Adele will reportedly quit touring to raise her son, but hasn't ruled out a Las Vegas residency
Adele plans to stop touring in favour of looking after her son.
The 28-year-old singer is currently in the midst of gruelling 107-world tour - her first live shows since 2011 - but fans are unlikely to see her perform for the next decade as she doesn't want her three-year-old son Angelo, who she has with partner Simon Konecki, to have to cope with the upheaval of life on the road.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Angelo is the number one priority for Adele. He is the most important thing in her life. She has brought him everywhere with her on tour but as he is starting school next year, he won't be able to join her any more.
"Adele doesn't want to miss a moment of Angelo growing up and it's an easy decision for her to give up touring for him. Right now she is saying she won't do another massive world tour like the current one for another 10 years."
However, the 'Hello' superstar is open to following the likes of Britney Spears and Celine Dion in having a residency in Las Vegas, but not in the near future.
The source added: "But she is going to consider doing a Las Vegas residency -- something which has already been put on the table.
"A regular Vegas show appeals to her because it is in one place and she would be able to maintain a normal life, but it won't happen for a number of years."
Adele admitted during her gig in Philadelphia at the weekend that she struggles with touring.
She said: "I don't know how many of you know this but I don't really consider myself to be much of a touring artist.
"I've never gelled very well with touring as I'm a real homebody."
