Adele's preshow ritual has been revealed

Adele has a special good luck charm in the form of Celine Dion. The 35-year-old has a ritual of kissing a poster of the All By Myself singer, who is an idol of the Tottenham-born star.

The source told The Mirror: "Adele does is have a kiss with Celine. It has become a little superstition before a show. She walks from the dressing room underneath the stage up some steps where a giant framed picture of Celine is - and she plants a little smooch on it for luck."

Everyone behind-the-scenes thinks that her pre-show kiss is cool as well. After all, Dion was one of the key reasons that Adele agreed to perform in Las Vegas.

The source said: “She met with Celine a couple of years ago after her show. Adele was blown away by the intimacy of The Colosseum and how unusual it was. Certainly Adele was always concerned about stage fright and stress and was unsure about needing to tour again."

It turns out that Adele is truly more emotional than fans even realise. This interaction with Celine was incredibly impactful on how Adele decided to move forward.

The insider continued: “She sat down with Celine and was really moved by how she created the vibe she wanted and felt so connected to her audience. Another key factor for Adele was protecting her voice in the desert air of Vegas. She has had an array of vocal problems during her career, and was reassured by the way that the venue was geared up to help artists.”

In October 2011, Adele had vocal cord surgery as a result of a benign polyp that caused haemorrhaging. With this sort of rough past with her vocals, it is definitely important for Adele to take care of herself. After all, prior music legends like Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliot have opened up previously about the stress a Vegas residency put on their vocal cords.

Adele's residency has lasted longer than anticipated. Originally, it was supposed to end in March 2023, but its still going strong in August.
