"Fans have expressed their fury on social media after Adele cancelled two London concerts at the last minute, costing many people hundreds of pounds.
Some fans have said that she `has zero work ethic` and that it was greedy booking the extra dates if actually performing at them was beyond her capability. On Friday, the `heartbroken` 29-year-old singer said in an emotional post that she was forced to cancel the gigs this weekend.
I usually have the radio playing in the background when I`m writing my essays, but when an Adele song comes on, I stop typing and listen. Adele isn`t background music, she`s not ambient noise, her voice speaks to my heart and my soul and it demands my undivided attention.
I`ve written about a dozen articles in praise of Adele, but this time I must rebuke her in no uncertain terms. Adele may be a singer supreme, a national treasure and a diva, but she`s not exempt from abiding by the show biz maxim that the show must go on. I don`t care what vocal issues she may be suffering from, shame on her for canceling her gigs. Even if she suffered a stroke on stage, as long as her vocal chords weren`t paralyzed, I would expect her to finish her performance.
In the tour program that every concertgoer received Adele included this note:
Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn`t suit me particularly well. I`m a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I`m dramatic and have a terrible history of touring. I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favorite artists have had on me live."
Adele, please stop being such a drama queen, you shouldn`t have disappointed your loyal fans. You should have performed at every stop on your tour, and your fans would have understood if you gave up touring after the completion of your concert tour.
Adele you have shamed the United Kingdom and the show business profession, may the Almighty have mercy on your soul.
