Popular singer Adele has two and a half months of her Las Vegas residency to go. However, the reports suggest she’s running out of fans who want to see her perform there.
Adele struggling with ticket sales
The 34-year-old singer has been belting out her hits in Sin City since mid November as part of her Weekends with Adele residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
She is due to continue her gigs until 25 March this year – and it was noted that tickets had been costing a pretty penny at cost but skyrocketed to £40,000 on ticket resale sites after the shows sold out.
But now the resale ticket prices have crashed by a huge 90% – bringing the cost down to a still eye watering £3,450 per seat. However, The Sun on Sunday claims that insiders from the Colosseum have confided that some shows are failing to attract a full audience.
They claim that “seat fillers” are being used to beef up the crowd appearance and to hide the un-sold seats – with the possibility for some fans to nab last minute tickets for just a hundred dollars or so.
Adele was paid up-front for her 34 show run – and is believed to be worth £200 million herself.
It is noted that last month there was some surprise and anger from fans when it was revealed ultimate VIP tickets to her show were being sold for a “sickening” £4 million as part of a Las Vegas Grand Prix package deal.
Social media was awash with outraged fans who took offence to the ‘Emperor Package’ that includes 12 tickets to the Formula 1 – but only two tickets to see Adele – along with 12 Paddock Club tickets, five nights at the Nobu Sky Villa hotel, a private dinner with Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, and a 24-hour butler.
