One person penned: ‘Are you kidding me? And you still are quiet about Vegas? I’m disappointed in you.’

Another fumed: ‘ARE YOU COMING TO LAS VEGAS OR NOT?’

A third wrote: ‘Damn, Adele so I guess its f those that purchased tickets for Las Vegas.’

While a fourth added: ‘What happened to Vegas ? Lmao’

And a fifth said: ‘What about the residency dates????’

Her highly-anticipated residency has been hit by more delays as it has been reported that Caesars Palace – where she’s set to perform – have laid off staff over the summer.

According to The Sun, theatre workers at the hotel, casino and entertainment complex in Nevada had been told to ‘go home’ until September.

The alleged move throw’s Adele’s long-awaited gigs – which she claimed ‘has to happen’ this year – into doubt, with Rod Stewart set to start his performances at the venue in late September. 

The publication states that union officials representing staff at The Colosseum – the main entertainment venue for Caesars Palace – confirmed that members had been asked to ‘go home until September’. 

What's going on? According to The Sun , theatre workers at the hotel, casino and entertainment complex in Nevada had been told to 'go home' until September

And with Rod taking to The Colosseum in September and amid 34-year-old Adele’s recent hints that she want’s to have a baby in 2023, it’s looking likely that fans may have a longer wait to see the Chasing Pavements hitmaker perform. 

MailOnline have contacted representatives for Adele and Caesar’s Palace for comment. 

It had previously been suggested that space was being made for her to belt out her greatest hits at The Colosseum, with Keith Urban finishing his own residency on June 18th, before Rod Stewart sets up shop on September 23rd.

Addressing the issue in February, a source told The Sun: ‘That is the scheduling that would make the most sense.

‘Talks are ongoing at the moment, and the hope is that Adele’s rearranged dates will be agreed very soon.

‘She has made it clear that next year is not an option, and everyone is keen to lock the dates in.’

It was recently reported that the concerts, which were originally set to take place in January 2022, could be moved to Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood with Adele and her team said to be in ‘serious talks’ over finalising the venue.

However, there have been no word on whether the new venue has been secured, with Planet Hollywood allegedly having already laid on shows until Christmas with concerts from the likes of John Legend, Miranda Lambert and Shania Twain.

Adele devastated fans earlier this year when she canceled her highly-anticipated Las Vegas residency just 24 hours before she was set to hit the stage at Caesar’s Palace. 

Weekends with Adele was set to begin at Las Vegas’ Caesar’s Palace on January 21.

But the day before kick off, Adele announced that she’d be postponing the 12-week residency, citing the COVID-19 pandemic as a mitigating factor.

The last-minute cancellation left many fans out of pocket after spending thousands on tickets and plane fares to see her onstage.

It had previously been reported that the delays were down to the singer being displeased with the set design, particularly over a swimming pool erected in the middle of the stage.

Another accused the star of being ‘too busy’ with her new boyfriend, sports agent Rich Paul, to address the mounting fan concerns.

Adele began her romance with Rich last summer and the couple recently purchased a sprawling £47m mega-mansion, formerly owned by Sylvester Stallone. She recently took to social media to share loved-up snaps of herself and Rich holding up the keys to their new home.
