Adele has spoken candidly about her previous “disappointing” New Year’s Eve celebrations while announcing her plans to celebrate the end of 2022 on stage.
The 34-year-old “Easy on Me” singer, who recently kicked off her long-awaited Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace to widespread acclaim, revealed on Instagram on Sunday that she would be adding two New Year’s Eve concerts.
“New Year’s Eve has always been a disappointment for me, I seem to always spend it in the car on the way somewhere or back! But not this year!!” Adele wrote on Instagram. “I will call 2023 on stage!!
In the post, Adele then revealed that she usually dresses “to the nines” on New Year’s Eve before asking fans who show up for the newly added concert dates to do the same. “Let’s go all out in black tie vibes,” she added.
The singer shared the ad along with a photo of her opening a bottle of champagne wearing a black gown and commemorative 2023 glasses.
The newly added shows will take place on December 30 and 31, and Billboard notes that pre-sales for those registered with the Verified Fan Ticketmaster program will begin at 10:00 a.m. PST on Wednesday, November 23.
Adele’s statement came after she revealed she had “never been more nervous” ahead of her mansion’s opening night on November 18. The singer was originally scheduled to play 24 shows in January but postponed them after revealing in an emotional video that the show was not ready.
In an Instagram post shared before the first night, Adele said she was “feeling different ways”. “I’m very emotional, incredibly nervous, but I can’t sit still because I’m so excited,” she captioned a photo of herself standing on stage. “I always get scared before performing and I take that as a good sign because it means that I care and that I just want to do a good job.”
After being greeted with a standing ovation on Friday, the British singer took the opportunity to express her gratitude to the audience and her fans. “Thank you so much for coming back to me,” she told the audience. “It looks just as I imagined. It’s just perfect. Thank you.”
The “Hello” singer’s weekends with Adele’s residence will last until March 25, 2023.
