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.”
