Adele Laurie Blue Adkins—known simply around the world as Adele—has rapidly become one of the most successful musicians, not just of her era but of all time. Since first signing with her record label in 2006, the British singer/songwriter has only released 3 albums, yet she’s gone on to sell more than 100 million copies, win 15 Grammy Awards, and be listed as number 5 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music. Featuring soulful hits such as “Rolling in the Deep,” “Turning Tables,” and “Set Fire to the Rain,” Adele’s second studio album, 21, currently holds the record for the longest-running number 1 album by a female solo artist on any US or UK chart. She’s even won Academy and Golden Globe awards for “Skyfall,” the theme song featured in the 2012 James Bond film of the same name. Given Adele’s talent and international acclaim, it’s no surprise that tickets for her concerts disappear in the blink of an eye.
Born in London in 1988, Adele later went on to attend the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology, where she was classmates with the likes of Leona Lewis and Jessie J. Following graduation, a friend posted Adele’s 3-song demo on the social media site MySpace, which garnered tons of attention and ultimately led to her getting signed by XL Recordings. In 2007, she released her debut single “Hometown Glory,” and, by the next year, she put out her first studio album and began selling out concerts across North America and Europe. She toured again in 2011 in promotion of 21, and yet again in 2016 for her third album, 25. The latter was so popular that 10 million people attempted to buy tickets for the North American leg of the tour—a figure that’s over 1,000 percent more than the number of tickets available. Keep your eyes peeled for when the songstress hits the road again, as Adele tickets are sure to sell out just as fast.
