Adele Opens Her Long-awaited Las Vegas residency
Adele has finally taken the stage in Vegas.
The Grammy-winning musician began her long-awaited "Weekends With Adele" residency at the Colosseum in Caesars' Palace Friday night, several months after postponing the concert series due to pandemic-related delays. During the emotional night, per The Guardian, the singer called the new production "just perfect."
"Thank you so much for coming back to me," she said to the audience of 4,000 fans. "It looks just like I imagined it would."
For the show, the "Easy On Me" singer chose a custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture gown, designed by Daniel Roseberry. The black silk velvet dress featured an off-the-shoulder neckline, elbow-length sleeves, and a drop waist satin sash that extended down the front of the column skirt. The sash was fastened with a piece of statement jewelry, a large gold buckle adorned with abstract nipples and pavé crystals.
"There was just no soul in it," she said. "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."
"The first couple of months was really, really hard," she added. "I was embarrassed. But it actually made my confidence in myself grow, because it was a very brave thing to do. And I don’t think many people would have done what I did. I’m very proud of myself for standing by my artistic needs."
