Adele has announced her return to the road, including four dates at The O2.
The singer, whose latest album ‘25’ has broken all first-week sales records in the UK and US, is set to perform at the London venue on 15, 16, 18, and 19 March 2016.
Tickets for Adele’s first tour since 2011 go on general sale on 4 December.
Adele’s European dates will include Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen, Herning, Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Zurich, Lisbon, Barcelona, Verona, Amsterdam, Paris, and Antwerp.
Her third album, featuring the single ‘Hello’, is on track to to beat the previous first-week UK sales record of Oasis’ ‘Be Here Now’, which shifted 696 000 units in 1997. In the US, ‘25’ sold 2.4-million copies within three days of its release, beating the previous single-week album sales record set by *NSYNC’s ‘No Strings Attached’ in 2000.
“My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record,” wrote Adele of ‘25’ before its release. “I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. But I haven’t got time to hold on to the crumbs of my past like I used to. What’s done is done.
“Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties. Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully-fledged adult, I made the decision to go into becoming who I’m going to be forever without a removal van full of my old junk. I miss everything about my past, the good and the bad, but only because it won’t come back,” she added.
“‘25’ is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.”
