Adele admits she gave up her big-budget Las Vegas residence due to a lack of intimacy

It would mark the next glorious chapter in a story that had already taken a working-class girl from urban London to Los Angeles and fortunes beyond most people’s wildest dreams.

But Adele insists she had no choice but to abandon her hugely lucrative Las Vegas stint – a decision she readily admits was the worst moment of her career – because she lacked the intimacy of her previous shows.

The multimillionaire dismayed fans, many of whom had already paid to see her on stage at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, after canceling her string of performances in a tearful Instagram post just hours before her first performance in January.

Speaking of which, Adele insists she had no choice but to give up her highly lucrative Las Vegas residency, but insists her new series of shows will “tell the story of her career”.

Adele, 34, recalls the moment she pulled the plug during an interview with ELLE and admits the decision was made while conducting a sound check in the cavernous venue while gazing at row upon row of empty seats.

“There just wasn’t a soul in there,” she said. “The stage setup was wrong. It was very detached from me and my band and lacked intimacy. And maybe I was trying too hard to give him those things in such a controlled environment.

She also reportedly had trouble setting up the pool of water she was supposed to stand in, comparing it to an “old pond”.

“Adele described the pool as a ‘baggy old pond’ and flatly refused to stand in the middle,” a source allegedly said.

After leaving Vegas, the singer admitted she was dealing with the consequences of her cancellation, but refused to reverse the decision.

“The first few months were really, really tough,” she said. “But it actually increased my confidence because it was a very brave thing to do.

“And I don’t think many people would have done what I did. I am very proud of myself for standing by my artistic needs.”

She will now be focused on a brand new show, having personally overseen creative direction, with her first priority being to create the intimacy she felt was lacking in her original set.

The star called her revised plans for the 32 concert dates, which run from November 18, 2022 to March 25, 2023, “nostalgic” and insisted they would tell the story of her career.

She said: “I want to tell the story from the beginning of my career to now. I won’t reveal too much about it, but the show is growing.

“It’s all about the music, and it’s really, really nostalgic. It will be so beautiful.’

In January, Adele told fans, many of whom were already in Las Vegas at the time, of various reasons why she was pushing the residency back.

“My show isn’t over yet,” she said. “We’ve tried absolutely everything to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you. But we have been absolutely devastated by delivery delays and COVID.

After the postponed dates for the gig were leaked, the singer took to Instagram to finally confirm the show will start in November and thanked fans for their “patience.”

Insiders at the Caesars Palace camp told TMZ in May that the resort and Live Nation would need to reach a workable agreement with the singer within a month for the show to go ahead.

Adele’s boyfriend Rich Paul, a high-profile sports agent, had apparently entered negotiations over the show, which is said to bring in $150 million.

The sources said Adele had several points of contention about the show, including but not limited to the choir and the sound system.
