Adele angered her loyal fans when she canceled her upcoming Las Vegas residency due to COVID cases among her vaccinated crew.
The red-faced singer recorded a video tearfully explaining why she canceled her entire residency, but fans were unsympathetic.
Fans who paid thousands of dollars for tickets lashed out at the British pop star for behaving like a Diva. They say she’s a narcissist who only cares about herself.
Two sisters who found out about the cancellation while on a plane from New York to Las Vegas were left heartbroken and angry, according to DailyMail.com.
Another family who paid half a year’s salary for tickets were waiting to board their plane when they learned of the cancellation.
Thomas Wright and a friend flew from South Carolina to Las Vegas for opening night. They found out the show was canceled when they landed. They are out over $2,500 for tickets, flight and hotel accommodations.
“When you land in Vegas but Adele canceled her shows,” Wright tweeted.
Fans might have gone easy on the emotional pop star, but Adele has a history of disappointing them.
An irate fan tweeted:
“I cannot stand Adele & can’t understand how she still has fans. She let them down in London cancelling last minute & now again. Dos she not realize it’s not just about the tickets; people pay a LOT of money to get to these places [sad emoji]. And that’s without all hr COVID nonsense!”

@Adele you should be reimbursing everybody who paid to go to LV after all you should have said something earlier than you have.

@Adele should ask the venue to set up a piano, a spotlight and a microphone and perform for any audiences members who have already flown into town. So what if it’s not the full show. Something simple would make the memories even more special. Don’t cancel, lean in.

To all those saying, "She could just get a piano and sing," you don't know two shits about the inner workings of a stage production. Take a damn seat. Adele will do more shows when it's safe to do so for all concerned. You sound like a bunch of spoiled brats, "mine, mine, mine."
