Adele, who is currently breaking records with her recently-released album 25, has an early holiday treat to the fans: she will soon be embarking on a tour.
The singer has previously expressed her stage fright—something that made her turn down a number of performances in big music venues, arenas, and festivals.
Watch the video announcement here.
“She experiences fear and a racing heart when facing large audiences and is afraid these reactions will cause her to run from the stage and disappoint countless fans,” said an article by Anxiety.com. “She recalled past experiences at shows in Amsterdam and Brussels when nerves led to vomiting and drove her to escape using a fire exit.”
This is Adele’s first tour in five years.
25 has sold more copied in ints first week than any other alum in history, and Adele only needed three days to do so. Three days ago, according to an article on Consequence of Sound, the album already sold 2.3 million copies. Her single “Hello” has been named as the most downloaded song ever on iTunes.
The album sales are expected to rise in the coming days. Industry forecasters estimate that it will sell up to 2.9 million copies before the week ends.
