Adele postpones Las Vegas residency due to illness

Adele is taking some time for herself. On the evening of February 27, the singer announced that she had to suspend her Las Vegas residency, Weekends With Adele, due to health reasons. As she explained on Instagram, she had been sick since her last race in November and never took the time to fully recover.

"Sadly, I have to take a break from my Las Vegas residency," she wrote. "I felt sick at the end of the last round and throughout the break. I wasn't fully fit before the show resumed and now I'm sick again and unfortunately it's all taking a toll on my voice. Waiting for medical advice Now, I can only take a good rest."

As a result, Adele has postponed 10 shows scheduled for March 1-30 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace and is currently trying to reschedule those weekends. "We are working out the details and you will receive information as soon as possible," she wrote.

She was even more apologetic in the caption, writing: "I love you, I will miss you like crazy and I'm so sorry for any inconvenience."

This isn't the first time Adele's Las Vegas residency has suffered a setback. She postponed a run originally planned for early 2022, just one day before it was scheduled to begin. She posted an emotional video on Instagram explaining that the show isn't ready yet. "We've made every effort to put it together in a timely manner and make it good enough for you," she said. "I can't give you what I have right now."

That August, she opened up to Elle magazine about postponing the show, calling it "the worst moment of my career so far" and explaining her displeasure with the planned show. "There's no soul in it," she said. "The staging was wrong. It was very disconnected from me and my band and lacked intimacy."

Adele's revamped show eventually premiered in November 2022 to critical acclaim, leading to her extending her residency twice, for a total of 80 performances to date. She currently plans to resume performing in May, with 10 shows through June 15, before heading overseas for a limited residency in Munich in August.
