Adele has sent shockwaves around the entertainment world after she cancelled her Las Vegas residency only 24 hours before its opening night.
In a tearful video statement on Instagram, she said: "I'm so sorry, but my show ain't ready.
"Half my team have Covid and it's been impossible to finish the show," she sobbed, adding that her best-laid plans had been left in tatters by "delivery delays".
The show was supposed to run for 24 nights at the Caesars Palace's Colosseum.
She said: "I'm sorry, it's last minute. I'm so upset and I'm really embarrassed and I'm so sorry to everyone that's travelled again.
"We're going to reschedule all the dates, we're on it right now. And I'm going to finish my show."
But despite the promise of a re-do, fans are still likely to be disappointed after reportedly paying anywhere between £60 and £500 for a ticket.
With such huge amounts of cash per ticket, a 4,200 capacity venue and so many nights scheduled, the amount of money the show stood to make was likely to be nothing less than eye-watering. Read on for the latest on how much she was due to get paid and what he net worth is.

The string of weekend shows, which were planned to run until April 16, 2022, were thought to be set to earn the Londoner around £500,000 a night.
Speaking to the Sun prior to the devastating cancellation, a source said: “Adele is the hottest ticket in Las Vegas right now and she’s raking in a pretty penny from it.
“She is expected to make over £500,000 per gig thanks to ticket sales alone, even before the merchandising. Caesars has rolled out the red carpet to ensure she’s treated like the superstar she is.”
The paper also sensationally claim that some tickets were going for between £700 and £9,000 each.
On some resale sites, tickets for a night at the show were going for as much as £22,000, it was reported by the Independent.
