Watch Adele’s Live In New York City Concert Special

Last night, as she was getting ready to unleash her absurdly popular 25 album upon the world, Adele played a one-off show at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. It was her first real show in four years. NBC taped it for a concert special, and the network aired that special last night. (Quick aside: How many current musicians are able to command their own network-TV specials? Adele and Taylor Swift and that’s it, right? I don’t see any of the big four throwing an hour of prime-time at Drake or Katy Perry or whoever.) The live special included a few 25 tracks and a few older hits — “Set Fire To The Rain,” “Skyfall,” “Someone Like You,” “Rolling In The Deep.” Maybe it’s an indication of what she’ll be doing on her forthcoming North American arena tour. Below, watch the whole thing and have a look at the setlist.

01 “Hello”
02 “Set Fire To The Rain”
03 “All I Ask”
04 “Skyfall”
05 “Someone Like You”
06 “Million Years Ago”
07 “When We Were Young”
08 “Rolling In The Deep”

25 is out now on XL/Columbia. You will probably get at least one copy of it as a Christmas gift from a well-meaning relative.
