With the release of her new album, 30, having debuted at the top of the charts in 30 countries—her fourth studio album, 30 is her third #1 album, following 25 (2015) and 21 (2011)—the time was right for Adele to make the legions of Daydreamers positively giddy, and announce her first ever Las Vegas residency, WEEKENDS WITH ADELE; wherein everyone’s favorite mono-monikered British songbird will perform every Friday and Saturday—from January 21-April 16, 2022—in the iconic Colosseum at Caesars Palace. * **
Whether you consider her the Queen of Hearts (as she’s been called by both Vogue and Vanity Fair) or the reigning Queen of Soul (the late Aretha Franklin’s cover of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” is a personal fave), there is no question that Adele is one of the most admired artists of today. So, it should come as no surprise that when she posted “See you at Caesars in Vegasss ✨” to her 46.6 million Instagram followers, this morning, it set the world atwitter (receiving more than 3 million likes, in 8 hours).
Fans are able to register for pre-sale tickets for WEEKENDS WITH ADELE through the Ticketmaster Verified Fan program, between 6pm on Tuesday, November 30 and 11:59pm on Thursday, December 02. The Verified Fan presale will begin at 10am PST on December 07, and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, only to those previously registered who have received a unique code. ***
Adele has received more accolades and honorifics than you could fit in three articles, but some highlights include fifteen GRAMMY Awards (from eighteen nominations); nine BRIT Awards (from fourteen nominations); being named Billboard’s ‘Artist of the Year’ three times (in 2011, 2012, and 2016); being twice named ‘Songwriter of the Year’ at the Ivor Novello Awards by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers, and Authors (in 2012 and 2016); being ranked #5 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music (in 2012); and being named one of Time’s ‘Most Influential People’ (in 2012 and 2016). Her first three albums have sold more than 120 million copies, worldwide; and her third tour, Adele Live 2016 (in support of her third album, 25) broke attendance records in the US, UK, and Australia.

First coined by members of the fan forum to refer to Adele’s fans on Adele.com, the term was later expanded to incorporate all of Adele’s fandom; and has begun officially being used by the artist, herself, when referring to her fans // ** Except for Friday, February 18 and Saturday, February 19 // *** While registering with Ticketmaster Verified Fan doesn’t guarantee that you will get a ticket, by ensuring that only other fans are competing for tickets, it makes the ticket buying experience significantly fairer.
