According to The Daily Mail, fans shelled out up to $30,000 on tickets to the show and many had already traveled — some even across the world — to attend opening night. So, it makes sense that Adele fans would be unhappy after hearing that the show would not go on. Many of them took to Twitter to air their grievances, citing their disappointment in the last-minute cancellation. Some even posed in front of Caesars Palace, furthering the point that so many fans had already paid for hotels, flights, and took time off of work.
Shortly after Adele’s announcement, Caesars issued a statement of their own, saying, “We understand the disappointment surrounding the postponement … Adele is an incredible artist, supremely dedicated to her music and her fans” (via USA Today). Reacting to the news, one fan who traveled from Mexico City said, “I love Adele. I love all her songs. But I think it’s not a good idea to tell people (of a cancellation) one day out.”
Still, die-hard fans said they understood her need to cancel and will be back when the show is rescheduled. According to USA Today, Eilnee Colbert, who traveled from Atlanta, said, “As much as we hated to see her message, it speaks to who she is as a person … We have the flexibility to pay for another trip, so we will be there.”
