When it comes to album sales and awards, there aren’t many who can hold a candle to Adele. But unlike her fave Beyoncé, touring nonstop just isn’t her thing.
In July, Adele will make her final stop on the tour she kicked off almost a year ago to promote her Grammy-winning album 25. Dozens of shows and cities later, the 28-year-old pop diva says she’s ready to give up on touring altogether. Like, indefinitely.
Never one to keep her feelings bottled in, the singer confessed on stage to her Auckland, New Zealand fans, “I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again. The only reason I’ve toured is you. I’m not sure if touring is my bag. My greatest accomplishment in my career is this tour.” Sure, it could be the exhaustion and home sickness talking (or the rain forcing her to borrow a fan’s poncho), but this isn’t the first time Adele has had major issues performing live.
Aside from her well-known case of stage fright, an issue with her vocal cords has already threatened her singing career once. Adele’s promoter Michael Coppel warned her fans Down Under that this could likely be her last series of shows in the region. “We may never see her again,” he told the Daily Telegraph.
We can’t possibly accept that this is true. So, we’re just going to be over here crossing our fingers that after a nice lengthy home stay and some quality one-on-one cuddle sessions with her adorable son Angelo, she’ll be back on the road someday.
