Global superstar ADELE will visit Australia and New Zealand for the very first time in February and March, 2017 to perform a series of special stadium concerts in a unique 360º in-the-round production. Designed to create intimacy, the tour venues will feature reserved seating on both the playing arenas and the grandstands.
Live Nation have now confirmed that Adele will play Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on Thursday, March 23.
Having broken album sales records worldwide and with in excess of two million albums sold in Australasia, the multiple Grammy, Brit, Oscar and Golden Globe winner is on the cusp of completing her 107 date sold-out Live 2016 tour which has taken her all over the UK, Europe and North America. The tour has been hailed by critics and fans alike.
“It was a pure Adele moment: a pop triumph immediately brought to earth by shared human frailty. Adele’s gifts could separate her from more ordinary humans. Instead, she forges bonds.” – New York Times, USA
“A one-on-one conversation amid 18,000 or so other folks: Combined with her remarkable voice, it’s that flair for intimacy on a grand scale that’s driven Adele to the top. She’s a conveyor of relatable emotion at a moment when pop seems defined by concept and style.” – Los Angeles Times, USA
“That’s Adele, putting on a big night out but making it seem like a deeply personal moment… Truly, a diva for the people” – The Times, UK
