Adele May Never Tour Again, She Tells Rain-Soaked Crowd
Adele fans: Here's hoping you were one of a select few who managed to score tickets to the singer's current Adele Live! concert series — Miss Send My Love has announced it may be the last time she ever tours.
The 25 crooner, who first announced her massive 15-month world tour in December 2015, told a crowd at a rainy show at Auckland's Mount Smart Stadium last night (March 26) that her current concert series — which wraps up in July in London — may also be her last. Hello, goodbye...
"Touring isn't something I'm good at — applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable," she said according to The New Zealand Herald. "I don't know if I will ever tour again...The only reason I've toured is you. I'm not sure if touring is my bag. My greatest accomplishment in my career is this tour."
Adele, who began her tour in Northern Ireland more than a year ago, has since traveled across Europe, North America and Australia, and has engineered more than one proposal, tried her hand as a standup comedian and been attacked by a bat en route.
And through it all, she's delivered voice and personality — the most recent show was no exception, at which she made fans laugh even as rain poured down in buckets.
"I just spent two hours in hair and makeup for nothing," she joked. "You poor things. It's really raining isn't it?"
"Who wants to make a bet with me I'll fall over at some stage...or get electrocuted by my microphone?" she added.
