Has Hello singer Adele said goodbye to touring?
Adele has hinted to her fans she may never tour again and is happy to have her final shows in London.
The Hello singer waved goodbye to a Wembley crowd on Wednesday, and published a handwritten note in the programme announcing what could mean an end to life on the road for the award-winning singer.
“So this is it. After 15 months on the road and 18 months of 25 we are at the end,” the 29-year-old star wrote.
“Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn’t suit me particularly well. I’m a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things.
“Plus, I’m dramatic and have a terrible history of touring. Until now that is!”
The star is coming to the end of her run of gigs across the UK, Ireland, Europe, the US, Australia and New Zealand.
“I’ve done 119 shows and these last four will take me up to 123,” she continued.
“It has been hard but an absolute thrill and pleasure to have done. I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favourite artists have had on me live.
“And I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home. Thank you for coming, for all of your ridiculous love and kindness. I will remember all of this for the rest of my life.”
The concert was the first of four at Wembley Stadium, and rounded up a record breaking 98,000 Adele fans to watch the grand finale.
The mother-of-one has hinted on a possible step away from touring for years, saying she never enjoyed live performances.
