Adele says she “never felt so nervous” ahead of the Las Vegas residency’s opening night
Adele said ahead of the opening night of her Las Vegas residency “she’s never been so nervous”.
The singer was originally scheduled to play 24 shows in January, but postponed it in an emotional video explaining that the show wasn’t done yet.
Now the singer has taken to Instagram to share her feelings ahead of the first night.
“I feel very different as I write this. I’m very emotional, incredibly nervous but I can’t sit still because I’m so excited,” Adele wrote in a caption below a photo of herself.
“I feel a million miles from home. I can’t stop thinking about when I was little and saw Tom Jones in Mars Attacks and thought how the hell did he get from Wales to Las Vegas!?”
“I’ve always been scared of shows and I take it as a good sign because it means I care and I just want to do a good job,” she said.
“Maybe it’s because I didn’t start when I was supposed to. Maybe it’s because it’s premiere, maybe it’s because Hyde Park did so great, maybe it’s because I love the show, I don’t know.
“But it’s safe to say I’ve never been more nervous before a show in my career, but at the same time I wish today was tomorrow! I can’t wait to see you out there,” she added.
Adele’s residency will be held weekends through March 25, 2023 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, which seats 4000 people.
The 34-year-old singer said the earlier cancellation was due to the shows’ lack of “intimacy”.
