It’s no secret Adele has one of the most respected voices in music and can write a heartbreaking ballad with the best of them. But what music fans who only pay attention to her chart hits from the radio might not know is just how hysterical she is.
On the opening night of her new Weekends With Adele residency in Las Vegas, there were countless moments of Adele’s brilliantly obnoxious sense of humor, with the F-bombs flying freely as she animatedly teased the crowd between songs at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
IN Billboard’s seven best moments from the show, we highlighted one such moment when she hilariously focused on her love for a certain AMC show.
“I have a lot to tell you. It’s a bloody massive week for me this week,” she said. “It’s The Walking Dead final on sunday! Do we have any The Walking Dead fans here?” She was surprised to get a lot of feedback, thinking the opening group might be a little too loud for the zombie show. “Oh! I thought this was going to be a stiffer crowd than that. I’ve been obsessed The Walking Dead for more than a decade, and on Sunday it’s all coming to an end.
“And obviously it’s opening night and it was the Grammys [nominations], and it’s the World Cup — hell, there’s a lot going on!” she said, casually mentioning the seven 2023 Grammy nods she got on Tuesday and her beloved England team playing in the global soccer tournament that starts Sunday.
But that was only the tip of the talking iceberg. Below, find Billboard‘s favorite one-liners and between-song banter from night 1 of Weekender with Adele.
