Weekends With Adele at Caesars Palace
Adele is still in the prime of her career and released 30, her fourth studio album, in November 2021. The album has reached #1 on the charts in over 30 countries.
Not surprisingly, a bidding war ensued for the Adele Las Vegas residency. Caesars Entertainment emerged victorious after reportedly offering over $2 million per show. Caesars Palace was also going to house Adele in a penthouse suite that costs $55,000 per night.
No Word on New Show Dates
Weekends with Adele would’ve initially run from January 21 to April 16, 2022. The schedule had her performing two shows each weekend at Caesars Palace Colosseum. Given the postponement, though, the Adele residency in Vegas no longer has an official starting date.
Keith Urban (a.k.a. Nicole Kidman’s husband and country music star) was supposed to begin performing at the Colosseum on May 30. However, he’ll now play additional shows in late March and early April. With a replacement already available, no Adele Las Vegas concert will take place at Caesars at least until the summer—if at all.
What Happened With Adele’s Vegas Residency?
Through a tearful video, Adele said that COVID concerns among her crew members are to blame for the show going off-course. However, the Daily Mirror reported that the singer wasn’t happy with specific design elements.
Sources have since claimed the Easy On Me singer was in disagreement over set design, principally an onstage pool she was required to perform over during one of her numbers, which they claimed was the real reason for her sudden postponement.The Daily Mirror
Set designers intended to use a crane to make it seem like she was floating on water. Adele allegedly described the pool as a “baggy, old pond” and didn’t want any part of it. Disagreements over this setup may have eventually led to the postponement. Other versions cited relationship issues with her partner, Rich Paul, as the culprit for the postponment.
The Colosseum has acts booked throughout much of 2022. Therefore, the Adele Las Vegas event likely won’t happen in 2022. At best, it could take place in 2023 if Caesars and the singer can agree.
