, many of whom were already in Las Vegas at the time, several different reasons behind her pushing back the residency.

'My show ain't ready,' she said. 'We've tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time, and for it to be good enough for you. But we've been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID.'

After rescheduled dates for the gig were leaked, the singer took to Instagram to finally confirm the show will start in November as she thanked fans for their 'patience'.
