Want to see Adele in concert but can't travel to Las Vegas?
During the British superstar's Weekends with Adele residency performance at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Jan. 27, she expressed the desire to go on a proper tour — whenever her next album is released.
"I just don’t think I’m gonna write an album for quite some time, but next time I do, I’ll come to wherever it is you live," said the Grammy winner on stage, according to fan-filmed footage on social media.
Weekends with Adele launched Nov. 18, 2022, and the residency is currently scheduled to end on June 15 with its 100th performance. "I'm gonna miss this so much. I really, really do love this show," continued the "Someone Like You" singer-songwriter, 35.
Adele announced the final dates of her Las Vegas run in October and told fans in a social media post at the time, "This residency, these shows have changed my life."
"I desperately needed to fall back in love with performing live again, and I have," she wrote. "I needed to reconnect with my songs and remember what they mean to me, and I have!"
The powerhouse vocalist added, "Being on stage over the last year so up close and personal with an audience again after all these years has been a truly extraordinary restorative experience that I’ll never forget. All the hilarious, soulful, wild and heartbreaking interactions we’ve had are banked in my mind for life."
"It’s crazy how joyful a show full of sad songs can be!! I’ve felt so much and learned so much about myself and you. It’s humanized everything I thought was scary," continued Adele.
She said, "Mostly though - it’s just made me realize how much I really enjoy being on stage, that I’m bloody good at it and that it is 100% where I belong!"
Throughout her career, Adele's publicly expressed her complicated feelings toward touring. Toward the end of her most recent tour in 2017, held in support of her 25 album, she spoke about why she doesn't like being on the road in a social media post.
"Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn’t suit me particularly well," she wrote at the time. "I’m a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I’m dramatic and have a terrible history of touring. Until now that is! I’ve done 119 shows and these last four will take me up to 123, it has been hard out an absolute thrill and pleasure to have done."
Adele added, "I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favourite artist have had on me live. And I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home. Thank you for coming, for all of your ridiculous love and kindness. I will remember all of this for the rest of my life. Love you. Goodnight for now."
