Weekend concerts are July 1-2 in London
Adele has announced an all-female lineup for what appears to be her only shows of 2022. The pop star is set to headline BST Hyde Park in London on July 1st and 2nd, and is bringing Kacey Musgraves, Gabrilelle, Mahalia, Self Esteem and others with her.
“The line up for my Hyde Park shows next week is going to blow your socks off!!” Adele shares in an Instagram post. “An all female bill, from new artists that I’m obsessed with to the heavenly Kacey Musgraves to one of my favorite artists of all time Gabrielle who I’ve loved since I was 4!! It’s going to be incredible, there’s a whole host of us performing all day, I can’t wait to share the main stage with you ladies.”
The shows, sponsored by American Express, will be Adele’s first UK live shows since 2017.
In January, Adele was supposed to kick off her Weekends With Adele Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, 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.
At the time, the pop superstar was eyeing for a late July or early August start that would run through the end of the year. In April, it was reported that she was “finalizing a deal” to move the residency to The Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood where she would nearly double the audience size and have full creative control.
However, six months after the shows were canceled, there’s still no new information as to when the ill-fated residency could begin or where it could play. The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that Colosseum staffers were told they’d be furloughed from mid-July through September as the venue goes dark for the summer after Morrissey ends his run July 9th.
Rod Stewart is set to resume his residency on September 23rd and dates are open for November and December. Weekends with Adele has not been formally canceled and her image is still plastered at Caesars Palace.
