LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- After Adele announced the postponement of her Caesar's Palace residency Thursday, fans shared their disappointment over the last-minute change. 

"I was mid-flight when she canceled," Jana Rhyu, who traveled from Portland to Las Vegas, told 8 News Now. 

Since the news came just about 24 hours before Adele's first performance was scheduled for Friday, Rhyu was just one of many who had to change plans or cut travel losses. 

According to Rhyu, it was too late for her to turn around, so she's still spending the weekend on The Strip. 

"I'm not super happy about it," Rhyu explained. "But is it really that unexpected?"

In an emotional video released to social media Thursday, Adele apologized to fans.

"I'm really, really sorry, I'm really sorry," the singer said. "I'm gutted, I'm so sorry it's so last minute."... Read More
