Home Music Adele’s New Las Vegas Dates Pose Issues for Grammy or Oscar Appearances...

Adele has agreed to 13 new weekend dates next winter in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace Colosseum.

Only one problem: her schedule includes the weekends of the Grammy Awards and the Oscars.

Adele is booked into the Colosseum for February 3rd and 4th. The Grammys are on the 5th, in Los Angeles.

She’s booked again February 24th and 25th in Vegas. The Oscars are on the 26th in Los Angeles.

Of the two conflicts, the Grammy Awards are the biggest concern. (An Oscar appearance would be desired but not necessary.) Adele’s “30” album will be up for Album of the Year, Song and Record of the Year for “Easy on Me,” at least. Adele will likely be nominated for Best Pop Vocal.

At this rate, “30” would be the leading candidate to win those awards. This year hasn’t been so fruitful. We’re waiting for Beyonce’s “Renaissance” album, but it already looks like that release is full of sampled music, old songs interpolated, and not so much original material. If only Beyonce could find a pair of writers who composed regular songs, she might win Album of the Year. Other candidates are unclear right now. Taylor Swift’s “Red (Taylor’s Version)” is eligible, but that seems a little dull. Harry Styles’ new album will be in the mix. Marcus Mumford’s solo release will be part of the discussion.

But Adele will be the key draw for the Grammys in 2023. Can she do two Vegas shows, then hightail it to LA for rehearsals and the big broadcast? CBS and the Recording Academy will be counting on it.
