Adele is said to have fired her creative team and hired a whole new one in a bid to help save her postponed Las Vegas residency.

The singer, 33, is understood to have split with the creative team behind the residency and instead drafted in Take That’s creative expert to take the reins.

Her decision comes after she revealed the postponed run of concerts will ‘absolutely’ be happening this year as she wants to have another baby next year.

Adele has parted ways with her long-term collaborator Es Devlin, who designed the set for her 121-date tour in 2016 and 2017, and has hired Kim Gavin and Stufish, according to The Telegraph.

Artistic director Kim has been behind every Take That tour since 1992 and has won a BAFTA for his work on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Stufish are the production designers who are behind the Rolling Stones upcoming 60th anniversary tour and Stormzy’s Heavy is the Head tour.

A source close to production told the publication that the new team will ‘develop a new show as everything from the Es show has been scrapped’.

The Easy On Me hitmaker was forced to axe all her Las Vegas shows at the 11th hour in January after being ‘destroyed by delivery delays and Covid’.

But she plans to restart the Weekends with Adele shows at the end of July or early August, a source has claimed.

MailOnline has contacted Adele’s representatives for comment. 

In January, the star tearfully told fans she could not go ahead with the residency less than a day before her scheduled debut show at Caesars Palace.

On the Graham Norton Show, Adele later addressed her cancelled dates, admitting her ‘regret’ at the last minute announcement as she insists it would have been a ‘half-a**ed show,’ if she had gone ahead.

‘I tried my hardest and really thought I would be able to pull something together in time,’ Adele explained. ‘I regret that I kept going until that late in the day. It would have been a really half-a***d show and I can’t do that.’

‘People will see straight through me up on the stage and know I didn’t want to be doing it. I’ve never done anything like that in my life and I’m not going to start now.’

But she promised that the shows would take place later this year  

‘We are now working our a***s off, but I don’t want to announce a new set of dates until I know everything will definitely be ready. The sooner I can announce the better, but I just can’t in case we are not ready in time.’

‘It is absolutely 100% happening this year. It has to happen this year because I’ve got plans for next year.

‘Imagine if I have to cancel because I am having a baby!’
