Performing at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Adele played to an audience of 4,100 people at the opening night. Numerous celebrities from the showbiz and business world were in the audience of 4,100 people on opening night.
In addition to Cook, WeWork founder Adam Neumann, execs from Sony Music Group and CBS, director Baz Luhrmann, British artist Stormzy, and James Corden were in attendance.
Variety reported the group of VIPs was “audibly and visibly thrilled,” complete with “screams and frequent standing ovations.”
The residency was originally set to begin in January. However, the opening was delayed for nine months, due to production issues and Adele’s unhappiness with the staging of the show.
At the start of the show, the singer apologized to those in attendance, saying “I’m truly sorry for any inconvenience and any disappointment that I’ve caused.”
