Adelle fans left raging after suspended tour leaves fans thousands out of pocket

Adelle fans from across the world had gathered in the US to watch her perform however now they are left talking of their fury over Adele’s last-minute gigs cancellation.

Ticket holders had spent thousands of pounds travelling, paying for hotels etc to see the star for the opening of her 24-night residency in Las Vegas.

But late on Thursday Adele announced in a tearful Instagram video that she was postponing the concerts due to Covid among her crew and “delivery delays”.

It could be months before they are rescheduled.

Antony Frear, from York, had travelled to the US to see the star as part of his 50th birthday celebrations with friends Simon Bell, 45, and Aaron Tyson, 38.

They each paid £4,300 for return flights, plus hundreds for a three-night stay at Ceasar’s Palace where Adele was due to perform. The concert tickets had cost them £330 each.

Antony said: “I am so angry. “Adele has form for this.

“We have spent thousands getting here but the ticket is not even worth the paper it is written on.

“It is disgraceful. Adele with all her millions should be refunding the money that we have shelled out.”

Simon added: “I’ll never listen to her again. She’s dead to me.

“Her crew may have gone down sick but why can’t she still appear?”

American fans also told of their anger at the cancellations.

Alison Devine, who flew from Tuscaloosa, Florida, for the show said: “It stinks. It doesn’t sound right at all.

“Delivery days must have been known about days before, if not weeks. As for Covid, it seems too convenient.

“They say we can have our tickets for when the new dates are announced but how the hell do I know what I’ll be doing then?”

In her announcement axing the gigs, the singer revealed she had been “awake for 30 hours” trying to rescue the production but run out of time.

She told fans: “I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready.

“I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed. We’ve been destroyed by delivery delays and Covid. Half my crew and team are [ill] with Covid and still are, and it’s been impossible to finish the show.

“I can’t give you what I have right now and I’m gutted. I’m sorry, it’s last minute. We’re going to reschedule all dates. I’m going to finish my show.”
