Show will absolutely happen this year: Adele

London: Grammy winner Adele has clarified the status of her Las Vegas residency show and confirmed it would “absolutely” be rescheduled for later this year. Appearing on “The Graham Norton Show” on Friday, the English pop star opened up on her decision to postpone and promised her fans that the shows would “absolutely” happen. “We are now working our asses off, but I don’t want to announce a new set of dates until I know everything will definitely be ready,” she said. “The sooner I can announce the better, but I just can’t in case we are not ready in time. “It is absolutely 100 per cent happening this year. It has to happen this year because I’ve got plans for next year. “Imagine if I have to cancel because I am having a baby!” dropping an unexpected hint of things in store. The singer also went on to express her guilt over not being able to launch the show as expected, telling Norton, “I tried my hardest and really thought I would be able to pull something together in time.” When Adele announced the Vegas postponement on social media she nearly had a breakdown. The postponement was announced on January 20. A few hours before the first show, after hundreds of fans had travelled to the city for the show, a tearful Adele cancelled the program as Covid-19 hit her team. “I regret that I kept going until that late in the day. It would have been a really half-assed show and I can’t do that,” she said. “People will see straight through me up on the stage and know I didn’t want to be doing it. I’ve never done anything like that in my life and I’m not going to start now.” On the British comedy talk show, the singer also addressed the ongoing rumours around her potential engagement to sports agent Rich Paul, who she officially announced she was dating via an Instagram post in September 2021. Norton sought clarification on whether the ring, as seen on her hand at the February 8 Brit Awards, was an engagement diamond. “If I was, would I ever tell anyone if I was or wasn’t?” she replied. Opening up on her plans post-residency, the singer said that she’ll be trying to take a different approach than she has in the past following tours, ensuring she doesn’t completely disappear from public life. She also said she may keep less of a low profile after the cycle for her “30” album is finished. “I definitely will (take some time off) but I am trying to make a conscious effort ..,” she said on her privacy attempts. “I’m trying not to be two completely different versions of myself. It is exhausting switching on and off. I will be disappearing in terms of my music, but you might see a glimpse of me now and then and I won’t be in complete hiding.”
