The Daily Star is today reporting that a number of Las Vegas casino resorts including Caesars and MGM are all attempting to convince the much-loved singer to perform exclusively at their venues, offering exorbitant sums of money in an attempt to seal the deal.
“It is all-out war in Las Vegas for Adele’s signature,” a representative from the industry is quoted as saying. “Three major casinos are rolling the dice to persuade Adele to perform at their resorts.”
“The MGM has been aggressive in its pursuit of Adele. They would like her to be the first resident of their new Vegas Arena,” they added.
This isn’t the first time that Las Vegas casinos have attempted to woo the voice of “Rolling in the Deep” and “Someone Like You”. In 2015, it was reported that Adele was “on the verge” of signing a two-year contract with one of Vegas’ biggest hotels, estimated to be worth a stunning $40 million.
This time could well be different, however. In more recent years, the singer has been quite vocal about her desire to take time off from touring in order to spend time with her son, with a source close to her stating that the singer was considering a move to the US. With her last big tour now behind her, Las Vegas — together with a sizeable pay-cheque — could well provide the stability and kind of daily routine that she has evidently been craving.
If the rumours are true, then Adele would follow in the footsteps of such stars as Britney Spears and Mariah Carey, both of whom have struck lucrative deals with prestigious hotels and casinos in Las Vegas in recent years. With her fans on both sides of the Atlantic already itching to see her return to the stage and recent financial reports proving how important non-gambling entertainment has become to the city’s venues, it’s little wonder that America’s casinos should be trying so vehemently to outbid each other to get her signature.
