Adele issued a tearful apology to her fans on Thursday after she announced she had been forced to reschedule her highly-anticipated Las Vegas residency, and now the singer is doing the FaceTime call with some of her die-hard fans who were in the city for the show.

Adele stunned fans who were disappointed after the show was abruptly cancelled and personally apologised to them via video call.

''On the casino floor Friday night, some disappointed ticketholders were being handed a phone, apparently by someone from Adele’s management team, to have FaceTime chats with the singer, individually or in groups,'' Variety reported.

Another fan named Dominic Crisonino, who flew into Las Vegas from New York, also shared a video of his FaceTime chat with Adele.  Sharing the same on his Instagram, he captioned the video as, "I literally was just on FaceTime with @adele!! WHAT IS LIFE."

Earlier, Adele announced that she's pushing her residency in an emotional video posted to Instagram Thursday.  


"Hi, listen I'm so sorry but my show ain't ready. We tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you but we've been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID. Half my crew, half my team are down with COVID — they still are," Adele said.
