Adele shared the reason for postponing her Las Vegas residency, revealing to Elle several reasons why she pulled out at the last minute.
“There was just no soul in it. The stage setup wasn’t right. It was very disconnected from me and my band, and it lacked intimacy,” she said in an interview with Emma Carmichael for the magazine. (The interview is titled “The Glorious Age of Adele” at Elle.)
Adele revealed the postponement to January 20, just one day before the date of her Colosseum residency at Caesars Palace, which is said to be the kickstarter.
She partnered with entertainment architecture firm Stufish to upgrade her Vegas stage to match her vision after the company arranged a glittery backdrop for her BRIT Awards performance in February.
In an interview with Elle, the artist said her new stage plan is based in part on the shape of the mantelpiece around the fireplace in her London home.
In July, Adele announced that the schedule for her residency had been postponed, extending from mid-November until March 2023.
Over the summer, Adele spent two nights at London’s Hyde Park, her first public appearance since 2017. She released her fourth album, 30, last November and then unveiled her Las Vegas residency.

Adele Takes the World by Storm
Adele signed a record deal with XL Recordings in 2006, right after graduating from the BRIT School with a major in arts.
Her debut album, 19, was then released in 2008 and hatched the UK top-five songs “Chasing Pavements” and “Make You Feel My Love.” The album was 8x platinum in the UK and triple platinum in the US.
Adele was given the Brit Award for Rising Star and Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
The singer dropped 21, her second studio album, in 2011. The album set records for the world’s best-selling album of the 21st century, selling more than 31 million copies. Additionally, it gained a certified 17x platinum in the UK – the all-time highest by a solo artist, and Diamond in the US.
Since then, Adele has taken the world by storm with her talent.
