Adele has been warned she could face damage to her vocal cords during her upcoming residency in Las Vegas – worth £30 million – due to the dry heat in the desert city
Adele could be at risk of losing her voice during her £30million Las Vegas residency.
She was warned by rock legend and Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott, who said the dry heat in the scorching hot city could affect her vocal cords.
Joe, 62, previously played his own residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino back in 2019, and said the lack of humidity in the desert had an adverse effect on his iconic voice.
“I had to fill my bath with boiling water every night and put kettles and humidifiers all over the place so you wake up drowned,” he told the Daily Star, as he complained the climate in Sin City was a “killer for singers”.
And he urged the Hello hitmaker to invest in some good equipment to keep her voice in tip top condition.
“For god’s sake get a humidifier for your room,” Joe pleaded.
Adele has had problems with her vocal chords over the years, and in 2011, she underwent surgery after suffering a haemorrhage to her vocal cords.
She made a full recovery, but in 2017, she was struck down again and was forced to cancel the final two shows of her world tour at London’s Wembley Stadium after damaging her vocal cords.
The Nevada resort is one of the driest cities in America, and the parched atmosphere has previously affected other singers, including U2 frontman Bono, and Jon Bon Jovi.
Back in 1997, when the Irish rockers kicked off their PopMart world tour, the dry air played havoc with the singer’s throat, while Bon Jovi vowed to never play a gig in Las Vegas again after his voice became damaged while performing in the city.
Adele will rake in more than £500,000 per show when her Weekends With Adele residency kicks off on Friday at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum.
Tickets to see the mother-of-one range from £700 to more than £9,000, and as well as getting a cut of ticket sales, Adele will also make money from exclusive merchandise sold at the venue.
