Throat surgery and caring for a child has Adele rethinking options regarding performances ahead of her rumoured album release in November.

Rumours are rife the 27-year-old British singer will be releasing her third studio album in November and apparently concert promoters are sure they can sell out whole arenas around the world charging prices of at least £100 a ticket if she hosts a concert tour.

It’s also claimed Vegas mega casino-hotels are dying to get her to do a residency at one of their venues, with Caesars Palace and MGM Grand having offered to pay Adele £500,000 per night and the Venetian proposing compensation of £750,000 every evening.

“This is the tour that every promoter wants to bag - but at the moment nobody has had any success, despite offers of tens of millions of pounds,” a source told UK newspaper the Sunday People. “It’s one of those occasions where it isn’t about the money.”

Adele is currently mother to two-year-old son Angelo, who she shares with partner Simon Konecki.

Since the release of her second album 21 in 2011, The Rolling in the Deep songstress has stepped away from the public spotlight to care for the little boy.

Adele also had vocal chord surgery four years ago, having removed a benign polyp.

Both motherhood and health concerns has the singer considering whether going on a tour for her next album is even worth it.

“The album may be coming out, but at this moment in time there are absolutely no concrete plans for a tour,” the insider noted.

"Firstly it’s understood she is not keen to travel around the world with her son as she adores her quiet family life away from fame and fortune.

“Also ever since her throat surgery there has been discussions about how much strain she would have to put her vocal chords under during a lengthy tour.

"Specialists have warned that repeated straining of vocal chords could lead to a relapse of her vocal chord breakage.

“That is of course a huge concern for everyone within the Adele camp. Under no circumstances do the label want to set Adele back by impacting her voice.”
