Adele announces Las Vegas concert residency, Weekends With Adele

Adele has become the latest – and arguably the biggest – artist to announce a Las Vegas concert residency.

Weekends With Adele will take place between 21 January and 16 4 월 2022, with two shows each weekend. Tickets go on general sale on 7 12 월.

The concerts at The Colosseum, Caesars Palace Hotel, come in the wake of her fourth album 30, released earlier this month to general critical acclaim and huge commercial success. It is at No 1 in the UK and US, where it became the year’s biggest-selling album after just three days on sale.

Adele performed two one-off concerts to mark the album’s release, her first shows since June 2017 when she closed her world tour with two nights at Wembley Stadium (two final shows were cancelled due to damaged vocal cords).

Her concert at London’s Palladium, screened on TV, was given five stars in a Guardian review by Rachel Aroesti: “Adele’s singing is incredible … There’s little doubt Adele surpassed whatever expectations anyone might have had of her hosting skills: it’s hard to imagine anybody doing this better.”

The Vegas shows, which diminish the pressures of international touring, are a canny move from an artist who lives primarily in Los Angeles, and the relatively small 4,100-capacity venue will play to her strengths as a between-song conversationalist. Adele told one audience during her previous world tour that “touring isn’t something I’m good at. Applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable. I don’t know if I will ever tour again. The only reason I’ve toured is you. I’m not sure if touring is my bag.”

She becomes the latest star to take on a Vegas residency, with Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Céline Dion, Britney Spears and Elton John all securing lucrative concert deals in the city in recent years.

Tickets for Weekends With Adele will first be available via a presale to registered fans, who must sign up by Friday. Ominously, Ticketmaster states: “If demand from Verified Fans exceeds supply there will not be a Public Onsale.”
