(2016–17)

Weekends with Adele is the first residency show by Adele in support of her fourth studio album, 30. The residency is slated to begin on January 21, 2022 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will continue through April 16, with Adele performing two shows each weekend.

The shows will be the first opportunity fans have had to see Adele perform live since her 2016–17 world tour for her third studio album, 25.

Background[]

In the program for Adele’s 2016–2017 world tour finale at Wembley Stadium, Adele revealed that she may never tour again.[1] 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.[2] Her agent Lucy Dickins later released a statement to Music Week, reassuring reporters that Adele’s statement on her touring future was not definitive.[3]

In July 2021, it was rumored that Adele had been eyeing a Las Vegas residency to promote her forthcoming studio album.[4] 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.[5] 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.”[6]

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.[7][8] Adele officially confirmed her Las Vegas residency on November 30, shortly after the release of her fourth studio album, 30.[9] Due to the limited ticket quantity, Ticketmaster announced that no tickets would be available to the general public if the presale demand exceeded supply.[10]

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.[11] 102,000 tickets were available, all of which sold out shortly after the presale went live.[12] Billboard estimated that Adele earned more than $50 million in ticket sales, averaging more than $2 million per show.[13]
