Glasto 16 : Adele’s EPIC [Swearing, Burping]Performance
Adele headlined the main stage at Glastonbury last night [June 25] and she was amazing OBVIOUSLY!
Opening her set with ‘Hello’ the crowd were delighted – thousands singing along. Her nerves seemed to get the better of her and with a quick explanation of “I don’t know what to say to you yet”, she started to sing ‘Rumour Has It’ from her second album, followed by ‘Love Me Again’ finishing with ‘One and Only’ – before she finally spoke.
“Oh my God. Oh my God. Hi,” she said. “This is the best f**king moment of my whole life. Oh my God…look at you, can you put the lights on [the audience] more, I want to see them? Glastonbury means the world to me. I’ve always wanted to do this my whole life – I’ve just been too scared. You don’t mind if I talk lots do you?” she asked. “I’ve been here a lot of times. I’ve lost myself a lot of times here. I’ve had some of the best times of my life here on a Saturday night here at Glastonbury.
She continued, “Hopefully you’re all drunk and off your faces – my set will go better then.”
Adele then went on to give an EPIC performance of her Bond theme ‘Skyfall’ – telling the crowd that she turned down Bond themes before agreeing to this one.
The set did have a few hiccups, particularly when a producer came onto the stage to stop the concert and ask the audience to form a path to help a seriously ill member of the audience receive medical attention.
Adele also had to restart a rendition of 25 track ‘River Lea’ because she was out of breath. “I’d rather sing better for you. I’m sorry,” she said. Her performance of the track was definitely worth the wait!
As emotions continued to run high a Brazillian fan [Maria] was asked onto the stage for a selfie, where Adele promptly burped in her face – blaming it on a ‘dirty-burger’ – only Adele could get away with that one…
