5. Katy Perry and Adele Close Out Their Extraordinary Residency Shows
Two of the year’s biggest Las Vegas residencies are coming to an end on Saturday, November 4 — “Katy Perry: Play” and “Weekends With Adele.” Opened at the end of 2021, “Katy Perry: Play” has added dates throughout 2022 and 2023, due to popular demand, at The Theatre of Resorts World Las Vegas. November 4th’s performance is the last chance to catch the show the Las Vegas Sun described as “a feast for the eyes and ears.” Likewise, “Weekends With Adele” extended what Rolling Stone hailed as “a record-breaking run” that kicked off in November of last year. The upcoming November 4th show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace will be the acclaimed singer’s final residency performance. Both promise to be unforgettable evenings.
