Adele personally video chatted with fans who showed up to the first night of what would have been her Las Vegas residency show.
The "Easy On Me" singer, 33, was set to launch a residency at the famed Colosseum of Caesars Palace Hotel on Jan. 21, but announced via Twitter on Thursday that the shows would not be taking place just yet.

Videos shared on social media show many would-be concertgoers were handed a cell phone on the casino floor so that the artist could personally apologize to them, often getting teary-eyed as she did so. Variety reports that she offered many fans things like free merchandise, meet-and-greets once her show gets back underway and free drink tickets.

In one of the videos shared on Instagram, Adele chats with a group of four people who came from New York to see her show only to hear days prior that it simply wouldn’t be happening.

"No worries, we love you. You’ve got to do what you’ve got to do and when the time comes we’ll be here cheering you on!" they said.

"Hi guys! I'm so upset to not be with you tonight," read the note. "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. ... (Read more)
