Adele considering Las Vegas stint instead of world tour

Adele is considering a residency in Las Vegas, rather than embark on a gruelling world tour.

The 'Skyfall' singer may perform a number of dates in the US gambling capital, so she can get back to performing, but be based in one spot to settle into family life with her baby Angelo and partner Simon Konecki.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Adele is top of the Vegas hit-list and she's seriously considering it as an option.

"She wants to get back to performing but doesn't want to go on the road so soon after becoming a mum.

"A Vegas residency would mean she could settle with her family and record her third album all at once."

The 'Rolling in the Deep' star has reportedly been asking for tips from her friend Elton John, who celebrated performing 3,000 shows in Las Vegas in 2011 and continues to appear there regularly.

The source added: "She's been asking for advice from Elton, who has spent years performing at Caesars Palace.

"Elton's been like a godfather to her recently, helping her settle into life as a superstar and the challenges of being a parent."

Adele, 24, has also been undergoing Chinese Qi Gong breathing therapy to help her overcome her stage nerves, ahead of making her comeback performance at the Oscars next Sunday.
