The “Hello” singer said that she may never tour again after wrapping up a string of shows in Australia and New Zealand.
“Touring isn’t something I’m good at,” she told the 40,000-strong crowd. “Applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable.”
“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 28-year-old singer also burst into tears as she called her latest tour the “greatest accomplishment in my career.”
“It’s changed my life. I understand why I do it,” she added.
Adele’s 2011 tour ended in a ruptured vocal chord, surgery and 16 cancelled shows. During that time, she told Rolling Stone that she hates live performing so much it once made her throw up on someone.
“I just gotta bear it,” she said. “But I don’t like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot.”
She told NPR in 2015 that her stage fright was “actually getting worse. Or, it’s just not getting better, so I feel like it’s getting worse, because it should’ve gotten better by now.”
Adele is confirmed to perform four more shows between June 28 and July 2, dubbed as “The Finale”, at the Wembley Stadium, bringing an end to her 15-month world tour.
