Weekends with Adele — Rescheduled Poster

Weekends with Adele is the first residency show by Adele in support of her fourth studio album, 30. The residency was slated to take place from January–April of 2022 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, but was postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and delivery delays.[1] The residency officially began on November 18, 2022 and will run through March 25, 2023, with Adele performing two shows each weekend consecutively with a three-weekend holiday break.

In March 2023, Adele announced the residency would be extended, with an additional 34 shows running from June through November of the same year; a concert film, which would be recorded during the newly announced dates, was also confirmed to be in the works.[2]

Background[]

In the program for Adele’s 2016–17 world tour finale at Wembley Stadium, Adele revealed that she may never tour again.[3] She initially had four concerts planned at the venue, which were rumored to be used for a tour DVD, but the final two performances were cancelled after Adele suffered damage to her vocal cords.[4] Her agent Lucy Dickins later released a statement to Music Week, reassuring reporters that Adele’s statement on her touring future was not definitive.[5]

In July 2021, it was rumored that Adele had been eyeing a Las Vegas residency to promote her forthcoming studio album.[6] Adele announced her return to music in October with the release of “Easy On Me,” the lead single from her long-awaited fourth studio album. The same day, Billboard exclusively reported that Adele was finalizing plans for a Las Vegas residency at either the Park Theater at the Park MGM or The Colosseum at Caesars Palace; the publication also noted that Adele’s team had not yet placed holds on any arenas or stadiums in North America for a potential tour.[7] Adele denied the report in an interview with Rolling Stone, claiming “there’s nothing fucking available” and citing concerns over the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “It’s too unpredictable, with all the rules and stuff,” she said. “I don’t want anyone coming to my show scared. And I don’t want to get Covid, either.”[8]

On October 26, 2021, Adele announced she would play two concerts at British Summer Time Hyde Park in London on July 1 and 2, 2022, further prompting speculation that a Vegas residency could be in the works.[9][10] Adele officially confirmed her Las Vegas residency on November 30, shortly after the release of her fourth studio album, 30.[11] Due to the limited ticket quantity, Ticketmaster announced that no tickets would be available to the general public if the presale demand exceeded supply.[12]

The Ticketmaster Verified Fan presale for the residency was slated to open on Tuesday, December 7, but was delayed until December 8 following an Amazon Web Services outage that impacted numerous websites, including Ticketmaster.[13] 102,000 tickets were available, all of which sold out shortly after the presale went live.[14] Billboard estimated that Adele earned more than $50 million in ticket sales, averaging more than $2 million per show.[15]

Weekends with Adele

On January 20 — one day prior to the residency’s opening night — Adele posted a video on social media announcing that Weekends with Adele would be postponed, citing delivery delays and several positive COVID cases within her team.[1] She later told Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs that the backlash from the postponement of her Vegas concerts left her feeling like “a shell of a person.”[16]

I was frightened about letting them down. I thought I could pull it together and make it work, and I couldn’t. And I stand by that decision. I don’t think any other artist would have done what I did and that’s why it was such a massive story. You can’t buy me, you can’t buy me for nothing. I’m not going to just do a show because I have to or because people are going to be let down or because we’re going to lose loads of money. I’m like, ‘The show’s not good enough.’[17]

During her performance at Hyde Park on July 1, Adele confirmed that she and her team were awaiting one final piece of equipment for her Vegas residency before announcing the rescheduled dates.[18] On July 25, she officially announced the new dates for the residency, which ran November 2022 through March 2023 and included eight additional concerts.[19][20] Two New Year’s Eve weekend shows were later announced, taking place December 30–31, 2022.[21]

Extension[]

In March 2023, it was announced Adele would perform 34 additional shows from June to November of the same year. In addition, a planned concert film was announced, with filming set to take place during the newly-announced dates.[22] “Playing to 4,000 people for 34 dates is not enough, and I know that,” Adele said. “So I am coming back for a few weeks in June, and I’m going to release it to make sure anyone who wants to see this show can see it.”[2]

Tickets to the new residency dates went on sale in April 2023 as part of Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan Presale. A public on-sale was expected to follow in the days after, but tickets sold out immediately and the general on-sale was cancelled.[23]
