On Friday, Adele spoke to the BBC’s Lauren Laverne on Desert island disc, and the subject of her deferred residency in Las Vegas. In January, the Grammy Award winner posted a tearful video on Instagram of her Caesar’s Palace performances not going as planned, leaving many ticket holders angry and frustrated. She didn’t expect the backlash to be so severe. In the interview, Adele told Laverne that the criticism made her feel like a “shell of a human”.
“I definitely feel people’s frustration and I’m devastated and I’m scared about letting them down,” she said. “I have been a cover for one person for several months. I just had to wait it out and just grieve, I guess, just grieving with the show and getting over the guilt, but it was brutal. “
She explains, “I thought I could put it together and make it work but I couldn’t, and I stand by that decision. I’m not just going to do a show because I have to or because people will be disappointed or because we’re going to lose a lot of money. I was like, the show isn’t good enough. “
Adele did not have an answer as to when the residency period might actually begin so ticket buyers could finally see her perform, but she said it would be “very, very soon”.
“I won’t update you if I have nothing to update you because that only leads to more frustration,” she added.
This weekend, Adele took to the stage again for her first live performance in years at London’s Hyde Park. It was clearly an emotional comeback to the stage and many spectators waited for hours in the heat to see the music star. Whenever her residency begins, it seems like fans are still excited to see it.
