The internet is abuzz with controversy surrounding Adele’s recent Las Vegas residency. During her “Weekends With Adele” show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, the music icon stopped her performance to defend a fan who was repeatedly asked to sit down by security.
“Why are you bothering that young fan who’s been standing? Can you leave him alone, please?” Adele questioned the security guard from the stage, addressing the situation. The incident garnered widespread attention due to the fan, Juanpa Lastra, recording the show with a 360-degree camera, capturing the encounters with security prior to Adele’s intervention.

After the show, Lastra shared the footage on his TikTok account. Despite facing criticism from others in his section, he expressed no remorse, stating, “I only had one opportunity to see her and I took it. They could’ve stood up too.”
Debate Ignited Worldwide
This incident has sparked a heated discussion as it raises questions about audience behavior at Las Vegas residencies and concerts in general. When does personal enjoyment infringe on the rights of others? And does the high cost of tickets justify certain behavior?
A Twitter survey conducted by Casino.org‘s Vital Vegas blogger Scott Roeben revealed that 57.5% of respondents out of 4,181 individuals would choose to stand at an Adele concert, while only 25.5% would prefer to sit, and 17% had no opinion.
While the majority opinion supports Lastra’s actions, some, like Twitter user @VHbicycles, emphasize the importance of common courtesy and respecting assigned seating: “Read the room, people.”
Share your thoughts in the comments – were you annoyed by Lastra’s behavior?
