Last Thursday Adele announced via Twitter she would be taking part in a four-month concert residency hosted in Las Vegas. The singer will perform two shows each weekend at the Colosseum of Caesar Palace Hotel for a total of twelve weekends.

“Weekends with Adele” will start Jan. 21 and end April 16. She is set to make around $1 million per show, earning her more per-night revenue than her previous world tours.

This comes after the recent release of her new studio album “30” — Adele’s first album in six years. The album reached the top of The Billboard 200 chart in only three days, registering 185 million streams in its first week and has enjoyed a comfortable stay at the top since.

Adele is not the first artist to hold a residency in Las Vegas — artists like Elton John, Usher and Madonna have resided in Sin City to perform for part of each of their careers.

Tickets to the show will be available on a first-come, first-served basis via Ticketmaster Verified Fan. Registration to purchase tickets opened Nov. 30 and the tickets went on sale Dec. 7 at 12 p.m. CT.

Due to The Colosseum’s limited capacity of 4,100 people, each concert will have a moderate number of attendees compared to her previous venues. With the emergence of yet another COVID-19 variant, many think this decision to perform at more private events is a way for her to continue to perform while avoiding the hassles of traveling in the pandemic.

There will be one breakage in the schedule of the event, with Van Morrison set to perform Feb. 18-19 in 2022.
