Adele is returning to Las Vegas for a second consecutive year

LAS VEGAS — British singer Adele is returning to perform for Las Vegas patrons for a second consecutive year at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The announcement Wednesday came a day after Adele performed at the Billboard Music Awards to a packed theater at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. That show was televised Monday on ABC and generated more than 33 million viewers.

Tickets for her newest show in August went on sale June 27, and they’re likely to be the hottest tickets in town. Last year’s first show sold out in 12 minutes.

The Grammy Award-winning singer of “Hello” broke Las Vegas records with two sold-out, four-night residencies in 2016 at The Colosseum. Both shows also had 2,000-plus shows a week.

While her last tour was a hodgepodge of dates with backing bands and duets, the singer says she plans to focus on solo singing with her latest concerts. She will also make some tweaks to the stage design, which was created by Spike Jonze.

“The energy in that room was something I’ve never experienced before,” she said of her 2016 shows, which she wrapped in December. “It doesn’t get much bigger than that.”

Adele is touring in support of her latest studio album, “25,” which won the Album of the Year Grammy in February, and also topped the Billboard 200 albums chart. She sold more than 2.4 million copies in the U.S. in its first week, and it earned multiple Grammy nominations and multiple Billboard awards. It spent 28 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1.
