The jilted ticketholders to opening night of Weekends With Adele asked, “What went wrong?”
Adele blamed COVID and “delivery delays” for canceling the start of her Las Vegas residency. However, backstage crew pointed the finger directly at Adele for being an indecisive perfectionist.
Another source suggested divisive tension between Adele and the set designer, who wanted a spectacular show opener with a 100-person gospel choir. The insider said, (quote) “In spite of the set costing millions, Adele was unhappy and made her feelings very clear. The falling-out sent her spiraling into a panic.” (The Sun, UK)
The president of the local stage union denied his crew was at fault. They met production timetable despite COVID infections among the crew.
Adele spent the weekend personally apologizing to ticket holders via FaceTime and offering them free merch. Her remaining hours were in meetings with Caesars “trying to figure how to go forward.” (Showbiz 411)
