Adele’s Las Vegas residency faces ‘MORE delays as Caesars Palace axe staff over summer’


Adele’s long-awaited Las Vegas residency faces ‘MORE delays as Caesars Palace axe staff over summer’… after singer promised shows HAS to happen this year

Adele‘s highly-anticipated Las Vegas 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’.

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.

Meanwhile, fans have becoming increasingly disgruntled that the British superstar has failed to provide ticket-holders with an update on the postponed shows – despite her promise in February that the shows will be rescheduled for this year.

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. 

With frustrations mounting, fans are using social media to call out Adele for seemingly leaving them in the dark, with many calling the months-long delay ‘bogus’ and ‘diva-like.’

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.

With many in search of answers – and some in search of refunds – fans have been directing their complaints to Adele’s official Twitter, as well as her fan page Adele Access and Ticketmaster.

‘I’ve decided I’m requesting my refund from the Adele Vegas show. It’s been four months and we haven’t received any word on new dates,’ penned one disappointed fan via Twitter on Tuesday. ‘The way these flight prices are currently, it’s no longer worth it to me.’

Another read: ‘can y’all just reschedule the residency shows already so I can see my tickets to get my money back?!???

‘It’s been 4 months and i wasted so much $$ to go to vegas for nothing it’s ridiculous at this point.’

Replying to the tweet above, one fan called the four-month wait ‘bogus’ and suggested that the delay makes it hard for those who need time to make proper travel arrangements.

Criticized: One Twitter user criticized Adele fans for still supporting the 'diva' amid the drama -- even going as far as to say Adele 'doesn't deserve a penny'

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.

Though the online fury is evident, there are still a great deal of Adele fans who aren’t ready to jump down her throat just yet.

‘As a daydreamer, I just hope she releases her Vegas dates so people can stop bashing her,’ wrote one supportive fan, while another still had faith Adele would eventually hold up her end of the bargain and reschedule the residency.

‘the fact that @Adele will turn up out of the blue one of these days with new Vegas dates and content…quite frankly it scares me.’

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.

Insiders in the Caesars Palace camp told TMZ that the resort and Live Nation will have to arrive at a workable arrangement with the singer within a month in order for the show to go forward.

Adele’s current boyfriend Rich Paul, a top-flight sports agent, had apparently entered the negotiations on the show, which is allegedly projected to make $150 million.

The sources said that Adele had multiple bones of contention about the show, including but not limited to the choir and the sound system.

Caesars insiders also cited a disagreement over a swimming pool that was meant to be part of the concert set.

Previously, rumours have circulated that Adele fought with the set designer over the water feature
