Chronic Back Pain

Adele previously shared about her struggle with chronic back pain in a recent interview with The Face. The singer revealed that her back pain began after a bad sneeze caused her to slip a spinal disc at the age of 15. 

“I’ve been in pain with my back for, like, half of my life, really,” Adele said. “It flares up, normally due to stress or from a stupid bit of posture.”

Adele’s back pain is caused by sciatica, a health condition that affects the sciatic nerve in the body. 

Sciatica can be caused by a “herniated disk or an overgrowth of bone puts pressure on part of the nerve,” according to the Mayo Clinic. This can lead to inflammation, pain, and numbness in the lower back, hips, glutes, or legs.

Despite her chronic back pain, Adele has not let it stop her from performing at her sold-out, show-stopping concerts. She continues to deliver powerful performances, singing fan favorites such as “Hello,” “Set Fire to the Rain,” “I Drink Wine,” and “Rolling in the Deep.” 

Adele recently posted a collection of photos from her performances on Friday and Saturday, including a photo of her wearing a “Happy New Year” headband.

Adele’s dedication to her craft is inspiring, and she continues to amaze audiences with her talent and determination. We wish her a fast recovery and hope to see her continue to deliver amazing performances in the future.


Adele made a tearful apology to fans on the opening night of her residency, “Weekends With Adele,” at Caesars Palace. The singer had previously postponed the show just one day before its original run in January.

“I’m truly sorry for any inconvenience and any disappointment that I’ve caused, but we’re here tonight and together,” Adele told the audience, according to Variety. She added that while postponing the shows was difficult, it was “the best decision I ever made.”

Despite the delay, Adele’s Las Vegas residency has been highly anticipated, with tickets selling out almost immediately after they went on sale. The singer did not disappoint, delivering a powerful performance and belting out fan favorites such as “Hello” and “Set Fire to the Rain.”

Adele’s apology and dedication to delivering the best possible performance for her fans is a testament to her professionalism and commitment to her craft. We’re glad to see her back on stage and can’t wait to see what she has in store for the rest of her Las Vegas residency.

She also thanked Caesars Palace for their support, saying, “There has been a lot of s— written about me since I canceled those shows. I tell you — 90 percent of it is absolutely, completely made-up.”

In addition to her hits, Adele also regaled the audience with stories about her life and career. 

She admitted that she had no idea when she wrote her album “21” that her life would become what it is today, and that while there have been amazing things about it, there have also been challenges.

A Soul in It

Adele has spoken out about her postponed Las Vegas residency, saying that it was the “worst moment” of her career. 

The singer had initially been scheduled to perform at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in January, but announced just one day before the shows that they would need to be postponed.

In an interview with Elle, Adele said that she “went into hiding” after the shows were postponed, but that she has no regrets about the decision. “It was the worst moment in my career, by far,” she said. “By far. I was so excited about those shows. It was devastating.”

The phenomenal singer went on to say that the stage setup was not right, and that the shows lacked the authenticity and intimacy that she craved. 

“There was just no soul in it,” she said. “It was very disconnected from me and my band, and maybe I tried too hard to give it those things in such a controlled environment.”

Despite the disappointment of the postponed shows, Adele is now back on stage and performing to sold-out crowds in Las Vegas. 

Her residency, “Weekends With Adele,” has received rave reviews, and fans are looking forward to seeing what she has in store for the rest of the run.
