‘I’m so sorry for your loss’: Adele bursts into tears as fan holds up phone to show singer’s photo of deceased wife at Vegas show
Adele burst into tears after witnessing a man desperately trying to show the singer a photo of his late wife on his phone during her Las Vegas show.
The singer, 34, got emotional when she watched the concertgoer hold the phone high above the crowd and touch his heart as she walked through the crowd at her residency show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Jan. 27.
And after seeing the photo up close, Adele tried to continue her performance of Someone Like You, before struggling to hold back tears as she dedicated the tear-jerking ballad to the man.

She began, “When I walk through the crowd, I wish you could see what I can see. Because I know I’m talking to a few people every night, but then all I see is little stories happening from people.’
The overwhelmed singer continued, “There was a guy, he’s just there, he held up his phone. I think that’s his wife on the phone, and I don’t think she’s here, and it really moved me.
“I’m so sorry about your loss, and I didn’t realize what you showed me until I got here.”

She added, “I see these little bits of people’s lives as I walk through them and it’s so beautiful.”
In December, Adele told the crowd she was having therapy “five times a day” when she divorced her husband.
The Hello hitmaker – whose marriage to Simon Konecki ended in 2019 – told fans she’s seeing a counselor again because she stopped ‘holding on’ [herself] responsible” and wanted to be in great shape for her residency after previously finding an outlet to work through her feelings during her relationship troubles, extremely helpful.
She said onstage at her Weekends with Adele show, “I went back to therapy because I had been without for a few years. I had to start.
“Back in the day, of course, when I was going through my divorce, I was basically having five therapy sessions a day.
In tears, “There was a guy, he’s just there, he held up his phone. I think that’s his wife on the phone, and I don’t think she’s here, and it really moved me,” Adele said.
“But I no longer held myself accountable for my own behavior and the things I would say.
“But now I’m doing it because I just want to make sure I’m replenishing myself every week to make sure I can give you my all.”
The star admitted to performing “fills” live [her] with fear’ and although she is not very into touring, she is very happy with the set-up of the residency.
She burst into tears as she added, “And my whole therapy session this week has been really interesting. It was about these shows.
“It always makes me so emotional. I love making music, but there’s something about performing live that really terrifies me and fills me with dread.
“That’s why I’m not a big traveling artist. I did it last time to prove I could.
“But this experience of being in a room this size, I think I could be a live performer for the rest of my life.”
The Easy On Me singer – who has a 10-year-old son Angelo with Simon and is now in a relationship with sports agent Rich Paul – canceled her residency in January just days before opening night, admitting she did so because she was a being a perfectionist. .
