House Music Adele’s new dates in Las Vegas pose problems for Grammy or Oscar appearances…

Adele has agreed to 13 new weekend dates next winter in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace Colosseum.

Only one problem: his schedule includes Grammy and Oscar weekends.

Adele is booked at the Colosseum for February 3 and 4. The Grammys are on the 5th, in Los Angeles.

She is booked again on February 24 and 25 in Vegas. The Oscars are on the 26th in Los Angeles.

Of the two disputes, the Grammy Awards are the greater concern. (An Oscar appearance would be welcome but not necessary.) Adele’s “30” album will be named Album of the Year, Song and Record of the Year for “Easy on Me,” at least. Adele will likely be nominated for Best Pop Vocal.

At this rate, “30” would be the leading contender to win those awards. This year has not been so fruitful. We’re expecting Beyonce’s “Renaissance” album, but it already looks like this release is full of sampled music, interpolated old songs, and not so much original material. If only Beyonce could find a pair of writers who wrote regular songs, she could win album of the year. The other candidates are unclear at this time. Taylor Swift’s “Red (Taylor’s Version)” is eligible, but it sounds a bit lackluster. Harry Styles’ new album will be there. Marcus Mumford’s solo release will be part of the discussion.

But Adele will be the key draw at the Grammys in 2023. Can she do two shows in Vegas and then head to Los Angeles for rehearsals and the big broadcast? CBS and the Recording Academy will count on it.
