Adele definitely got everyone’s attention when she announced that an ongoing illness has “taken a toll” on her voice and she has to postpone her Las Vegas residency.

In a post on Tuesday on X and Instagram, the 35-year-old singer wrote that she loves her fans and will miss them “like mad” as she takes time off to recover after getting sick not once but twice in the last few months.

“Sadly I have to take a beat and pause my Vegas residency,” the superstar singer’s post read. “I was sick at the end of the last leg and all the way through my break.”

“I hadn’t quite gotten the chance to get back to full health before shows resumed and now I’m sick again, and unfortunately it’s all taken a toll on my voice,” she added. “And so on doctors orders I have no choice but to rest thoroughly.”

“The remaining 5 weekends of this leg are being postponed to a later date,” Adele continued. “We are already working out the details and you will be sent the information asap.”

The dates include basically any shows that were planned for the entire month of March as part of her ongoing residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace through June 2024, the Hollywood Reporter noted.

During a show on Saturday, Adele addressed the rasp in her voice and admitted that it sounded something like the villain Ursula from Disney’s “Little Mermaid,” the Daily Mail noted.

“In the middle of last night — I’m sure you can hear it in my talking voice and my singing voice a little bit,” the superstar singer said. “Your girl was tired. I didn’t sleep very well … And Ursula from the ocean has come from my chest tonight. I can’t hit my headnotes properly. I didn’t sleep very well and my chest is on fire … I can tell I’m going to have a coffee in like 10 days, but I’m still here.”

“Straight after this show I am going on voice rest,” she added. “Can you imagine how hard for me not talking for three days is? So I’m going to be in bed coughing my guts up on complete voice rest … And not only is my partner an absolute chatterbox, so is my son. So I am going to have to lock myself in a cupboard or something like that.”

Adele officially kicked off her Vegas residency in November 2022 through March 2023, after team members coming down with COVID-19 and production delays prevented an earlier start date, the outlet noted. She then announced a second leg of the residency at Caesars Palace that ran from June 2023 through November, before the third leg was made official, with dates running from Jan. 2024 through June.
