‘The show must go on’ is the cardinal rule of show business; his first and only commandment.

And yet, Adele, whose unprecedented singing career is a global phenomenon, woke up today to a major backlash after deciding she “wasn’t ready” for a series of mega-dollar concerts in Las Vegas.

Fans, many of whom had paid up to £9,000 for resold tickets and had already traveled long distances for opening night, were left angry and penniless when Adele opted to pull the plug at the 11th hour of the series of concerts that would follow . she has been given £500,000 per show.

Gillian Rowland-Kain, 32, was already on her flight to Las Vegas from New York with her twin sister when she found out about the cancellation through social media

The Brooklyn lawyer said: “I was furious that Adele waited so long at the last minute to make this call .”

I recognize that it is not a call that any artist wants to make, but she would have known yesterday that the show would not be ready tomorrow.

Her lack of attention is amazing.  I am angry and frustrated.

Another disappointed fan wrote online: ‘I know how hard it is to put on a show, especially in a pandemic. But it’s also hard to save enough money, take time off from work in a short-staffed hospital, book a flight and a hotel, fly out two days early, and find out 30 hours before the show that the reason we came is not going to happen.’

A British fan named David posted a photo from outside Caesars Palace just after the shows were cancelled.

He tweeted: “Christmas present went pear shaped as my wife and daughter were on their way to meet me in Vegas and unfortunately Adele had a cancel.”

Visibly distraught, Adele posted a video on social media Thursday night by way of explanation.

It was filmed in the £30,000-a-night penthouse suite at Caesars Palace, where she is holed up with her management team and her boyfriend, 40-year-old American sports agent Rich Paul.

“I can’t give you what I have right now,” said the 33-year-old star, who is already known in the music world for a perfectionism that borders on artistic intransigence. ‘It’s just not ready.’

The show was meant to run on Friday and Saturday nights from now until April. The explanation given was that Covid had derailed production.

Adele said that “half” of her crew and her team were infected with the virus, which is in fact at the peak of an increase in Nevada.  @
