Insiders are claiming Adele pulled the plug over production disagreements. Performing at Casinos is very alien to the UK singer and Las Vegas is lights and glitz, not the perfect setting for a melancholic newly mum that is focused on hitting the right notes. She isn’t use to performing shows like Bruce Springsteen or Bon Jovi, she was nearly home for 5 years before writing her new album Adele 30. The singer has made no secret of her crippling stage fright, or indeed the fact she hates touring.

She has vomited before going on stage and said she would turn jobs down in case she had an ‘anxiety attack’ and couldn’t go on.

Talking to Q magazine she said: “I will not do festivals. The thought of an audience that big frightens the life out of me. I don’t think the music would work either. It’s all too slow.

“I’d hate to book a festival and have a f***ing anxiety attack and then not go on stage, do you know what I mean?”

She added: “I’d rather do 12 years at the Barfly than one night at the O2.”

Meatloaf dies at 74. He was born as Marvin Lee Aday in Dallas. He had a background in Broadway and produced monster hits like “Bat Out of Hell” and “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”. Who doesn’t know these songs? Regardless of success, he never garnered the respect from critics. Rolling Stone slammed “Bat Out of Hell” which sold 14 million copies in the United States.

Adele has announced the postponement of her Las Vegas residency, just 24 hours before kick off. The UK singer blamed covid for its cancellation.

In a tearful video posted to Instagram, Adele said her team “tried absolutely everything we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and Covid.”

“I’m so sorry but my show ain’t ready,” she said. “Half my crew, half my team is down with Covid. They still are, and it’s been impossible to finish the show. And I can’t give you what I have right now, and I’m gutted.”

The show at Caesars Palace was set to begin Friday and go through April 16.

A young band had their dreams come true when they signed with a major music label. The dream turned nightmarish when the rising emo band was told to write with Nickelback.

“When I finished RIOT! I handed it in to the label, and they didn’t think there was a hit” says David Bendeth who produced the 2007 breakthrough album. “They didn’t hear anything on there. The head of Warner Bros. said we are going to get Chad Kroeger of Nickelback to write Hayley a hit”.

“When I told the band what was happening, they went nuts as you could imagine, because we worked 4 or 5 months on that record, and they were teenagers. You can imagine the outburst they had putting everything in their lives into the record”.

I got back to the label and said look, no offense, but I’m not doing it, and they FLIPPED and said, “You don’t have control of this band, you do what we tell you to do”.

Eventually, the band got their way and released the record they wanted and delivered the radio hit Misery Business that later appeared on Olivia Rodrigo’s album called ‘good 4 u’ but with a slightly different arrangement.

The Chicago-based rapper Lil Durk brought out rising country artist Morgan Wallen during his performance at the annual MLK Freedom Fest held in Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena

“See, you know me, I’m always on some different sh-t,” told audience members. “I want to bring my motherf-cking brother out here–a real one. Genuine with that heart. Can’t nobody cancel sh-t without me saying it?”

Wallen has been censored and dropped by radio and award shows after a video was published showing him using a racial slur after a drunken night out with friends.

Last weekend, Wallen performed at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and was slammed by songwriter Jason Isbell and said “I’m real sad for a lot of my friends today”.

Despite being banned from the country scene, Wallen had the best selling album in 2021.
