Adele Pays Tribute to Madonna’s Celebration Tour Kick-Off – Billboard

Adele: she’s just like the rest of us. That is, she really wants to see Madonna‘s The Celebration Tour. During one of her Weekends with Adele shows at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas this weekend, Adele paid tribute to the queen of pop and acknowledged the London launch of Madonna’s career-spanning world tour.

Strutting across the stage while singing a bit of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” Adele told the crowd, “Do you know Madonna did the opening of her tour tonight in London. Do we have any Madonna fans here tonight?”

When the room exploded in applause, Adele counted herself among the superfans, raising an index finger and smiling. “I love Madonna and I’m very, very excited,” she said, adding that she was glad the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was feeling better and was able to launch her tour after delaying it earlier this year following a hospitalization in June for what was described as a “severe bacterial infection” that landed her in the ICU.

“I’m very jealous I wasn’t at the London show, but I’ll see her whenever she stops by in L.A. Very, very excited,” Adele said.

Madonna stormed back in style at London’s O2 this weekend, kicking off the 78-date tour on Saturday night with the first of six sold-out shows, which encompassed four decades of hits, iconic costumes, music videos and a set design that paid homage to the multi-layered wedding cake from her career-making 1984 MTV VMAs performance.
