Adele Reveals She May Never Go On Tour Again In Tearful Clip From Latest Show
You should probably catch Adele on tour while you still have the chance.
During the Aukland, New Zealand leg of her "Adele Live" tour, the 28-year-old singer told audience members -- and I'm going to suggest you take a seat or brace yourself for this -- that her current tour could very well be her last.
Everyone take a moment to look out of a rainy window and contemplate life.
A tearful Adele told the crowd at Mount Smart Stadium,
Touring isn't something I'm good at… applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable.
Going on to say,
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.
The comment was made on Sunday night as she was wrapping up her last tour date away from home. She plans on finishing up "Adele Live" during the fourth leg of her tour in London later this year.
You can watch footage from the concert where she made the announcement here:
Adele has never been secretive about her hatred of going on tour. During an interview with Q Magazine, she made the comment,
I have anxiety attacks, constant panicking on stage. My heart feels like it's going to explode because I never feel like I'm going to deliver, ever.
So, she isn't just feeding us a line when she's saying, "It's not you, it's me."
In fact, her tour has been a testament to how much she loves her fans, at times even featuring her becoming an advocate for audience members when THE MAN tries to stop the fun from happening.
During one concert, she berated a security guard who kept telling people to sit down while she was singing.
She reportedly told the guard,
Excuse me, sir. Now, I know you work here, but can you stop telling people to sit down? This is a music show, if people can't see then they can stand up. And if you're moaning about people dancing, then what the fuck did you come to a show for?
Tour or not, we'll never stop loving you Adele... but also, like, pleaseeeeee keep touring, maybe?
