Adele moves to stay at rival Las Vegas casino during Caesar’s Palace residency after room row
HER delayed Las Vegas shows finally launched to triumphant reviews this weekend — but ADELE’s hotly anticipated residency hasn’t been plain sailing.
The A-lister took to the stage at Caesars Palace on Friday, where she performed a sold-out show of hits to rapturous applause.
Yet instead of bedding down at the luxurious venue she opted to head up the famous strip to stay at rival The Wynn following a disagreement over suites.
Sources say the pad she was offered at Caesars wasn’t as good as many of those being handed out to high rollers — so she quickly shifted herself and her entourage to the nearby alternative.
One insider said: “It’s a snub in many ways but she’s a superstar who can kind of do whatever she wants.”
It is thought she will now stay in a private villa on the Wynn complex, a favourite with A-listers in town, despite the offer of other swanky suites at Caesars, and commute to her gigs.
Two additional dates were announced yesterday.
Adele’s shows had been due to start in January but were cancelled hours before the first night, with the singer tearfully telling fans she “just wasn’t ready” amid production issues.
But she finally emerged in Sin City last weekend — admitting nerves were dominating her mindset.
She said: “I’m so nervous and I’m so scared and I’m so happy. It might be a bit wobbly at times because my nerves are out of control.
“It’s a bloody massive week for me this week.”
She posted online on Thursday night that she had “never been more nervous before a show”.
On stage to an audience of 4,000, which included her son Angelo, she said: “Thank you so much for coming back to me.
“It looks just like I imagined it would.”
Amid standing ovations before and after her show, Adele said the gig had been “just perfect”.
Judging by early reviews, she wasn’t wrong.
