She famously hates touring – so superstar Adele’s upcoming Las Vegas residency is going to be worth her while.
Adele will earn almost a million dollars per show from Friday, making her one of the highest-paid female stars in the history of Las Vegas residencies.
Tickets for Weekends With Adele at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum range from $1325 to $17,000-plus, The Sun reports.
The superstar singer will get her cut from sales as well as from all merchandise sold at the 4200-seater venue.
She will be treated to a host of perks with Caesars laying on a $56,000-a-night private suite accessible at any time during the residency, a butler, executive assistant, chauffeur and security.
Adele and guests will also be able to eat and drink for free at any Caesars resort.
A source said: “Adele is the hottest ticket in Las Vegas right now and she’s raking in a pretty penny from it.
“She is expected to make over £500,000 ($A946,000) per gig thanks to ticket sales alone, even before the merchandising.”
Rod Stewart is believed to have made $A3.6 million a show for his 2012 residency at the Colosseum, while Lady Gaga is said to have made over $A1.3 million a gig from her MGM Park Theatre residency between 2017 and 2019.
Adele announced last year she would be playing 24 concerts on Fridays and Saturdays at Caesars.
They run from this week until April 16.
The London-born star will sing at British Summer Time Hyde Park on July 1 and 2.
Tickets for that event are already at $1300 upwards.
Her album 30, released in November, became the fastest-selling of the year in both the UK and US.
Its first track Easy On Me, broke the all-time record for the most streamed song in a day on Spotify with over 24 million global streams.
The single was also No1 in the UK for eight non-consecutive weeks and became her best charting song – beating her five-week run at the top for Someone Like You in 2011.
“Caesars has rolled out the red carpet to ensure she’s treated like the superstar she is.”
