Update (7/25/2016): Due to overwhelming (if unsurprising) demand, beloved songbird Adele has decided to fly back to Los Angeles for two additional nights in August in addition to the six nights she instantly sold out. Tickets for August 20 and 21 at the Staples Center will go on sale this Friday, so be prepared for the internet to break from the demand of desperate ticket-buyers, much the way your heart breaks when you listen to Adele's songs.
Adele's latest album, 25, has already made us cry, look longingly into the distance and yearn for long-lost loves that never existed. Now, the singer announced the dates for her North America tour, including six nights at Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles.
The dates listed on the tour's website are August 5, 6, 9, 10, 12 and 13. Tickets go on sale through the tour's website this Thursday, December 17, at 10am local time—and we recommend getting them as soon as possible. The singer is celebrating 25's record-breaking numbers, including selling 3 million copies in the first week and more than 1 million copies in the second week. So far the album has sold more than 5 million copies total.
Adele's six nights will one-up Taylor Swift's recent 1989 world tour, which spent five nights at Staples Center and broke the record of most sold out shows at the venue (16 total).
The North America tour starts on July 5 in Saint Paul and will wrap up on November 15 in Mexico City.
