Adele has revealed why she made the decision to cancel her Las Vegas residency at The Ceasers Palace Colosseum.
The singer announced the cancellation last January, in an emotional video shared on her Instagram. “My show ain’t ready,” a tearful Adele told fans, as she described the difficulties production had faced thanks to Covid.
Now, in a recent interview with ELLE magazine, the 34-year-old singer has gone into detail about her concerns with the show, and why she felt she needed to cancel it. “It had no soul” the singer explained, adding that the production “lacked intimacy”.

Adele also discussed the importance of her shows production values, and the difficulties she encountered in trying to refine the Colosseum’s massive stage to suit her understated performance style. Sharing the emotional toll the decision had on her, the Rolling In The Deep singer described the cancellation as “the worst moment in [her] career, by far”, going on to explain the embarrassment she felt at having to let down her fans.
While the decision clearly weighed heavily on the singer, ultimately, it seems she does not regret her choice, saying: “It actually made my confidence in myself grow, because it was a very brave thing to do…I’m very proud of myself for standing by my artistic needs.”

Having taken the time to reconfigure the show, Adele now appears much happier with her new production, and the “Weekend’s with Adele’ residency will run for three months at The Colosseum, Las Vegas later this year.
