Adele has shared the purpose for the delay of her Las Vegas residency, uncovering to Elle the few grounds that went into the latest possible moment measure to sever.
“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,” she said in an interview with Emma Carmichael for the magazine. (The interview is titled “The Glorious Age of Adele” at Elle.)
Adele revealed the delay on January 20, just one day before the start date of the alleged residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
She worked with entertainment architecture firm Stufish to upgrade the Vegas stage to fit her vision after the company arranged a sequined backdrop for her performance at the BRIT Awards in February.
In an interview with Elle, the artist said her new stage plan is based in part on the shape of the mantelpiece around the fireplace in her London home.
In July, Adele revealed that her residency program has changed and will start in mid-November, through March 2023.
Adele was spotted on two nights in London’s Hyde Park over the summer. This is her first public appearance since 2017. She released her fourth album, 30, last November, before announcing her Las Vegas residency.
