Grammy Award-winning singer Adele has announced an exclusive residency at the Colosseum of Caesars Palace Hotel in Las Vegas, which will begin on Friday, January 21, 2022.

According to Variety.com, Adele will perform two concerts each weekend until Saturday, April 16, 2022, for a total of 12 weeks.

The long-awaited news follows Adele’s fourth studio album, “30”, on Columbia Records, which ranked No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week with by far the highest sales of the first year. week, about 839,000 units.

It debuted at No. 1 on the album charts in 30 countries and is already one of the best-selling albums of the year; it overtook Taylor Swift’s “Evermore”, which had sold 462,000 copies in 11 months, to become the best-selling album of the year in just three days.

Adele’s notoriously chatty concerts, which find her majestic and often sad songs in conflict with her scorching humor and witty, self-deprecating conversation, take place in the Colosseum, which has an official capacity of 4,100 people.

With the exception of February 18 and 19, when Van Morrison, who spoke out against the Covid-19 vaccination, performs in the arena, Adele’s concerts are spread over several weekends.

Caesars Palace does not appear to have any vaccination requirements for these or any other shows.

The residency concerts in Las Vegas are the only concert dates Adele has announced in the ’30’ promotion so far, as well as two dates at Hyde Park in London next summer and her recent shoot. special “One Night Only” at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

These appear to be a method for her to perform live while avoiding the risks and complexity of touring amid the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak, which has seen many musicians including Jon Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams , be tested positive with the virus on the road.

Avoid the dangers of the scene. Residencies for popular recording artists in Las Vegas are often extended beyond their original terms, although no details of Adele’s extension were immediately available. Celine Dion has given nearly a thousand shows in Las Vegas during long-term residences.
