The residency would cover all of her North American touring plans for 2022, as Adele’s booking team have not placed any holds for major arena or stadium dates.

Why She Took A Break
According to Fox, Adele’s hiatus was a much-needed breather from the spotlight:
The “Rolling in the Deep” musician has mostly stayed out of the public eye over the last few years. Instead, she focused on maintaining a healthier lifestyle and lost a significant amount of weight.
She took time to heal from a divorce and to spend time as a mother of her child, Angelo James. While the Brit has kept her son out of the spotlight, she had this to say about being a parent:
“I felt like I was truly living. I had a purpose, where before I didn’t”
While some were critical of the songstress’ weight loss, most people supported her work towards self-improvement and self-love. Adele hosted SNL last year and poked fun at all the controversy:
I’m a big fan of her voice, “Rolling in the Deep” is a certified hit and one of my favorite songs. No one but her has captured that smoky and sultry female-led blues.
It will be interesting to see if Adele can repeat her smashing success with those songs with her new track “Easy On Me”.
I’m glad she is coming back. Thankfully I live very close to Las Vegas so I will be able to see Adele perform in Sin City. Might even squeeze in a Penn & Teller show or one of those helicopter Grand Canyon tours.
Welcome back Adele – the world missed you!
