Thread: Adele cancels all of her shows at last minute, fans outraged, many out big money

  1. #1
    What a clusterfuck.

    Adele had a planned Caesars residency starting this month, which excited fans, as she does not do many concerts. However, she has had a long history of cancelling previous concerts. In 2011, the cancellations were due to throat surgery, and in 2017, again some shows didn't take place because of supposed throat issues. None of these were rescheduled.

    Adele's residency was to begin yesterday on Friday, January 21. On January 20 -- less than 24 hours before her show was to begin -- she cancelled her entire 24-show residency, citing being short staffed due to Omicron.



    She claimed that half her team was out due to COVID, and deliveries didn't show up. "I cancelled it because my show ain't ready", she said in the above video statement.

    The tickets to the show were extremely expensive, with some of them going for $5,000 or more. Caesars initially claimed that the show was in such high demand that it wouldn't be comped for anyone, but of course that was bullshit, as various people on social media posted their e-mailed offers for free Adele tickets.

    Still, this show was considered a very big deal, and Caesars heavily promoted it.

    However, some believe the tears cried are of the crocodile variety, and Adele simply is experiencing stage fright or contract remorse.

    First, many are skeptical that her crew couldn't have been replaced, given the big money behind the production. Second, people are perplexed that the announcement came with less than a day's noitce. If the show wasn't ready on Thursday, shouldn't she have known on Tuesday that it wouldn't be ready?

    Most damning is the fact that all 24 dates have been postponed. As you all know, Omicron symptoms tend to mostly resolve within 7 days. Her show was only to play weekends, meaning that the 24-day residency was actually lasting until April 16. How could she possibly cancel the entire thing, given that the last dates are three months out?



    Worst yet, many came from across the pond (that is, England) to see Adele at Caesars, at great personal and financial expense. Even though they will get a refund for the show tickets, they are obviously out the airline tickets. Laughably, Caesars is only refunding the hotel nights for January 21 and 22, but not any others, regardless of whether someone was holding tickets to Adele.

    It's even worse for people staying at non-Caesars properties, as some of those hotels are outright refusing refunds.

    Brutal.

    Some of Adele's fans are furious about this, and feel that at the very least, she should have given a few days' notice. Indeed, just 3 days notice would have been enough for most fans from overseas to cancel their flights and hotel reservations.


    Here's a good Daily Mail article which shows some of the fan frustration tweets: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...gas-shows.html

    Adele is an extraordinary talent, but her ticket prices are nowhere near what it's worth. It's not the end of the world when she cancels shows. So there's trip inconveniences and financial hits to people who made plans? Tough love--its called LIFE.

    While her stardom has soared over the years, so has her messy life. Fame got to her head and she divorced her non-spotlight husband because he didn't "excite her" any more. So she hooks up with some splashy dark-as-coal black guy and drags him out to sit courtside at Lakers games for photo-ops. She cancels concerts at the drop of a hat. She thought she could dictate casino policy about comping show tickets to higher level players and was handed her lunch. She lost a bunch of weight and has turned into a real bitch. Somebody needs to step up and help stop the runaway train she's on that's headed for a town called Tragedy....and it ain't Sambo.

    This is what happens to the liberal elite when they don't pay attention to what goes on in the real world. And anyone stupid enuf to buy advance tickets to an Adele show has simply not wanted to know her history. Now, they pay. And whine.

    Like many of these misguided divas, she makes great music. You can listen to it at home for next to nothing.

    These fucks (celebrities, entertainers, sports professionals, etc.) should be PAYING ME to get out of the comfort of my home to watch them. Not the other way around.

    If they needed stagehands, there's a whole bunch in LA, out of work this week due to the cancellation of the Grammys.
    The supply chain makes no sense.
    I could see cancelling if her whole band was down with covid (most artists like working with specific musicians)
    The show was probably not ready and having said that, she was not going out half-assed, especially with what's she is getting paid and what people are paying.
    However, instead of cancelling, she should have done a soft opening, sans over the top production values and creatively pulled it off.
    Also, why cancel all shows, why not, just the next four weekends. Tom Reeg got his dick yanked on this one.

    I have no idea who she is or why people spend big money on her. She looks like an emotionally unstable upper-tier streetwalker.

    It could be time to send in the lawyers, depending on the terms of her contract with the casino.

    You and Monet are really hammering Desertrunner. He's nowhere near as INTENSE as he was at PFA. Took him awhile to feel comfortable over here.

    I never heard of her either.
    I probably heard some of her songs inside the Casino and was complaining because she made my ears bleed.

    I probably agree with Desertrunner on many topics but that doesn't hide the fact that Desertrunner = Pussy.

    Ozzy, I was not trying to insult Desertrunner. Here I meant exactly what I wrote - that Desertrunner would make a post on a news blurb like this and that Dan just beat him to it. I suppose it could be incidentally insulting though so I can see why you and other people might have interpreted it as such. Oh and one other thing - who the fuck is Adele ?

    I'll pull a kew on this one.

    Never heard of Adele? Typical of bitter, senile old farts with no hope who never had any enjoyment in life, nor did anything worth a shit.

    Close?

    I don't listen to the radio or watch that type of entertainment stuff much, but even I know who she is.

  18. #18
    I have heard of the name but had no idea how big she is. Pretty funny really. I pretty much checked out of pop culture starting about 20 years ago so I guess it adds up.

    Anyone want to volunteer her biggest hit? I googled it and it wasn't clear as she is not a 1 hit wonder. There must be something I would recognize. I'm familar with most rap/rock in the past 20 years just not her type of music. Mom made me listen to music through earphones so eventually I just gave up on the enjoyment of music because of the bitter resentment.
