Adele Has Made So Much Money in Las Vegas That She’s Decided to Stay Until Next June


Remember when Adele cancelled all her shows in Las Vegas? She had a bit of stage fright and didn’t like her set.

How times have changed! That was two years ago. Last winter Adele finally dug in to Caesar’s Palace, sold the place out, and made so much money that she extended her residency.

Well, guess what? Now she won’t leave! She’s Rolling in the Dough. It’s an easy gig. She sings the same songs over and over, kibitzes with the audience, and rakes in the dough. So she’s extending again through next June. Why not? Could she learn some more songs? Why bother?

When we were kids, performers who settled down in Las Vegas were considered cheesy. No real rockers would go there. Now everyone is there! U2 is like the Rat Pack. Adele is Shirley MacLaine. Usher is Sammy Davis, Jr. Everything old is new again!
