The singer has reportedly dropped her famous set designer Es Devlin from the project. She has been replaced by Kim Gavin, who has worked with the British pop group Take That.
Adele had Cancelled the Residency in January
Originally planned to begin on January 21 this year, the series was canceled by the singer just days before the scheduled premiere date. The Hello singer had posted a video in which she tearfully announced that she had to cancel the show as it was not ready after multiple delays due to the Covid pandemic.
At the time, the 34 year old singer had said, “Listen, I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready. (We) tried absolutely everything we can to put it together in time. Half my team, half my crew are down with COVID and it’s been impossible to finish the show.”
“I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed and I’m so sorry to everyone that’s traveled again. I’m really really sorry,” she had added. Adele also revealed her plans to push the concerts to a later date. She said, “We’re on it, we’re gonna reschedule all of the dates. We’re on it right now and I’m gonna finish my show, we’re gonna get it to where it’s supposed to be now for you.”
The Singer will also Feature in her Documentary
Adele recently made headlines after it was reported that there would be a documentary based on her romance with her new love, Rich Paul. A source revealed, “Adele feels she let fans down somewhat with how the past 12 months have panned out, particularly the last-minute postponement of her Las Vegas residency, and sees (making a documentary) as a way of making up for that.”
The source further said, “One thing is for certain, it will be must-watch TV. Even though everyone knows her name, Adele is still quite mysterious as a person. Her life now compared to when she released her debut album is unrecognizable.”
Adele fans, who were eagerly waiting for her Las Vegas residency, can surely rejoice now. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
