Adele announces 2022 Las Vegas residency

Adele has announced her first-ever Las Vegas residency, slated to begin in January 2022.

The star, who is represented by Lucy Dickins and Kirk Sommer at WME, will perform on Friday and Saturday nights in the Colosseum theatre (cap. 4,300) at Caesars Palace Hotel from 21 January until 16 April 2022.

The concerts, dubbed Weekends With Adele, are promoted by Live Nation Las Vegas, which recently promoted Amanda Moore to lead the residency business.

Fans will have to register for pre-sale access before 3 December to be in with a chance of securing tickets for the residency. Tickets will then be available to purchase from 7 December.

The residency will see Adele follow in the footsteps of Celine Dion, Elton John, Madonna, Mariah Carey and Rod Stewart who have all performed in the famous Colosseum theatre.

Dion and John have each completed two residencies there, with Dion performing more than 1,000 times at the venue.

Usher is the current “resident” at The Colosseum and will wrap up his stint at the beginning of January.

Other notable Las Vegas residencies include Britney Spears at the Axis at Planet Hollywood (2013–2017) and Lady Gaga’s Enigma Show at Park MGM (2018–2020).

Adele’s residency announcement follows the release of her fourth studio album 30 and news of her headliner slot at “the biggest-ever” BST Hyde Park festival in London next year.

Amanda Moore to lead Live Nation Vegas residency biz

Live Nation Concerts has promoted Amanda Moore to lead the residency business for Live Nation Las Vegas, having launched residencies for artists including Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Backstreet Boys, Aerosmith, Usher and Britney Spears.

In her new role, Moore will oversee booking, marketing and business operations for Live Nation’s multi-million dollar residency business in the Vegas market.

Moore will continue to work closely alongside Sid Greenfeig who will continue to manage and run all of Live Nation’s concert business in the market, including across the major large capacity venues such as T-Mobile Arena (cap. 20,000) and the all-new Allegiant Stadium (65,000).

“Amanda has been an integral part of Live Nation’s success and highly esteemed reputation in the Las Vegas market”

The pair will report to Kurt Melien who will oversee overall Las Vegas market growth as well as key client and artist partnerships.

“Amanda has been an integral part of Live Nation’s success and highly esteemed reputation in the Las Vegas market,” says Bob Roux, president of Live Nation Concerts. “I am looking forward to the company’s continued growth in the Las Vegas market, especially for our residency business as we continue to build from a strong historical base of business with our artists and partners.”

Moore helped open the Las Vegas office in 2015, overseeing marketing for the region. Over the last six years, she was closely involved in all residencies and oversaw all marketing, PR, partnerships and community relations initiatives for the market.

In 2019, Live Nation Las Vegas produced over 410 concerts, 300 of which were residency dates.
