Adele applauds audience member who heckled Pride Month during her Las Vegas residency – NBC Chicago

Don’t bring your anti-Pride rhetoric to an Adele concert.

The 16-time Grammy winner was quick to silence an audience member at her Las Vegas residency Saturday night when they shouted “Pride sucks!” the first evening of Pride Month.

Adele was on stage speaking to the audience when the heckler interrupted her speech Saturday, according to videos that later circulated on social media.

“Did you come to my fucking show and just say Pride sucks? Are you stupid ? Don’t be so ridiculous,” the singer replied. “If you don’t have anything nice to say, just shut up, okay?”

Saturday was the first day of Pride Month, dedicated to celebrating the LGBTQ community. It is often associated with parades and parties, as well as political rallies and marches to protest ongoing issues of inequity.

The iconic pop-soul singer has had no qualms about addressing public behavior in the past. In July last year, Adele challenged her fans to “throw something” at her while tackling a disturbing trend of fans throwing objects at artists while they perform – hitting them and often hurting them.

“Have you noticed how people forget show etiquette in America? They just throw bullshit on stage. Did you see that?’” she asked the audience while pacing the stage.

Adele also expressed her desire to protect audience members during her shows. In August, she interrupted a show to blame venue security for “disturbing” a fan.

Adele is honored and becomes honest.

“Weekends With Adele,” held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, is the 36-year-old English singer’s first concert residency. It started in November 2022 and is expected to end in November this year.

Earlier this year, Adele postponed a series of residency dates on medical advice due to a recurring health issue, having also delayed the start of the residency to 2022 due to Covid-19 hurdles.
