Go spare him.
Adele defended an enthusiastic young fan during her Weekends With Adele stint in Las Vegas on Saturday, briefly pausing the show to instruct security at Caesars Palace to stop “harassing” him.
In three minutes tick tock Video with more than 2.1 million views posted Sunday captures user Juan P. Lastra standing in front of a mostly seated audience in the Coliseum and at full power singing the song “I Drink Wine” by 16x Grammy winner intones.
But that doesn’t go down well with a concert-goer, a middle-aged woman, who approaches him and asks him to sit down again.
He reluctantly obeys until 35-year-old Adele finishes the song and then says in his direction: “You can get up now, darling.”
As he’s recording, Lastra jumps out of his seat, cheers excitedly, and jumps up and down at his moment of recognition.
A security guard approaches him, apparently trying to get Lastra to calm down.
“I’ll stay calm, I’ll stay calm,” he assures the guard, gasping for air.
Adele then told her band to stop playing “Water Under the Bridge” and asked: “What’s up with that young fan who’s cared so much since I’ve been here? For getting up?”
“Why are you all bothering him? Can you please leave him alone?” Adele asked. “They won’t bother you anymore, darling. you enjoy the show Leave him in peace.”
“Thank you, thank you,” said an emotional Lastra, blowing kisses at the singer amid his confusion.
“Sorry guys,” Adele added. “He was harassed throughout the show by security and other people sitting behind him. He’s here to have fun. You are all here to have fun.”
“Thank you for this amazing night and for standing up for me so I could experience your concert the way it was meant to be,” Lastra wrote in a caption to his TikTok post.
“I’m also sorry I didn’t answer your questions. You started talking to me and I literally stopped breathing,” he revealed.
The Post has reached out to Lastra and Adele for comment.
Earlier this month, a source claimed to The Mirror that the “Rumor Has It” singer “cries before and after” her performances at Caesars Palace due to her emotionally charged performance.
“Adele experiences a range of emotions during her performances that audiences may not be aware of,” the anonymous source told the outlet.
“The size of the show and its success is so impressive that it makes her cry a little before or even after the shows.”
