Pop megastar, balladeer supreme and outspoken London icon Adele Adkins is back on stage, having smashed all kinds of records again with her latest album ‘25’. We gave it a two-star review (‘a bit dull’), but we’re more than prepared to admit that Adele’s massive lungs, spine-tinglingly soulful voice and innate stage presence make her an incredible live draw – which is why these dates at The O2 next spring will sell out quicker than you can say ‘Rolling in the Deep’.
I saw her concert at the O2 last night & it was mind blowing. Miss Adkins is quite simply phenomenal & a bonafide national treasure. Her voice is faultless, she has a classy catalogue of work but the best bit was her witty banter & infectious cackling in between songs. It felt like you were in the pub with your best mate rather than the cavernous O2 arena. Her personal anecdotes explaining how & why she wrote each song just made you fall in love with her a little bit more. Not ashamed to admit there were tears when she dedicated Make You Feel My Love to the people of Brussels. Possibly the best concert I have ever been to & an absolute privilege to spend an evening in her inimitable company
