Adele Is ‘Jealous’ of the Crowd at Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour
This weekend, both Taylor Swift and Adele were performing on separate stages in Las Vegas. Adele was at her Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace, while Swift was continuing her Eras Tour with another sold-out performance. While Adele put on her own amazing show that night, her mind was somewhere else.
In the midst of her performance on Friday evening, Adele told the audience, “If anyone is going to see Taylor tomorrow, I’m f-cking jealous. You know I love her.”
Swift delivered her performance at Allegiant Stadium, which seats 65,000 people, with another show set for Saturday. Adele, however, has a compelling reason to miss it:
she has been offered $1 million each night to extend her residency, which is twice what she is currently taking in for her performances. There has also been talk about doing another run next winter, preferably for the city’s Grand Prix debut on November 18. Dates have not yet been locked in, but it looks promising.
An insider told The Sun, “Adele is being asked to return for extra dates at the end of the year. Bosses at the venue want to tie them into the Grand Prix because her shows have been a massive success for Caesars.”
But Adele has talked about wanting to have another baby soon with alleged fiancé Rich Paul, which makes it hard to know her availability. Her intense schedule has also been affecting her physically.
“It is no secret she has been dealing with back dramas and a knee issue, which she has spoken about on stage,” the source said. “She wants a rest for sure and also hopes to have a baby.”
The couple have never officially confirmed that they are engaged, but Adele wore a gorgeous ring for the first time to the 2022 BRIT Awards.
