Adele, known for her soul-stirring melodies and chart-topping hits, brought a spine-tingling twist to her Weekends with Adele Las Vegas show, dazzling fans as she embraced the Halloween spirit in ghostly-glam style. The 35-year-old singer-songwriter, known for her powerful vocals and emotional performances, took to the stage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, in a gothic ensemble reminiscent of Morticia Addams.
Adele’s haunting ensemble featured a floor-length velvety black gown, accentuated by a long train, a vampire-neck collar, and a shimmering silver belt. Complementing her gothic look, the singer sported a smokey eye, cool-toned contour, and a long, sleek wig that cascaded down to her hips. While Adele often adorns herself in dramatic makeup and dramatic black gowns during her performances, the eerie wig added an extra layer of ghostly allure, prompting fans to draw comparisons to the iconic matriarch of The Addams Family, Morticia Addams.
Excited fans who attended the spooky show took to social media, using the hashtag #ADELEOWEEN to share clips and images from the extraordinary event. Adele, ever humble and relatable, candidly revealed to the crowd that she had never dressed up for one of her concerts before. She playfully asked, “Do you mind me being in fancy dress, like, in dress-up? Do you mind?” The audience responded with a resounding cheer.
The “Easy on Me” singer also shared a humorous anecdote, explaining her original intention to wear fangs for the Halloween performance. “I was gonna wear fangs. I had some fangs made just because of Halloween — not that I’m here as a vampire or anything like that,” she quipped. “And I did my soundcheck with them, and I had a lisp.” With a chuckle, she added, “And so I thought, ‘I can’t not look like me and also not sound like me.'”
Despite abandoning the fangs, Adele delivered an unforgettable performance, serenading the crowd with her timeless classics, including “Love in the Dark,” “Hello,” and “Rumour Has It.” Earlier this month, Adele surprised fans with an extension of her Las Vegas residency, originally set to conclude in November. The final leg of her residency will begin in mid-January 2024, featuring 32 additional dates.
In an emotional Instagram post, Adele expressed her excitement about continuing the residency, acknowledging its transformative impact on her. She stated, “This residency, these shows have changed my life,” highlighting the profound reconnection she experienced with her songs and her audience. Adele also reminisced about the heartfelt interactions with her fans, remarking on the joy of performing her poignant songs live.
She marveled at the touching moments with her fans, including laughter, tears, singing along, and shared experiences. Adele emphasized how the residency humanized her fears, strengthened her connection to her audience, and rekindled her passion for performing live.
In conclusion, Adele affirmed her love for being on stage and the exhilaration of performing, asserting that it is where she genuinely belongs. She encouraged her fans to join her one last time before her Las Vegas residency concludes, assuring them that she’ll soon return with her remarkable talent.
