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

Adele’s much-anticipated Las Vegas stint has been hit by further delays following reports that Caesars Palace – where she will be performing – laid off staff over the summer.

According to The Sun, theater staff at the Nevada hotel, casino and entertainment complex have been told to “go home” by September.

The alleged move casts doubt on Adele’s long-awaited performances – which she claimed are “taking place” this year – as Rod Stewart is set to begin performing at the venue at the end of September.

Oh no! Adele’s much-anticipated Las Vegas stint has been hit by further delays following reports that Caesars Palace – where she will be performing – laid off staff over the summer

The publication said union officials representing staff at the Colosseum – the main entertainment venue at Caesars Palace – confirmed that members had been told to “go home by September”.

And with Rod heading to the Colosseum in September and 34-year-old Adele recently hinting that she wants a baby in 2023, it looks like fans will have to wait longer to see the Chasing Pavements hitmaker perform.

MailOnline has reached out to representatives from Adele and Caesar’s Palace for comment.

It had previously been hinted that space would be made for them to belt out their biggest hits at The Colosseum, with Keith Urban completing his own residency on June 18 before Rod Stewart opens shop on September 23.

What’s happening? According to The Sun, theater staff at the Nevada hotel, casino and entertainment complex have been told to “go home” by September.

A source addressed the issue in February, telling The Sun: “That’s the plan that would make the most sense.

“Discussions are ongoing at the moment and we hope Adele’s newly arranged dates will be agreed very soon.

“She has made it clear that next year is not an option and everyone is very keen to finalize the dates.”

It was recently reported that the concerts, originally slated to take place in January 2022, could be moved to the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood, with Adele and her team reportedly being in “serious talks” about completing the venue.

However, there was no word on whether the new venue has been secured as Planet Hollywood has reportedly already hosted shows featuring concerts by the likes of John Legend, Miranda Lambert and Shania Twain up until Christmas.

Meanwhile, fans are increasingly upset that the British superstar has failed to update ticket holders on the postponed shows – despite her promise in February that the shows would be rescheduled for this year.

Adele devastated fans earlier this year when she canceled her much-anticipated Las Vegas residency just 24 hours before her scheduled performance at Caesar’s Palace.

With growing frustration, fans have taken to social media to slam Adele for seemingly keeping them in the dark, with many calling the months-long delay “wrong” and “diva-like”.

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

But the day before kick-off, Adele announced she would be postponing the 12-week stay, 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 tickets to see her on stage.

With many looking for answers – and some looking for refunds – fans have directed their grievances to Adele’s official Twitter, as well as her fansites Adele Access and Ticketmaster.

“I have decided that I am claiming my refund from the Adele Vegas Show. It’s been four months and we haven’t received any news of any new dates,” one disappointed fan wrote via Twitter on Tuesday. “The way these airfares are currently, it’s no longer worth it to me.”

Another read: “Can you reschedule the residency shows right now so I can see my tickets to get my money back?!???

“It’s been 4 months and I wasted so much money going to Vegas for free it’s ridiculous at this point.”

In response to the tweet above, a fan called the four-month wait “wrong” and suggested the delay makes it difficult for those who need time to make proper travel arrangements.

“As a daydreamer, I just hope she publicizes her Vegas dates so people can stop banging on her,” wrote one supportive fan, while another still believed Adele was keeping her end of the bargain and postponing the residency would.

“The fact that @Adele will pop up one day out of the blue with new Vegas dates and content… honestly, it scares me.”

It had previously been reported that the delays were due to the singer’s dissatisfaction with the set design, particularly over a swimming pool constructed in the center of the stage.

Another accused the star of being “too busy” with her new boyfriend, sports agent Rich Paul, to address growing concerns from fans.

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

While the online anger is evident, there are still plenty of Adele fans who aren’t ready to jump her throat just yet.

Adele’s current boyfriend Rich Paul, a high-profile sports agent, had apparently entered negotiations over the show, which is said to bring in $150 million.

The sources said Adele had several points 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 should be part of the concert set.

Previously, rumors circulated that Adele had argued with the set designer over the water feature.

Adele reportedly fired her creative team and hired a whole new one in April to save her postponed residency.

It is understood she has parted ways with the creative team behind the residency and instead called in Take That’s creative expert to take the reins.

Her decision comes after she revealed the rescheduled concerts will “absolutely” take place this year as she plans to have another baby next year.

Adele split from longtime collaborator Esmeralda ‘Es’ Devlin, who designed the set for her 121-date tour in 2016, and has hired Kim Gavin and Stufish, according to The Telegraph.
