Adele has teased details of what fans attending her upcoming re-scheduled Las Vegas residency can expect in a new interview.
As the cover star for the latest edition of ELLE US, the London-born superstar spoke from her LA home about the preparations she's made for the upcoming shows - following the news earlier this year that she had cancelled the initial dates due to a combination of production issues and delays owing to the pandemic.
Now set to take place this September, Adele told Elle that the Weekends With Adele residency would "tell the story of the beginning of my career to now. I'm going to give too much about it, but the show grows. It really grows. And it's really, really nostalgic. It's going to be beautiful."
Confirming that that the initial concept for the residency had a water feature that has now been scrapped (it "looked great for a couple of songs, and then didn’t do anything. It was just there."), Adele offered up some hints as to what design elements fans can expect...hinting that her trip to London to perform live at this year's BRIT Awards proved some serendipitous inspiration.

“It’s tiered stone, and I’d been playing over in my head how vast the stage is in Vegas. I was like, How do I make a stadium-size stage feel small in that room?" Adele said, revealing it was actually an apartment mantlepiece in London that sparked her creativity.
" I noticed all the borders around the fire, and I was like, What if I treat it like a puppet stage?”
It's unconfirmed what songs Adele will be performing at her residency, but they're sure to encompass hits and fan favourites from all her studio albums 19, 21, 25 and 30.

30 itself was named the biggest album of 2021, despite only being released in November of that year. It managed a total of five weeks at Number 1, and its lead single Easy On Me also topped the Official Singles Chart for a total of eight weeks - becoming Adele's longest-running UK Number 1 single in the process.
