Adele to ‘lose millions in global sales’ after axed Wembley shows shatters DVD plans!

Adele is reportedly set to ‘lose millions in global sales’ after DVD plans of her final shows at Wembley have been ruined.

Adele’s Wembley Stadium concerts for July 1st and 2nd were axed, the event organisers announced on Saturday morning.

The four shows, two of which Adele performed at, were being filmed for a DVD named ‘Adele Live 2017: The Finale’ – But since the star is unable to perform it means the other two shows will not be recorded.

Now the DVD plans of the finale hang in the balance.

Adele had crew manning 100 cameras around the stadium to film every inch of her finale.

Matt Askem, who has directed a DVD of Take That’s concert, was reportedly hired to take control of Adele’s filming and make the DVD happen, The Sun reports.

Adele’s DVD could have been the most successful concert film recording of all time.

A source told the paper: “The DVD was a huge production and all the plans were in place for it to go ahead. But obviously that extra pressure must have been on her mind as her voice problem developed.

“It’s a big disappointment, but nobody knows at this stage if it will happen again. Of course the DVD would have made millions in global sales.”

Adele plans to reschedule her two missed dates that were due at Wembley this week, fans will be refunded next week.

SongKick who sold tickets for the show emailed Adele fans who had tickets for Saturday and Sunday shows today: “You will be receiving a refund for your ticket(s) and we will follow up by the end of the week to confirm further details on your refund.

“In addition, the event organisers are exploring the options to reschedule and you will be given first access to purchase tickets in the event of any rescheduled dates.

“We understand many of you have travelled from far and wide, and we thank you for your patience and understanding.”

It appears Adele is trying to reschedule the shows, but fans who had tickets for Saturday and Sunday may not get tickets for the new shows.
