Adele has left a message for disappointed fans who turned up to her cancelled Vegas shows after she was forced to pull out of the concert residency a day before the first show at Caesars Palace.

Last week a tearful Adele posted a video on social media apologising for having to postpone the planned shows.

"Half my team have Covid, and it's been impossible to finish the show," she said, adding that she was awake for 30 hours working on the shows but had simply "run out of time."

"I can't give you what I have right now, and I'm gutted." she said.

Now the singer has left a message for fans who turned up at the venue in a note written in lipstick, situated in the merchandise store.

"Hi guys! I'm so upset to not be with you tonight," it said. "But I know some of you are here already so please hang out and look at the outfits, take pics of anything you want.

"Of yourselves and with each other! There's people in the room I worked with on the store and the merch. There's members of my management in here too to show you around. And any of you in here who were due to come to the shows this weekend can have a gift on me! I'm so sorry again."

Caesars Palace also released a statement following the postponement of shows.

"We understand the disappointment surrounding the postponement of WEEKENDS WITH ADELE," it read.

"Adele is an incredible artist, supremely dedicated to her music and her fans. Creating a show of this magnitude is incredibly complex. We fully support Adele and are confident the show she unveils at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace will be extraordinary."
