Reports have circulated this week that once she is finished with her current tour, Adele may not hit the live circuit for another 10 years. The news comes as the British vocalist wrapped up two sold out shows at Boston’s TD Garden and prepares for six — yes, six! — nights at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The reports says Adele deals with stage fright, and British tabloid The Sunwrites the 25 singer wants to spend more time with her young son, Angelo, as he grows up.
Says the source, viaThe NME and other outlets: “Angelo is the number one priority for Adele. He is the most important thing in her life. She has brought him everywhere with her on tour but as he is starting school next year, he won’t be able to join her any more. Adele doesn’t want to miss a moment of Angelo growing up and it’s an easy decision for her to give up touring for him.”
But wait, there is more, and the source did float the possibility of a Las Vegas residency down the line.
“Right now she is saying she won’t do another massive world tour like the current one for another ten years,” the source says. “But she is going to consider doing a Las Vegas residency — something which has already been put on the table. A regular Vegas show appeals to her because it is in one place and she would be able to maintain a normal life, but it won’t happen for a number of years.”
There has been no comment from Adele’s camp.
