As Adele commenced the final leg of her world tour on June 28, the singer confirmed that she might never tour again. On Wednesday night, the English star performed the first of four big shows at London’s Wembley Stadium. This also marked the end of her tour.
Meanwhile, Adele shared a handwritten note in the concert programme explaining why she feels reluctant to tour again in the future.
In the note, she writes, “So this is it after 15 months on the road and 18 months of 25 we are at the end. We have taken this tour across UK + Ireland, throughout Europe, all over America and I finally got to go to Australia and New Zealand too.”
“Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn’t suit me particularly well. I’m a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I’m dramatic and have a terrible history of touring. Until now that is! I’ve done 119 shows and these last 4 will take me up to 123, it has been hard out an absolute thrill and pleasure to have done,” she continues.
“I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favourite artist have had on me live. And I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home. Thank you for coming, for all of your ridiculous love and kindness. I will remember all of this for the rest of my life. Love you. Goodnight for now,” she added.
Recently, Adele met a group of Grenfell Tower firefighters for “tea and a cuddle.”
Adele started her world tour in Belfast in February 2016 and she previously revealed on stage in New Zealand that this tour could be her last saying, “Touring isn’t something I’m good at… applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable.”
