Adele is amazing.
I saw Adele for the first time on March 20, 2008 at Hotel Cafe, a mere two month after her debut album came out. It was a packed house in the small and intimate venue. It was one of the best shows I’ve ever been. I’ve seen her once since and will catch her in LA in June. I can’t wait – it’s been a while since I’ve seen her and experience her voice, and of course her quirky personality.
Earlier today, Adele played a homecoming show in London tonight at Shepherds Bush Empire. Her tour has more than sold out, with just about every city getting a venue upgrade and additional dates to meet ticket demand.
I’ve said it before, and will say it again, 21 is the album of the year.
“Hometown Glory” and “Someone Like You” are my absolute favorite Adele tunes, (although they are all amazing songs).
“Someone Like You”
There are many many more clips on YouTube. I really hope Adele releases a proper live DVD soon – or a “Behind the Music” special would be brilliant. A little bit of banter and storytelling – and a whole lot of singing.
