Adele has announced her first tour since 2011.
In recent interviews, the singer has suggested that she would be reluctant to tour for a number of reasons: stage-fright, her vocal health, motherhood and the loneliness of touring. However, in an announcement this morning, she revealed that she had in fact been ‘bluffing‘ and will be heading out on tour next year.
The tour kicks off in Belfast, and will go to Dublin, Manchester, London and Glasgow before finishing in Birmingham. She will then head to mainland Europe.
The tour announcement comes after her latest album 25 has broken the record for the number of albums sold in a UK Chart Week with her 737,000 copies sold beating the previous record held by Oasis, who sold 696,000 records of ‘Be Here Now’ in a week in 1997.
Adele will play:
SSE Arena, Belfast (February 29th & March 1st)
3Arena, Dublin (March 4th & 5th)
Manchester Arena (March 7th & 8th)
The O2 Arena, London (March 15th, 16th, 18th & 19th)
