Pop fans are set for a cracking Christmas present… a comeback by superstar singer Adele.
The Sunday Mirror can reveal the Someone Like You star, 33, will perform in Las Vegas just after her hotly-awaited fourth album is released.
It will be her first live event in more than four years.
And her millions of British fans can say Hello to the new material too as the December 10 gig is set to be beamed around the world.
A source said: “Adele’s new album is the most highly-anticipated record of the year. It’s been a long time coming but her label wants it released before Christmas and have their sights set on a performance in Vegas.
Are you looking forward to hearing Adele’s new music? Let us know in the comments.
“Adele and her management have been in talks with BBC America about broadcasting it around the world. This will be one of few performances as part of her promotional tour.
“Obviously with ongoing Covid dramas and concern for safety it could affect recording, but this is the date scheduled right now.”
Adele’s last record, 25, has sold 23 million copies since its 2015 release.

The new as-yet untitled record was due to be released last year but was delayed by the pandemic.
Record label Sony are believed to be pencilling in dates in November for the global release of “Adele 4”, tipped to be the top seller at Christmas.
A major marketing campaign and other TV specials are being lined up for the album, which sources say includes songs reflecting on mum-of-one Adele’s 2019 split from Simon Konecki.
She is now in a relationship with American sports agent Rich Paul.
ABBA’s album Voyage, their first new collection of songs since 1982, is out November 5, so Adele’s disc could drop at the end of the month to avoid a clash.
Ed Sheeran recently let slip about her comeback. Asked about his single Bad Habits being song of the year, he said: “I don’t know, I think Adele’s coming back before Christmas. I’ve heard rumours.”
Vegas could be perfect timing for Adele, who posted a Santa pic in 2019 to show she loves the festive season.

Fans will see a new-look Adele too – after her amazing weight transformation.
At her last gig in 2017 she told the crowd: “I want the element of surprise every time I come back and it’s so hard to maintain that. I might never see you again at a live show, who knows, but I will remember this for the rest of my life.”
Representatives for Adele and BBC America did not comment.
