Adele has announced she will be taking a “big break” from music after her upcoming concerts, saying: “I don’t have any plans for new music at all.”

The British singer, who has spent the past two years playing a weekend residency in Las Vegas, is performing in Europe next month for the first time since 2016.

She has a 10-date string of gigs booked in Germany for August at Munich’s Messe exhibition centre, which boasts a capacity of 80,000.

At the weekend, she posted images on Instagram of the set-up there, writing: “It’s all a bit bloody exciting.”

Weekends With Adele launched at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in November 2022 and is due to conclude in November this year.

The 36-year-old told German broadcaster ZDF she was planning an extended break after the run of shows.

“My tank is quite empty at the minute,” she said.

“I don’t have any plans for new music at all.

“I want a big break after all this, and I think I want to do other creative things just for a little while.

“You know, I don’t even sing at home at all. How strange is that?”

She said her sell-out shows at Caesar’s Palace, which seats 4,000 people, have been a success but have also been emotionally draining

“Even though it’s a very manageable size of crowd, it’s really been an emotional exchange,” she said.

“I’m sure I’ll feel even more like (that) every night after the shows in Munich. But it’s a positive thing. It’s just such an exchange of energy.”

Last month, footage showed her confronting a homophobic heckler during one of her Las Vegas shows.

The Hello singer also said she misses her life before she found fame.

“I miss everything about before I was famous, I think probably being anonymous the most,” she said.

“I like that I get to make music all the time, whenever I want to, and people are receptive to it and like it. That’s pretty unimaginable. But the fame side of it I absolutely hate.

“The fact that people are even interested in my songs and my voice is pretty wild. I don’t think it ever gets normal. So it’s worth it, the balance.”
