Adele previously discussed the residency postponement during an interview with Graham Norton earlier this year.

The delay was initially blamed on Covid, but Adele appeared to point to creative issues as the reason for the shows’ cancellation.

She said: “I regret to have carried on until this late in the day. It would have been a really half-assed show, and I can’t do that.

“People will see right through me on stage and know I didn’t want to do that.”

She added, “I’ve never done anything like this in my life and I’m not going to start now.”

“We’re working our ass off now, but I don’t want to announce any new dates until I know everything will definitely be ready.

“The sooner I can announce that the better, but I just can’t if we don’t finish on time.”

Adele recently played two major concerts in Hyde Park, which were her first live performances since completing her 25th tour in 2017.

Speaking to Desert Island Discs last month, Adele said she deliberately avoided commenting on the situation.

She said, “Of course, any day I could be someone on TikTok or Instagram Live and say, ‘I’m working on it'”.

“Of course I’m working on it! I won’t update you if I don’t have anything to update you on because that will only lead to more disappointment.”

She added that the “brutal” backlash from the shows’ cancellations made her “a shell of a person.”
