Adele is extending her Las Vegas residency, telling fans that playing 34 shows to 4,000 people a night was “not enough”. 

The singer announced the new shows on what was supposed to be the last night of her Weekends With Adele residency in the Colosseum Theatre at Caesars Palace.

The 34-year-old said the concerts will be recorded and later released on film.

In videos shared on social media, Adele can be heard telling the crowd: “Playing to 4,000 people for 34 nights is not enough, and I know that.

“I know it’s not enough, so I am coming back.”

She added: “I’ll be back for a few weeks in June and I’m going to film it, and I’m going to release it to make sure that anyone who wants to see it can.

“And then I’ll be back in summer, from the end of August until fall.”

Adele was forced to delay the start of her residency, which was supposed be in January 2022, due to COVID.

The shows were scrapped just 24 hours before the opening night, leading to what the singer called a “brutal” backlash from fans.

Announcing the new shows, the singer acknowledged the delay, telling the crowd cancelling shows had been the “worst thing”.

“I was absolutely devastated, and I came back, and as usual I smashed it, I always smash it,” she said.

She added: “And I’m glad that I cancelled, and I still am sorry, for the inconvenience and the disappointment, especially to the people who had landed in Vegas already.”
