When our friends at iheartradio hooked us up with the opportunity to attend the Adele show at the P.C. Richard & Son Theater, we could barely contain our excitement! We first got hooked on the lovely lady with her debut album 19, and now with her sophomore effort 21, our love for her has solidified!
On Friday, we headed down to the show with our friends in tow and excitedly waited for her to take the stage. Having met her outside the Sony building a few months prior, and having had a great but albeit brief conversation, we expected her to be instantly likable on stage and she certainly was! As soon as she wandered out smiling, waving and admitting she was slightly nervous, she had us in the palm of her hand (and we hadn’t even heard her sing yet!) She remarked that since she was nervous she’d better get on with singing and would chat to us later before breaking into Hometown Glory. After just a few notes we were floored, she sounded even better than the record!
After Hometown Glory, true to her word and feeling more relaxed, she launched into a story about giving up smoking (yay Adele!) and erm tomatoes on the advice of her vocal coach, this sounds rather boring as she herself remarked “I can’t believe I just told that story, how boring!” however, it was anything but, she was so chirpy and funny that we loved it!
It was a night of perfect parallels, on the one hand we had the funny and irreverent girl having a laugh with us, telling jokes about fans wanting Beyonce‘s sweaty tissues, and on the other she had us speechless with the power of her vocal ability and poignant lyrics that could move a girl to tears!
21 is released in the U.S on February 22nd and Adele will be embarking on a Spring tour in the U.S (hit more to see the dates) which you just can’t miss! - Camille
