Adele Pauses Vegas Concert for Matthew Perry Tribute

Adele Pauses Vegas Concert for Matthew Perry Tribute

In a heartfelt moment during her Las Vegas residency, the iconic singer Adele paid tribute to the late actor Matthew Perry, who passed away recently at the age of 54. The news of Perry’s death had gripped the public’s attention, and Adele, one of Las Vegas’ most successful resident singers, took a moment to honor his memory.

A Dedication in Song

Despite never having met the Friends star in person, Adele dedicated her performance of “When We Were Young” to Matthew Perry and expressed her admiration for his character, Chandler Bing. She described him as “probably the best comedic character of all time,” a sentiment that resonated with the audience at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, the venue for her ongoing Vegas residency.

Chandler Bing’s Enduring Legacy

Adele shared a personal connection to the character Chandler Bing, recalling how a friend named Andrew used to imitate the character when she was 12 years old. Andrew’s impressions of Chandler were a source of laughter and comfort during difficult times. Adele remarked, “He would do it all the time to make us laugh, and if any of us were having a bad day or feeling low, he would just pretend to be Chandler.”

Matthew Perry’s Courageous Battle

Matthew Perry’s passing was a poignant moment for Adele, who commended his bravery in openly addressing his struggles with addiction and sobriety. The 35-year-old superstar, who made her own decision to quit drinking earlier in the year, acknowledged Perry’s honesty about his challenges. Perry had documented his journey in his 2022 memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” revealing a near-death experience at age 49 when his colon burst due to opioid use. This incident led to a prolonged battle for his life, spending five months in a hospital bed and an additional nine months with a colostomy bag.

Adele, while reaching out to her audience with a microphone, expressed her shock at the sudden loss of someone who had brought immense joy and laughter into the lives of many. She sought remembrances from fellow fans, highlighting the impact that Matthew Perry’s work had on those who loved his portrayal of Chandler Bing.
