Adele has told fans she feels "a million miles away from home" and has "never been more nervous" ahead of the opening night of her previously postponed residency in Las Vegas.

The British star's original run of performances at the Caesars Palace hotel was called off at the 11th hour in January, with the star in tears as she announced the show was not ready due to problems caused by .

Now, Adele's Vegas residency takes place from 18 November to 25 March 2023, taking in the 24 rescheduled shows plus eight extra gigs, and thousands of fans are expected to turn out for the first night.

Taking to Instagram, the Hello singer shared an update on her feelings ahead of the show. She wrote: "I’m feeling all sorts as I write this. I’m highly emotional, incredibly nervous but can’t sit still because I’m so excited. I feel a million miles away from home."

She continued: "I can’t stop thinking about when I was little and saw Tom Jones in Mars Attacks and thought blimey how did he get from Wales to Las Vegas!? I always get scared before shows, and I take it as a good sign because it means I care and means I just want to do a good job."

Adding, "Maybe it’s because I didn’t start when I was supposed to. Maybe it’s because it’s opening night, maybe it’s because Hyde Park went so great, maybe its because I love the show I don’t know. But it’s safe to say I’ve never been more nervous before a show in my career, but at the same time I wish today was tomorrow! I can’t wait to see you out there x."
