After postponing the shows in January this year, Adele thanked the venue, Caesars Palace, and her fans for “coming back to me,” for her first show on November 18. According to those in the audience, the show reportedly ended in a standing ovation.
“It looks just like I imagined it would,” she told her audience, according to The Guardian.

The Grammy winner sang some of her biggest hits, including Easy on Me, Skyfall, Rolling in the Deep, Rumour Has It, and venturing into the audience while serenading fans with When We Were Young, planting a quick kiss on her boyfriend of over one year, Rich Paul, while fans cheered on.
In a recent interview, Adele admits that she would “absolutely” marry Paul, who is a sports agent, telling Elle that she has “never been in love like this. I’m obsessed with him.”
She confirmed that despite her $US171 million (approx. $253 million) public divorce from Simon Konecki in 2019, with whom she shares their 10-year-old son Angelo, she would not hesitate to marry again.
“I definitely want more kids,” Adele admitted. “I’m a homemaker and I’m a matriarch, and a stable life helps me with my music. But right now, all I got in my brain is [my upcoming Las Vegas residency]. I wanna f—ing nail it.”
She called her last-minute cancellation of her first iteration of the residency “the worst moment in my career, by far
“I was so excited about those shows. It was devastating,” she said.
But she insists it had to be done, even though it was only a day out from her first performance.
“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,” she said.
“I regret that I kept going until that late in the day. It would have been a really half-assed show and I can’t do that… People will see straight through me up on the stage and know I didn’t want to be doing it. I’ve never done anything like that in my life and I’m not going to start now.”
