Apple CEO Tim Cook attended the opening of Adele's Las Vegas residence on Friday, watching the singer begin her performance.
Speaking at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Adele spoke to an audience of 4,100 people at the premiere. Many big names in showbiz and business were in attendance, including one from Apple.
Tim Cook is listed alongside WeWork founder Adam Neumann, Sony Music Group and CBS executives, filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, British artist Stormzy and James Corden as high-profile attendees. While Cook's personal opinion is not covered by Variety, a group of VIPs were reportedly “early and visibly excited”, accompanied by “shouts and frequent ovations”.
The performance was highly anticipated as the residency was originally supposed to start in January. However, production problems and Adele's dissatisfaction with the production resulted in a nine-month delay.
At the beginning of the show, the singer apologized to those in attendance, saying, “I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and frustration I caused.” A two-hour show followed, with nearly 30 minutes of banter to her greatest hits.
