Having just wrapped up her debut tour of Australia and New Zealand, Adele has revealed that she doesn’t know if she will ever tour the world again.
Last night, at the end of her final 2017 New Zealand show in Auckland, Adele told the crowd that touring just isn’t her thing.
“Touring isn’t something I’m good at… applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable,” she said (via NZ Herald).
“I don’t know if I will ever tour again. The only reason I’ve toured is you. I’m not sure if touring is my bag.”
A teary Adele called her current tour “my greatest accomplishment in my career”, before thanking the crowd for their support.
“It’s changed my life. I understand why I do it,” she said.
Earlier this month, Adele’s tour promoter Michael Coppel told News Corp Australia, “We may never see her again… It’s impossible to tell what happens next. Then the future’s an open book.”
Adele is set to perform a handful of shows at London’s Wembley Stadium in June and July, which are being billed as ‘The Finale’. After that, as Coppel says, the future is unclear.
Over 600,000 people turned out to watch Adele perform on her debut Australian tour, with 200,000 people watching her over two nights in Sydney.
