Adele Kicks Off "Weekends With Adele" Las Vegas Residency

Adele kicked off her long-awaited Las Vegas residency “Weekends with Adele” on November 18, 2022. The long awaited Friday and Saturday shows are backed by a six-piece band, three backup singers and a 24-piece string section. With a mixture of her powerful voice and natural charm, Adele takes her place among Vegas’s pantheon of divas.

Obviously the big singles were there, the show understandably kicks off with “Hello” and goes on to include “Easy on Me,” “Someone Like You” and “Skyfall” to name just a few. She also brings back some older tunes like “Turning Tables,” “Rumor Has It” and “Send My Love (To Your New Lover).” The setlist spans her entire career but focuses heavily on 21, her record-setting 2011 album.

Even though Adele’s voice would be enough to carry a show on her own, it’s bolstered by Vegas-worthy production. Huge video screens project images throughout the set. There’s rain during “Set Fire to the Rain” but at the same time the stage and the piano on it catch fire. Adele wanders through the crowd and mingles while performing “When We Were Young.” And confetti drops from the ceiling three times, including a rain of Polaroid photos. Two of these showers happen in the closing songs, “Rolling in the Deep” and “Love is a Game.”
