Adele adds two New Years Eve weekend residency shows

Shows take place at Caesars Palace

Adele adds two New Year’s Eve weekend shows to her Weekends With Adele residency on Friday December 30th, and Saturday, December 31st.

“New Years Eve has always been a let down for me, I seem to always end up spending it in a car on my way to or from somewhere! But not this year!! I’ll be ringing 2023 in on stage!!” she shares announcing the new dates.

The global superstar’s highly anticipated Weekends With Adele residency kicked off Friday night (Nov 18th) at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace. Adele delivered a triumphant performance and was ecstatic to be back on stage performing for US fans for the first time in over five years.

“I’m so nervous and I’m so scared and I’m so happy,” the pop star exclaimed to the sold out crowd.

Presale tickets for the NYE shows will be available through registration using Ticketmaster Verified Fan. Registration is open through 11:59 pm PT on Monday, November 21st. The Verified Fan Presale will begin at 10 am PT on Wednesday, November 23rd. Only fans that have received a unique code will have the chance to purchase tickets for performances on a first come, first served basis.

Weekends With Adele will now play for 34 dates on Fridays and Saturdays through March 25th, including a performance on Christmas Eve.

In January, Adele was scheduled to kick off her Weekends With Adele Vegas residency, but indefinitely postponed the entire 24 run engagement the day before it was to begin. She cited COVID and supply chain issues for her reasoning, but it was later revealed it was canceled due to creative issues.

“It was the worst moment in my career, by far,” she tells Elle of the tough decision. “By far. I was so excited about those shows. It was devastating. There was just no soul in it. The stage setup wasn’t right. It was very disconnected from me and my band, and it lacked intimacy. And maybe I tried too hard to give it those things in such a controlled environment.”

Adele has since teamed with the British firm Stufish — which are the production designers behind the Rolling Stones 60th anniversary tour — along with director Matt Askerm and creative director Kim Gavin for a stage redesign. She says the company was on board after she drew inspiration from her son Angelo’s fifth birthday party and submitted a stage design she hand drew based on her fireplace.
