Adele is forced to take vocal rest due to chest issue during Vegas residency… for this reason

Adele is taking several days of vocal rest after suffering a scare during her Las Vegas residency – but admits it is one of her toughest ever challenges.

Stressed and emotional Adele complained of suffering voice issues, which made her sound like the cartoon villain ‘Ursula’ from The Little Mermaid.

The Londoner apologized to the audience at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace admitting she had concerns about hitting notes over a chest issue.

However the self confessed motormouth, 35, will have to ‘lock herself away’ to stop chatting with her sociable son and partner Rich Paul.

Adele, who underwent surgery for polyps in her throat in 2011, made it clear to Saturday’s packed house of those concerns about her performance at the show start.

Adele, who has battled cord issues in the past, admitted: ‘In the middle of last night – I’m sure you can hear it in my talking voice and my singing voice a little bit. Your girl was tired. I didn’t sleep very well…


‘And Ursula from the ocean has come from my chest tonight. I can’t hit my headnotes properly. I didn’t sleep very well and my chest is on fire.. I can tell I’m going to have a coffee in like 10 days, but I’m still here.’

She added of her delight at the audience’s ‘energy’ being so positive it aided her mood.

But then she declared: ‘Straight after this show I am going on voice rest. Can you imagine how hard now me not talking for three days is? So I’m going to be in bed coughing my guts up on complete voice rest…

‘And not only is my partner an absolute chatterbox, so is my son. So I am going to have to lock myself in a cupboard or something like that.’

Adele lasted for a 100 minutes in her song, often sipping honey and hot water in between tunes.

Welling up on stage, Adele seemed to feel a little better, but acknowledged her voice issues as she ended the sold out show: ‘My voice came back about four songs ago…

‘You’ve been amazing. The show. Thank you, thank love, magical, magical, all putting it together from the moment out. I’m so glad you had a good time. I look crazy, I feel crazy… I’m going to go on voice rest.’

Adele still has 20 Vegas shows left before heading off to Munich for summer stadia gigs. Her last world tour Adele Live saw her cancel her last two shows at Wembley Stadium in 2017 over vocal worries.

She has spoken in the past too about recovering from trauma in that region.

On stage Adele admitted her weekend plans of shouting at her TV and singing along to Jennifer Lopez’s new film This Is Me have been impacted.

‘I made very solid plans with my gay friends, they were going to come round to my house. We were going to light a fire, maybe have a spritzer, which obviously now I can’t have – dammit. ‘And we were going to sit down and watch the new JLo movie, which I’ve been so excited about.

‘B**ches f**king made other plans. They already have plans. And they have left me on my own.’

She plans to conduct her review Lopez’s ‘in silence’

Adele also recalled to the audience how she has a unique bond with iconic rock star Bruce Springsteen.

Her memory was jogged when she watched the entire past halftime show run from the Super Bowl over the years.

While Beyonce remains her favorite, she then announced Springsteen was ‘easily her second.’

‘Before, before or before Beyonce headlined, I’ve never even watched a Super Bowl. halftime performance. So I thought he was absolutely hands down, f** ing incredible. He knew exactly what his vibe was and what people wanted from him and he nailed it. It was top top tier.

‘And then I started telling my friends a story of him in 2016 when I was on tour with my third album with 25, I was in Lisbon in Portugal, and it was the best show and actually ended up being the best show of the whole tour.

‘Because they were just so f***ing loud. It was absolutely crazy. The night before was Rock In Rio in Lisbon, in Portugal, and Bruce Springsteen was headlining.

‘So I went and I was wearing a black top and some parachute pants and it was freezing. I wasn’t expecting it to be freezing.

‘And me and Bruce Springsteen are label mates, but that doesn’t mean anything really, I don’t know him or anything like that.

‘I’ve got let backstage on the festival thing and I was sitting outside minding my business and suddenly someone put a coat on me. So I was like, f***ing hell it’s cold. And from behind me someone put a coat. It was Bruce f***ing Springsteen who brings me his f***ing coat. And I wore it the whole show. His corduroy coat.

‘He was the nicest man I’ve ever met. And his wife was so nice as well.’
