SHE has promised she’ll be back on stage as soon as possible, but fans are wondering if Adele’s last-minute decision to pull out of the Las Vegas show was just “not ready”. .
The 33-year-old was left in tears yesterday as she told fans the show’s inability to continue – just a day before opening night – had been “totally destroyed” by delivery delays and coronavirus virus.
In the past, the award-winning singer has made no secret of her crippling stage fright, or the fact that she hates touring.
She previously told how she vomited before going on stage and said she would turn down the job in case she had an ‘anxiety attack’ and couldn’t continue.
In an interview, she said: “I am afraid of the audience. One performance in Amsterdam, I was so nervous that I got out of the emergency exit. I threw up a few times. Once in Brussels, I threw up on someone. I just have to endure it. But I don’t like touring. I suffer from anxiety attacks a lot. “
She continued: “My heart just exploded because I never felt like I was going to deliver. It’s actually getting worse.”
Talking to Q magazine in 2011, she said, “I won’t go to festivals. The thought of such a large audience scares my life. I also don’t think the music will work. It’s all too slow.”
“I hate having to book a festival and get hit with anxiety and then not get on stage, you know what I mean?”
She added: “I’d rather do 12 years at Barfly than one night at O2.”
Sources say Daily mail that recently, the mother of one, was “panic” before she filmed her All-Star Object last October.
One guest told the publication: “She is panicking in the dressing room, and this is for an audience invited as friends. Terrible tension in the air.
“Ben Winston is producing the show and he really looks like he’s about to get sick of the stress of it.”
On the show, she was forced to restart her hit song Easy On Me because she was so stressed out and told viewers that she was having “low self-esteem”.
Taking to Twitter to discuss the reasoning behind Adele’s decision, one wrote: “@Adele is suffering from an anxiety breakdown and neurotic tendencies…. Only 7 have COVID… that’s just an excuse to delay.
Another added: “I suspect that, at some point later on the road, Adele would confess that she had some ‘serious anxiety’ which was then supposed to be superinfection, and now Now the famous cancellation! The woman shrugged. ”
While another speculated: “Her hands were shaking a little, her emotions, her breathing. I understand that feeling. Worry. Panic. Thanks for being real and alive with us @Adele
“We love you. We love you. Take care of you now. When you’re ready, so will you!”
