'I'm gutted': Tearful Adele forced to reschedule Las Vegas residency
Adele was in tears as she announced she had to reschedule the start of her Las Vegas residency because of COVID.
"We've been up against so much and it just ain't ready. I'm so sorry," the star said on social media.
"We've tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you.
"But we've been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID.
"Half my team, half my crew are hit by COVID. They still are and it's been impossible to finish the show."
Adele, 33, had been supposed to do two concerts each weekend from 21 January until 16 April in the US city.
"I'm gutted. I'm gutted and I'm sorry it's so last minute."
She said she was "so upset and embarrassed" but "it's been impossible".
Adele said all dates would be rescheduled.
The British singer's fourth studio album, 30, was revealed to be the fastest-selling of the year in its first week of release.
