The fans who arrived in Las Vegas in January found that Adele had canceled the opening of her residency show at 24 hours’ notice. These people had the most difficult stories and the worst heartbreak. There were other stories.
Tauny Durruthy believed she had conquered Christmas by getting a Playstation 5 for her children, but Rene stole the show with tickets for Adele’s second weekend at Caesars Palace Colosseum.
She jokes that her daughter “cried her eyes out in shock and I spent the rest of the day trying to overcompensate” for my small gift. “Needless to say, we were devastated when we received the news.
“Try explaining to a 10-year-old that Adele canceled her concert via Instagram one week prior. It’s not fun.”
The massive postponement of Weekends with Adele is still a huge disappointment in Las Vegas entertainment history. This is especially when you consider the time it took for the Brit to be reinstated on the Colosseum calendar. The show was canceled on January 20, and new dates were not announced until July 25,
After adding eight additional concerts to the original plan, the residency will finally arrive on November 18, and continue on Fridays and Saturdays until March 25,
While it might still be painful for some, will all this drama affect our perception of Adele and her music in any way? Tickets are not available from secondary sources, and all 32 shows have been sold out via Ticketmaster’s Verified Fans program.
Her show seems to have maintained its status as the hottest ticket on Strip, despite the launch of new production shows and other headlining residencies over the course of the year. Maybe her plans to take a longer break from music have only increased demand after her Weekends show in Vegas. Caesars would be pleased with the outcome of Caesars’ expanded residency, but it will not make up the nights that the Colosseum was closed for unexpected cancellations in 2022 and people had to settle for NetBet Casino.
Durruthy believes it’s still Adele and bust. Her family has lived in Las Vegas since 1996. She and her 11-year-old daughter moved to Mexico this summer. Durruthy will be returning to Las Vegas with her mother and daughter later this month to see the concert.
This is more than a concert for us. She says that this is a time for generations of bonding and creating memories. “I have been rocking with Adele ever since her first album, 19… but Adele is most special to me because I have many memories with my oldest daughter listening to her music. When my daughter was a baby, I sang “Someone Like You” to her every time.
True-blue fans aren’t going to let 10 months of anticipation get in the way. But, has this changed their expectations?
Durruthy states that if she had to, it would have been okay for her to sing from a chair in front of the stage. Adele’s customers aren’t looking for fireworks and waterfalls at concerts. We want to hear her sing and feel the emotions.
“I’ll be looking for fireworks, waterfalls, and other signs of the celebrations. I want to know what kept it up for one year.”
