As her multimillion-selling career continued to soar, Adele, 26, wasn’t the only star who returned to music’s spotlight.
In May 2015, then 33-year-old Prince released his second album of the year, “Hit n Run Phase Two,” effectively ending a two-year hiatus from the stage. The next month Beyonce released her sixth studio album, “Lemonade,” the follow-up to her surprise self-titled release in 2016.
These hip-hop and R&B superstars, along with R&B artist Chris Brown, were among the musicians who made headlines for a special summer residency in one of Las Vegas’ entertainment centers: The Park at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino and the theater at the new Park MGM in the Luxor.
Although the programs were individually exclusive, they might be considered departures from the hotel and casino’s nightly minimum performances, Las Vegas landmark The Beatles, whose lineup now includes Pearl Jam , The Who and Foo Fighters .
While Prince’s shows were non-stop, making their Las Vegas debuts with a diverse range of musical styles, Adele’s Spring 2019 residency will take a slightly different turn.
Adele’s upcoming Las Vegas residency
Only three dates were announced — Adele Live in Vegas, May 18-19, June 3-4 and August 28-29 — and tickets for each performance are priced from $298 to $1,498. The diva will perform alongside a full band with a horn section, while after a 15-month hiatus from the live stage, her signature piano-driven performances will be an hour and 25 minutes long.
The Dublin native has found success with her blockbuster second album, “25,” which has sold more than 30 million copies and become the best-selling album of the past decade in the UK, Billboard’s 2017 artist of the year and O2’s 2016 artist of the year.
It’s being widely speculated the Grammy winner will release a live album of her show, just as Beyonce did with her “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.”
