- Adele’s bank balance is £130mill, but the singer is set to double her fortune in LA
- She is in discussions to join superstars to achieve a concert residency in Sin City
- Singer, 33, hasn’t been on road since 2017, when her world tour grossed £127mill

Her bank balance is an eye-watering £130 million, but Adele is now set to double her fortune in Las Vegas.
The Mail on Sunday can reveal that the Rolling In The Deep singer is currently in discussions to join the long list of superstars – including Elvis Presley and Mariah Carey – to achieve a richly rewarded concert residency in Sin City.
Sources close to the 33-year-old say she has been attempting to recruit band members who are willing to make the long-term commitment.
If she manages to strike a deal, it would allow her to remain living full-time in Los Angeles and do the 40-minute commute by private jet to the gambling capital.

One source said: ‘Adele has very recently been talking to musicians that she has worked with before to gauge their availability, to see whether they could be in Vegas for the gigs.
‘It is all very exciting. It would make her a lot of money but it would also mean she could have a routine. It would be hugely lucrative for her but also really fun.
‘She loves performing live and there would be no shortage of people travelling to see her once the Covid restrictions are dropped.’
The singer hasn’t been on the road since 2017, when her 120-date world tour grossed £127 million.
Celine Dion (pictured at the The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in 2003) has made an astonishing £450 million from 1,100 residency shows in the city dating back to 2003
Performers who signed up for extended runs of concerts in Vegas stretch back to Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack in the 1960s.
More recently, Celine Dion has made an astonishing £450 million from 1,100 residency shows in the city dating back to 2003.
Ms Dion, 53, has sold more than five million tickets to her concerts, which have been held at the iconic Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
Sir Elton John, Britney Spears, Rod Stewart, Shania Twain, Cher and Bette Midler have also had residencies.
Adele revealed in 2019 that she was separating from her Eton-educated husband Simon Konecki, and divorce papers were lodged in America three months later.
The Londoner – real name Adele Adkins – gave birth to the couple’s son Angelo in 2012.
