Adele says her current tour might be her last

Adele

Adele hinted that she might never tour again in a handwritten note placed in the audience programs at her recent Wembley Stadium shows in London, the last stop on her 2017 tour, Rolling Stone reports.

I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home,” she wrote.

In the note, which a fan posted on Instagram, the 29-year-old English star described the trials of her marathon tour in support of her 2015 album “25.”

In total, Adele will have played 123 shows when she finishes her tour in London on July 2. 

💌😢😭✒❤Photo by Traci @tracii_m Translation by @wannabeadkins Adele @Adele’s letter from her your book! “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 artist have had on me live. And I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll ever 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. Love you. Goodnight for now” ❤️Adele #Adele #Adelettes #AdeleLive2017

Adele previously had to stop touring in 2011 when she underwent throat surgery to stop “repeated hemorrhaging” from her damaged vocal cords. 

Though her album “25” was released in 2015, it went on to be the best-selling album of 2016, and it has sold over 10 million copies in the United States alone.
