The Grammy-winning artist tearfully postponed Weekends With Adele on January 20, giving fans who had already travelled to see the Ceasar’s Palace The Colosseum performance just 24 hours’ notice of the cancellation, citing COVID-related delays. Watch her announcement above.
According to The Sun, however, it is being suggested that space is being made for her at the venue between June and September this year as Keith Urban finishes his residency on June 18 and Los Stewart starts on September 23.
“That is the scheduling that would make the most sense,” a source told the publication.
“Talks are ongoing at the moment, and the hope is that Adele’s rearranged dates will be agreed very soon.”
According to the source, the 33-year-old ‘Easy On Me’ singer has “made it clear that next year is not an option” and everyone involved is “keen to lock the dates in.”
Adele also has commitments across the globe during that three-month period, however, including concerts in London’s Hyde Park in July.
The news comes after musician Adam Lambert expressed his support for Adele to the publication, saying he believes she made the right call in postponing Weekends With Adele last month.
The official reasoning behind the residency’s rescheduling was COVID-19, and Adele said that the show had been “absolutely destroyed” by delivery delays and half her team had COVID-19, making it “impossible” to get the show ready in time.
Rumours swirled following the announcement, however, with some alleging “explosive arguments” behind the scenes between Adele and set designer Esmeralda Devlin, and others suggesting the postponement came due to “problems” between Adele and her rumoured fiancé Rich Paul.
Lambert, who fronts Queen, said he found Adele’s video announcement of the residency’s cancellation “heart-wrenching” and that he “struggled” to watch it.
“Any artist who has toured understands that sometimes certain things are out of your control,” he told the publication.
“She accidentally got into a situation where the show just wasn’t ready.
“If the artist is not comfortable with what they are putting out on stage then that affects what the audience gets as well.
“It has to be right, or else it is not going to be what the audience deserves. I’m sure she is doing her best to get it back on track, and everyone will see a great show.”
