Adele’s Postponed Vegas Residency to Begin This Weekend

After canceling her Las Vegas residency on the eve of the anticipated event in January, Adele will finally kick off her rescheduled concerts on November 18, 2022, at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. 

The Vegas residency will span five months, with 32 shows in total. Prior to the Weekends With Adele concerts, she shared a heartfelt post on social media, saying, “I’m feeling all sorts as I write this. I’m highly emotional, incredibly nervous but can’t sit still because I’m so excited.”

“I always get scared before shows, and I take it as a good sign because it means I care and means I just want to do a good job,” she added. “Maybe it’s because I didn’t start when I was supposed to. Maybe it’s because it’s opening night, maybe it’s because Hyde Park went so great, maybe its because I love the show I don’t know. But it’s safe to say I’ve never been more nervous before a show in my career, but at the same time I wish today was tomorrow! I can’t wait to see you out there x”

Dua Lipa Denies 2022 World Cup Performance Rumors 

Pop star Dua Lipa addresses speculation regarding her rumored performance at the upcoming FIFA 2022 World Cup to be held in Qatar. “I will not be performing and nor have I ever been involved in any negotiations to perform,” she wrote in an Instagram post. 

In addition to her denial, Dua remarked about Qatar’s humanitarian crisis. “I will be cheering England on from afar and I look forward to visiting Qatar when it has fulfilled all the human rights pledges it made when it won the right to host the World Cup. One love, Dua x,” she added. The country’s treatment of its migrant workers, criminalization of same-sex relationships and overall stance on the LGBTQIA+ community has attracted serious concerns from fans after FIFA organizers confirmed their decision to host the World Cup in Qatar.

So far, BTS’ Jung Kook is the only confirmed act for the World Cup’s opening performance, set to take place at Al Bayt Stadium on November 20.

Following his North American tour, Tomlinson will head out on a UK and European arena tour from August to November.

Released on November 11, ‘Faith in the Future’ follows his debut solo album, ‘Walls’ (2020). The 14-track record features the singles ‘Bigger Than Me’, ‘Out of My System’ and ‘Silver Tongues’. 

Lizzo Announces Second North American Tour for 2023

Even before wrapping the ongoing first leg of her North American tour, Lizzo has announced a second set of concerts to be held across North America in 2023. Dubbed ‘The Special 2our 2023’ (since it is the second edition of the tour), the 17-date show will also be in support of her recent LP ‘Special’. American rapper Latto will again be the special guest for the second leg of shows in the USA and Canada.

Lizzo will play in Montreal, Cleveland, Baltimore, Memphis, and more before closing the tour in Palm Desert, California. The shows will run from April to June. 

SZA Reveals More Details About New Album ‘S.O.S.’

The answer to SZA’s cryptic video has been revealed! R&B star SZA has now announced her forthcoming sophomore album titled ‘S.O.S.’ A follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Ctrl’ (2017), the highly-anticipated forthcoming record is set to be released sometime in December. 

SZA shared ‘Shirt’ earlier this month from ‘S.O.S.,’ which turned out to be an instant hit, debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart. However, the ‘Drew Barrymore’ singer admits she’s “currently stressed” to meet the album’s release deadline in an interview with Billboard. “I hate the red tape analytics of dropping anything—it’s so stressful,” she said. “I hate the word ‘single.’ It’s like, ‘What the f–k separates a single from other sh-t on my album that I like? Why does it have to be different?’”

Regardless, fans can expect SZA’s signature sounds in ‘S.O.S.’ As per Billboard, the album’s instrumentals feature “lo-fi beats sharing space with surf rock within the same track, a grunge record and an acoustic guitar-driven ballad coexisting without either sounding out of place.”
