Adele opened up about the “worst moment in my career.”
In January, the Grammy winner announced through a tearful video that she would’ve to postpone her Las Vegas residency tour this year. She made the announcement only a day before she was supposed to open at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
In an interview for her cover story in Elle, she revealed, “It was the worst moment in my career, by far. I was so excited about those shows. It was devastating.”
The Rolling in the Deep singer explained that the show didn’t meet her expectations on what she wanted to provide her fans. She said, “There was just no soul in it. The stage setup wasn’t right. It was very disconnected from me and my band, and it lacked intimacy. And maybe I tried too hard to give it those things in such a controlled environment.”
The 34-year-old singer also revealed being emotional following the postponement. She shared, “The first couple of months was really, really hard. I was embarrassed. But it actually made my confidence in myself grow, because it was a very brave thing to do. And I don’t think many people would have done what I did. I’m very proud of myself for standing by my artistic needs.”
Meanwhile, she has already announced the new schedule which will start in November. She said, “I want to tell the story of the beginning of my career to now. I’m not gonna give too much about it, but the show grows. The show grows. It’s all about the music, and it’s really, really nostalgic. It’s gonna be really beautiful… I haven’t got any bullet points, obviously, when I talk. That’s why my shows are so erratic. One time I gave, like, an hour speech about an aquarium!”- Advertisement -
She added, “I think I’m right to do it right now. I know I’m not, like, 60 years old and I haven’t got 20 albums under my belt. But I think my music will work in a show in Vegas.”
Last year, Adele released her album, 30. Her concert in Sin City will be one of the first time that her fans can sing along with her in her songs included in the album. She said, “I haven’t really witnessed  out in the world yet. It’s gonna be so emotional. I don’t know what I’m gonna do with myself.”
