Adele ‘pulls out of Brit Awards performance’ after cancelling Las Vegas shows

Adele has reportedly pulled out of her planned performance at the Brit Awards after postponing her Las Vegas residency shows, it has been claimed.

The 33 year old singer reportedly agreed with event organisers she would perform at the event, set to take place at the London O2 Arena.

Singer Adele was said to be set to be announced on the awards show’s lineup of acts that will take to the stage. It would have been her first Brits performance in five years.

But, it has now been claimed she has “pulled the plug” on the upcoming gig and Brits bosses are said to be scrambling to find a replacement act.

A source told The Sun: “Adele was confirmed to perform on the night, but has now pulled out — which has been a massive blow for the organisers.

“They are talking to her team to see if she can appear by videolink.

“It’s a massive headache but they want her involved in any way she will agree.”

The insider added: “They also now have to find someone to accept her awards — should she win.

“And several big names have already said no.

“Names already mentioned include Sam Smith, and even Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa — who are both up against Adele for awards — but they are all looking unlikely. They have also made an approach to Stormzy, in the hope that they can persuade him.”

It’s understood there were fears of a backlash as the source continued: “It seems there were concerns of another backlash if she’d performed on the Brits so soon after calling off her Vegas shows last-minute.

“That decision has understandably caused a great deal of disappointment and, in the wake of that, Adele and her team decided to call off her Brits performance.”

Adele tearfully apologised to fans in a video to announce the decision to not go ahead with the live shows.

In the video posted to her Instagram, Adele explained that staff sickness and delivery delays had caused her decision to postpone the shows.

And now it’s been claimed there are fears the Las Vegas shows may not happen as Caesars Palace and Live Nation negotiate with Adele in a bid to save the show.

TMZ claimed Caesars Palace sources told them they’re “not sure if they can reach an agreement with Adele” due to a “significant conflict” over “numerous issues” with the show.

It’s also been claimed that in the month-long run up to the residency, Adele was reportedly unable to complete a full rehearsal.

While she is also said to have clashed with designer Esmeralda Devlin over the stage production while her team also wanted an overhaul of the sound a video systems provided.

And a source told The Sun: “In spite of the set costing millions to put together, Adele was unhappy with the result, and she made her feelings very clear to Es.

“She was already nervous and the falling-out sent her spiralling into a panic because she was desperate that everything should be perfect.”
