ADELE repeatedly broke down in tears on stage during an emotional performance for the opening night of her Las Vegas shows, confessing she was “so scared and nervous.”
Speaking to a packed audience at the Ceasar’s Palace Colosseum, the Easy On Me singer, 34, opened her Weekends With Adele residency and said: “I should be giving you a standard ovation, thank you so much for coming back to me.

“I really appreciate it. You look amazing and it looks just what I imagined it would look like, it’s perfect.
“I’m so scared and nervous, but I am so happy, I don’t know what I was thinking putting piano ballads at the top of the set, hopefully over time my nerves will disappear.
“I would also really like to thank Caesar’s because there have been a lot of rumours and they never once asked any questions, they’ve been amazing.
“Only legends have been through these doors, I’m so honoured. I have no idea what I’ve embarked on for five months, but I can’t wait.”
Adele, who opened her iconic show with track Hello, added in her signature bold style: “I will remember this night for the rest of my f**king life, better late than never.”
The pop princess was referring to the postponement of the residency – originally billed for January – which caused outrage among ticket-holders with only a day’s notice.
At the time, Adele posted an emotional video to her Instagram citing “delivery delays and covid” to blame for the show’s abrupt delay.
She then returned to home turf to perform twice in London‘s Hyde Park this July.
Yet it seems her determination to make things perfect for her fans has paid off.
She played a bumper set-list of 20 tracks, including many from her long awaited new album.
Yet there was certainly room for old favourites Hometown Glory, Turning Tables and Water Under The Bridge, among more.
Adele was supported in the audience by boyfriend Rich Paul, 40, son Angelo, 10, and pal James Corden, 44.
She credited Celine Dion for inspiring her to perform on stage.
She said: ”I’m not going to lie I feel like Celine Dion, that’s another reason why I wanted to sing in here, she’s my favourite.”
The My Heart Will Go On singer has performed a number of residencies at the iconic venue, yet sadly postponed her latest in 2021 due to “muscle spasms.”
