Adele returned to London last night for the final four shows of her 25 tour. Though it wasn’t all butterflies and unicorns…
Buried in her tour program was a handwritten note announcing that she may never tour again.
The note reads “So this is it after 15 months on the road and 18 months of 25 we are at the end.”
“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!
“I’ve done 119 shows and these last four will take me up to 123, it has been hard but an absolute thrill and pleasure.”
“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.”
Though she promises that she’s going to keep releasing new music even if she doesn’t go back on tour.
She told the crowd: “I will always write music and I will always put it out. And I hope that you’re always here.
“I might never see you again at a live show. Who knows? But I will remember this for the rest of my life.”
