Last night, Adele kicked off a four-night residency at London’s Wembley Stadium for the conclusion of her tour in support of her most recent album, , and in a note distributed to attendees, she hints that this might be her last tour ever. She previously said this during her shows in New Zealand, as well. Here’s the note (via Billboard):
So this is it after 15 months on the road and 18 months of 25 we are at the end. We have taken this tour across UK + Ireland, throughout Europe, all over America and I finally got to go to Australia and New Zealand too. Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn’t suit me particularly well. I’m a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I’m dramatic and have a terrible history of touring. Until now that is! I’ve done 119 shows and these last 4 will take me up to 123, it has been hard out an absolute thrill and pleasure to have done. I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favourite artists have had on me live. And I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll tour again and so I want my last time to be at home.
Thank you for coming, for all of your ridiculous love and kindness. I will remember all of this for the rest of my life.
I love you. Goodnight for now.
She also served a touching tribute for the victims of the Grenfell fire and said that the Wembley shows will benefit those impacted by the fire:
