Adele has “fired” her whole creative team and is starting over in a last-ditch attempt to save her Las Vegas residency, which she unexpectedly cancelled at the last minute.
Esmeralda Devlin, the set designer with whom the Rolling In The Deep singer allegedly battled, has also left the company.
All indications point to the residency taking place sooner rather than later. Adele has already assembled a new crew.
She’s making sure nothing goes wrong this time. According to rumours, Adele is calling in the heavy guns by replacing her old creative team with members of the boy band Take That. Kim Gavin and Stufish will take over for Devlin, who designed Adele’s sets for her 121-city tour in 2016.
Both have successful careers in the music business.
Since 1992, Kim has served as the artistic director for all of Take That’s shows. Stufish is in charge of the Rolling Stones’ 60th anniversary tour’s production design. “Everything from the Es show has been scrapped,” they say, so they’ll collaborate to “create a new show.”
Adele announced to her fans on January 20 that she was cancelling her gig at Caesars Palace, which was supposed to begin the next day. The Grammy winner screamed COVID, alleging that the virus had infected the majority of her staff and that it was “impossible to finish the show.”
Radar, on the other hand, discovered that there was a lot more drama behind her decision.
