Adele’s residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas will end in two and a half months.

However, it appears that the number of people interested in seeing her perform there is already dwindling.

Since mid-November 2022, the “Rolling in the Deep” singer has been performing her most well-known songs in Sin City as part of her “Weekends with Adele” engagement.

The British singer-songwriter is scheduled to perform until March 25, 2023, and when her shows sold out, the price of tickets on ticket resale websites skyrocketed to $48,371.

According to a recent article in The Sun, resale ticket costs have dropped by 90%, with each seat available for just $4,172.

According to the publication, officials at The Colosseum have admitted that certain performances aren’t even drawing a full house.

A tipster close to the situation said:

“Adele’s performances have been great, but weirdly the early desire to hear her sing has decreased – and that is reflected in the price of tickets.”

The possibility of purchasing front-row seats for a few hundred dollars just before the performance is also mentioned.

They continued:

“And the assumption is that costs will keep dropping as she approaches the conclusion of her tenure in March.”

Adele was paid in advance for her concert, which is expected to be worth $240 million.

Fans were surprised and outraged when it was revealed last month that ultimate VIP seats to her concert were sold for nearly $4.7 million as part of a Las Vegas Grand Prix package deal.

Fans vented their rage and displeasure on social media following the announcement of the “Emperor Package,” which includes 12 Formula 1 tickets but only two for Adele, 12 Paddock Club seats, a private dinner with chef Nobu Matsuhisa, five nights at the Nobu Sky Villa hotel, and a 24-hour butler.

An outraged supporter tweeted:

“This is so absurd!”

They continued:

“Is this what a Formula 1 Emperor Package has come to. Why are there only two tickets available for Adele’s residency at Caesars Palace? We require 12! Fix this!”

Another user tweeted:

“Absolutely horrible that F1 is even permitting this.”

They questioned:

“Why would I even contemplate a race in the US when I can simply travel to Europe to see a race for a fraction of the price, which includes flights and lodging?”
