Adele hinted to fans at Wembley Stadium that her current tour may be her last
Before the singer played London’s Wembley Stadium on Wednesday she made the shock revelation that she could quit the stage for good.
In a handwritten note buried inside the programme the Hello singer, 29, wrote: “I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again… I wanted my last time to be at home.”
After the news many took to social media to vent their disappointment.
One fan tweeted: “I don’t get this, she’s amazing touring. Why should she quit?” Another wrote: “I can’t believe she’s doing this to us. If Sir Mick Jagger is a million years old and he still tours, she has no excuse!”
One particularly dramatic fan said: “I love Adele so much I could probably give my life just to see her live once but apparently there’s no plans for her touring ever again.”
Wednesday night’s show saw the first of four Wembley gigs played by the Tottenham-born singer, making up the aptly named The Finale of her mammoth 123-date, 15-month world tour.
Playing to 98,000 fans Adele broke U2’s record for the biggest crowd at the venue. “For someone who was terrible at touring and couldn’t get past 40 shows without having a breakdown it’s not bad going,” said the singer, who plays her final show this weekend.
“On Sunday I’m going to go wild. I’m going to smoke fags, I’m going to drink whisky.”
As fireworks lit up Wembley, Adele, who has son Angelo, four, with husband Simon Konecki, 43, added: “Come Monday I’m just going to be a mum and I can’t wait.”

JUDY MURRAY believes son Andy was only truly accepted as a tennis superstar after winning Wimbledon.
Despite winning Olympic gold and finishing runner-up at the All England Club prior to his long-awaited first triumph in 2013, mum Judy doesn’t think Andy, 30, was ever fully validated beforehand.
“Nothing we did would be good enough until Andy won Wimbledon. It was always the big question hanging in the air,” the 57-year-old tells the August issue of Good Housekeeping.
“It wasn’t going to matter that he had been the runner-up the year before or had won the Olympic title. He was never going to be fully accepted for the great player he is unless he won…
