the postponement of his tour… and a lie to his fans?

ADELE. After the announcement of the postponement of Adele’s concerts in Las Vegas, the American media are wondering about the real reasons for this setback.

[Mis à jour le 25 janvier 2021 à 15h01] Did Adele lie to her fans? Last week, the singer announced, in tears in a video posted on social networks, the postponement of her residence in Las Vegas, which was to begin on January 21 and last until April. Adele then explained to her fans that the “delivery times and the Covid” had gotten the better of this series of concerts. “We tried absolutely everything we could to get everything ready on time (…) but we were crushed by the delivery times and the Covid. Half of my team is sick with the Covid (…) . I am disgusted”, advanced the artist, apologizing several times to “all those who made the trip” to go to the Colosseum of the Caesars Palace hotel in Las Vegas.

However, according to several American media, the reasons for this cancellation would be somewhat different. The postponement of the concerts would be linked to “violent disputes” about a waterfall installed in a swimming pool planned for this XXL show. According to the tabloid The Sun, Adele reportedly referred to this pool as an “old pond” and refused to continue with preparations. The singer should have taken her place in the middle of the pool, lifted by a crane, “creating the illusion that she was floating on the water”, adds the same source interviewed by The Sun.

“I am disgusted.” It is in tears, in a video posted on social networks, that singer Adele announces the postponement of her concerts in Las Vegas, where she was to begin a residency from January 21. “We tried absolutely everything we could to get everything ready on time (…) but we were crushed by the delivery times and the Covid. Half of my team is sick with the Covid and it was impossible to finish the show. I am disgusted”, explains the artist, apologizing several times to “all those who made the trip” to go to the Colosseum at the Caesars Palace hotel in Las Vegas.

“We will reschedule all the dates, we are in the process of taking care of it,” promises Adele in this same video. The singer’s residency in Las Vegas was scheduled until April, launching her new tour on the occasion of the release of her album 30, released in November.

Overheating on streaming listening platforms on Friday, November 19: between Orelsan’s album, that of Juliette Armanet but also, of course, that of the long-awaited Adele. The British singer reveals 30, his new disc composed of twelve tracks, including Easy on me, his event single released on October 15 and listened to some 24 million times in 24 hours, a first record (270 million today).

And records, Adele intends to break some with this new album. For the release of 30, the artist did not skimp on the means: for example, she had 500,000 vinyl copies of her album pressed, saturating the production chain, according to several American media including Variety. “Adele has reserved all the vinyl factories”, reacted in this sense Ed Sheeran, who also counted on the vinyl format of his last album.

Adele, with this fourth introspective album about her life, her divorce, her therapy or her weight loss, is on track to explode all stream records. Like his previous album, 25, sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.

On October 5, on social networks, the singer announced the release, on Friday October 15, 2021 at midnight (1 a.m. French time), of a new single, called Easy On Me. A publication accompanied by a musical and video extract of 21 small seconds. Something to stir up her community, already in suspense: a few days earlier, Adele fans around the world had spotted several projections of the number “30” on giant screens or various monuments such as the Palace of Westminster in London, the forecourt of Montmartre in Paris or even the Empire State Building in New York.

It was enough for the rumors to grow around the upcoming release of a long-awaited new album and its name. It must be said that Adele has a habit of giving the name to her records, her age. After 19, 21 and 25, released five years ago, the 33-year-old singer has therefore released their successor, 30.

Just six years ago came the huge commercial success of 2015: 25, who confirmed in passing the status of an essential world star of his interpreter. With this record, her third, Adele broke many sales records in various countries, particularly in England and the United States. A total of 20 million copies have been sold worldwide, in addition to being crowned with a Grammy Award for album of the year in 2017. After 25, the singer had celebrated this success during a gigantic world tour. The successor of 25 will he do better?
