Adele Announces That She May Never Go on Tour Again, Says Stage Fright Is the Problem
It was Sunday night in Auckland, New Zealand and singer Adele Adkins announced that she may not be performing any tours again, citing this as her last tour. She dropped the news in a jam packed Mount Smart Stadium, where a crowd of 40,000 had come to see her.
The show in Auckland was the final in a series of 119 shows of her world tour; which had sold out shows in Europe, New Zealand, Mexico, North America and Australia. The tour dubbed Adele Live was her first tour in 4 years.
At the end of her performance the singer said that she may never tour again. She-Adele, has never tried to hide her fear of big stages. Last year, in an interview, she confessed that she gets terrible stage fright just before big shows. At Auckland she told the throng of fans that she was not good at live performances and that applause makes her vulnerable. The singer is known to have thrown up at someone back stage before going on stage due to the fear and apprehension that grips her just before she gets on stage. As a matter of fact, the lyrical genius said that the only reason she accepted performing in stadiums is because of the mass of fans who wanted to see her live.
The singer identifies with the joy of seeing one’s favourite performer on stage and didn’t want to deny her own fans the pleasure.Adele is set to perform four more shows at the Wembley stadium that will be the culmination of the tour. The four performances, scheduled to take place from 28th June to 2nd July are even called “The Finale.” They are a sort of last opportunity for any Adele fan out there to see her live for the final time even though the shows were all sold out within minutes of ticket sales.
She may never need to perform again anyway
The Hello singer has amassed quite a fortune from her music and merchandise. In Australia alone, hundreds of thousands of fans bought t –shirts, some of which had surreptitiously been signed by her. Tickets for sold out shows, with tens of thousands in attendance, went for $100-$800; figures that would quadruple in the resale market. This together with her ongoing success in album sales should sort everything out in terms of finances.
Adele’s announcement in New Zealand came as a shocker even though she has always treated her fans to a fine dose of surprise announcements. Just the other day, she confirmed that she got married to long time partner, Simon Konecki. Adele, who has had an illustrious career, broke into tears as she made the announcement and called this tour the greatest achievement of her career. To her it was a life changing experience that made her realize why she does it.
