Adele is in talks for a residency in Las Vegas, and will soon make a decision on a venue, according to reports.
The singer is currently building up to the release of her much-anticipated comeback single ‘Easy On Me’. A new album, believed to be titled ’30’, is heavily rumoured to follow.
Now, sources have told Billboard that Adele is currently choosing between either the Park Theater at the Park MGM Las Vegas or the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Both venues are owned by Live Nation, and both have gaps in their schedules for 2022 in which Adele could perform. The Park Theater is the bigger of the two venues, with a capacity of 6,400 compared to the Colosseum’s 4,100.
Although the deal is not yet finalised, sources say it has been in place for a number of weeks. It is believed that the shows would encompass all of Adele’s North American live plans next year. Her team has not placed ‘holds’ – the system bookers use to reserve a space on a venue’s live schedule – on any other arenas.
Sources told Billboard that Adele “likes the idea of having her fans travel to see her in Vegas, where she can keep an apartment, avoid being away from her 8-year-old son for long stretches of time, and easily shuttle back and forth from her home in Los Angeles.”
Adele teased new single ‘Easy On Me’ yesterday (October 5), which will be her first new material since the release of her third album ’25’ in 2015. In a black and white clip shared across social media, she is seen putting a cassette into a car stereo and driving to a gentle piano track.
Speculation of a new LP began after billboards with the number ’30’ sprung up in cities such as Dublin, London, Rome, Paris and New York last week, sending fans into a frenzy.
While little is known about the singer’s fourth album, fans believe its name will follow in the footsteps of her 2015 album ’25’, denoting the age she started writing the record.
Now 33, her newest release suggests that she started working on the album in the second half of 2018 or early 2019.
