Adele states that she has "never been more nervous before a gig" as she begins her delayed Las Vegas concerts on Friday, 10 months after abruptly postponing them.
The "Hello" and "Easy On Me" chart-topper faced internet anger in January when in a sad video she apologized to fans for being unable to perform her "Weekends with Adele" engagement at Caesars Palace hotel because half of her crew had COVID-19 and the epidemic had caused delivery delays.
She stated that her staff "tried everything," but it was impossible to complete the show. The concerts were scheduled to begin the following day, and several fans were en route to Nevada when they received the news.
Thursday night, the singer-songwriter posted an Instagram snapshot of herself in practice against a background of childhood memories.
"I'm really emotional, extremely frightened, and unable to sit still because I'm so happy... I always get nervous before performances, which I see as a good indication because it implies I care and want to do a good job "She authored the text.
"Perhaps it's because I didn't begin when I should have. Maybe it's because it's opening night, maybe it's because Hyde Park went so well, or maybe it's because I adore the show; I'm not sure. It's safe to say that I've never been more anxious before a show in my career, but I wish it were tomorrow! I cannot wait to meet you outside."
Last summer, the 34-year-old British musician performed two concerts in Hyde Park, London. Her Las Vegas performances run through March.
Adele addressed the postponement in a July radio interview, stating that she "certainly felt everyone's disappointment" and was "devastated."
She added, "I believed I could pull things together and make it work, but I was unable to do so, and I stand by my decision."
Adele, famed for ballads about love and nostalgia, made her musical comeback with her fourth studio album "30," which climbed to the top of the charts worldwide, in 2013. It is nominated for the Grammy Award for album of the year in 2023.
