Adele - 30 (11/19/21)

It's been five years since her last album, but she's got one on deck. This is the reason that Taylor Swift moved up the release of her re-recording of Red by a week. Nobody wants to go head to head against the Queen.

I have 21 and 25 on CD. I don’t think I ever got 19. I don’t really know what singles were from that one. I’m a late Adele listener.

Do you guys just buy your albums digitally on iTunes now since CDs are pretty much dead? I’d like to get this one. Just not sure if I should do Amazon digital or iTunes.

Well guess I need to get the CD then. Target has 3 CD only bonus tracks. I do still have a CD player in my car, but I rarely use it.

The new song isn't very catchy at all.

I get Apple Music for free with my cell plan. I download pretty much every new album I want to listen to and then buy the vinyls of the ones I like and are available on vinyl.

She's not Pink or Kelly Clarkson. When was her last catchy song, Rolling in the Deep?

Catchy might not be the right word, but after hearing the new song 5 times - it's not sticking with me. I can't even remember how the chorus goes.
All her other hits got stuck in my head for awhile - whether I wanted it or not.

She is talented but when her song comes on at 2pm on a Mon Afternoon on the radio I have to change the station and not get in that sad mindset.

There was only one hit single from that album. You know it.

I was a little surprised that she won the Best New Artist award at the time. Much like with Taylor Swift, they were right, I was wrong.

Re: Adele - 30 (11/19/21)

I watched the concert special last night on Paramount + It ran about 87 minutes with no commercials and it was great. Adele was awesome. I also enjoyed her interview with Oprah as well. She looked and sounded really good.

Apparently the special was filmed October 24th, so it was pretty recent.

Re: Adele - 30 (11/19/21)

I've listened to this album about 5-6 times now, and so far it's very underwhelming. Easy on Me is, by far, my favorite track. The whole album is such a deviation in production from her past albums, with a lot more electronic noise versus the traditional instrumentation she's used previously. I honestly can't think of a single track I want to skip from her first three albums, but with over half the tracks on 30, I'm ready to hit next before the song is even 30 seconds in.

Wow. I need to listen to it but that is disappointing to read. Reviews were pretty strong.

Re: Adele - 30 (11/19/21)

Holy shit, this is big for me :

Adele Announces Las Vegas Residency Beginning in January

Adele has announced an exclusive residency in the Colosseum of Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace Hotel, beginning Friday January 21, 2022. Titled “Weekends With Adele,” the singer will perform two shows each weekend through Saturday April 16, 2022 (see full list of dates below) for a total of 12 weeks. The dates appear below.

The long-rumored announcement comes on the heels of the singer’s fourth studio album, “30,” on Columbia Records, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week with by far the year’s biggest first-week numbers, around 839,000 units. It is debuted at No. 1 on album charts in 30 countries and is already one of the biggest selling albums of 2021; it became the top-selling album of 2021 in just three days, topping Taylor Swift’s “Evermore,” which had sold 462,000 copies over 11 months.



The Colosseum, which has an official capacity of 4,100, provides a relatively intimate environment for Adele’s famously chatty concerts, which find her stately and often-sad songs contrasting with her bawdy humor and hilarious, self-deprecating banter (the show scheduled for this coming April Fool’s Day should have some good jokes). Adele’s shows take place across consecutive weekends, except for Feb. 18-19, when Van Morrison — who has taken an outspoken stance against the Covid-19 vaccine — is performing at the venue. Apparently, Caesars Palace has no vaccine requirement for these or any concerts.

Along with two dates in London’s Hyde Park next summer and her recent “One Night Only” CBS special filmed at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, the Las Vegas residency shows are the only concert dates Adele has announced in support of “30” thus far. These appear to be a way for her to perform live while avoiding the hazards and vast complications of touring during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, which has seen many performers, including Jon Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams, test positive for the virus while on tour.




Adele undertook a massive global tour in 2016 and 2017 supporting her previous album, “25,” which took in some 121 arena dates across Europe, North America, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand before wrapping with four shows at London’s 90,000-capacity Wembley Stadium.

Las Vegas residencies by popular recording artists are often extended beyond their initial run, although no details on such an extension for Adele were immediately available. Celine Dion has performed more than a thousand shows during Vegas residencies that extended for years, and grossed some $681.3 million and sold more than 4.5 million tickets across two separate runs, spanning 2003-2007 and 2011-2019.

Presale tickets for the upcoming shows will be available through registration using Ticketmaster Verified Fan. Registration opens at 6 a.m. PT today (Nov. 30) and continues until 11:59 p.m. PT on Thursday (Dec. 2). For more information and to register, visit https://verifiedfan.ticketmaster.com/adele. The Verified Fan Presale will begin Tuesday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. PT. Only fans that have received a unique code will have the chance to purchase tickets for performances on a first come, first served basis. Due to the limited quantity of tickets available, if demand for tickets from Verified Fans exceeds supply, there will not be a public on-sale.

Weekend 1: Friday, Jan. 21 – Saturday, Jan. 22
Weekend 2: Jan. 28 – 29
Weekend 3: Feb. 4 – 5
Weekend 4: Feb. 11 – 12

In addition to the aforementioned Chasing Pavements (may still be my favorite Adele song), the album also included Make You Feel My Love, the Dylan song popularized by Billy Joel.

I usually listen on Spotify, but will buy albums I especially like (or by small artists) on Amazon.

Yeah, I read several of them before listening to the album. They were all praising her "stepping out of her comfort zone" and "trying new styles" and "exploring other genres" instead of sticking to her tried and true formula.

$85-$683 if you can buy them before they hit the secondary.
