Adele FaceTimes superfan whose gig fate went viral
Adele makes time for a super fan to show how much she cares.
On Saturday, “Oh My God” artist FaceTimed Eleni Sabracos, a longtime supporter who posted a viral video from Las Vegas on Friday lamenting various failed attempts to see the Grammy winner in concert. The video has racked up 9.5 million views on TikTok after Adele postponed her residency in Las Vegas the day before the scheduled opening.
“I bought tickets to her show in London, and I flew to London…and she canceled her show,” said Sabracos, who has tried and failed to attend an Adele concert since she was a teenager.
“Flash forward to 2022: My brother surprised me with Adele tickets for his Vegas residency. I’m in Las Vegas right now, and Adele canceled her show. Again! Why!”
Sabracos even made a custom t-shirt that says, “I love Adele like Adele loves Beyoncé,” which she wore when Adele FaceTimed sound this weekend in Las Vegas with some much-needed good news.
“I will cover all your expenses [for the show]the “Easy On Me” hitmaker told her. “I’ll bring you in, and you’ll see me on stage, and I’ll come see you.”
After at least three thwarted efforts to see Adele live – including one involving a sketchy purchase of Craigslist tickets, which she admits “was her own doing” – Sabracos now has a personal date with Adele.
The singer kept busy on the phone over the weekend, connecting with more fans in Las Vegas via FaceTime, even calling to surprise some in a pop-up store at Caesar’s Palace.
The wellness swap came days after a ‘gutted’ Adele tearfully announced she had no choice but to delay her Vegas residency, citing delivery issues and the coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19. The show, “Weekends With Adele,” was originally scheduled to run on Fridays and Saturdays at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace until April 16.
“I’m so sorry, but my show is not ready,” she said in a video message.
“We tried absolutely everything we could to get it in place in time. …Half my crew, half my team is down with COVID. They always are. And it was impossible to finish the show. And I can’t give you what I have right now… I’m sorry, it’s last minute.
Disappointed fans, such as Sabracos, had booked flights to Sin City and paid thousands of dollars for tickets to the sold-out concert series. The beloved singer promised that “all dates will be rescheduled”.
“We’ve been awake for over 30 hours trying to figure it out and we’re out of time,” Adele added in her post.
“I’m so upset, and I’m really embarrassed and I’m really sorry for everyone who has traveled to get here. I’m really, really sorry.
