Adele announces Wembley Stadium shows for 2017

Adele has announced details of two Wembley Stadium shows. 

The singer will complete her world tour with two nights at the north London arena on June 29 and July 1 next year. Taking place a few miles from Tottenham, where the 28-year-old grew up, the gigs have been dubbed The Finale.

By the time she steps onto the Wembley stage, Adele’s first world tour will have seen her play to more than 2 million people across the UK, Europe, America, Australia and New Zealand.

Adele is touring in support of third album 25, which has sold 21m copies worldwide since its release 12 months ago. Back in February, at the BRIT Awards, she won awards for British Female Solo Artist, British Album Of The Year, British Single Of The Year and British Global Success. Adele headlined Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in June.

Earlier this week, after a gig in Phoenix, Arizona during which she reportedly announced she was expecting another baby, Adele posted on Instagram saying “I just finished my 107 shows in 10 months. 100% every night. I bloody smashed it, even if I do say so myself.”

Wembley’s operations director, Julie Harrington said: “We are delighted to welcome Adele to Wembley Stadium. She is a world-class artist and she will be playing at a world-class stadium. This is a huge coup for the stadium.”

The stadium's head of business development Jim Frayling added: “These shows promise to be one of those epic ‘I was there’ Wembley moments. The biggest artist in the world on her home turf at Wembley Stadium. We’ve been working on this for a long time and it’s great for everyone associated with the stadium that these shows are confirmed.”

Tickets for the Wembley shows are on general sale from Friday December 2 at 10am, while members of adele.com receive advance access to tickets from November 20 at 10.00am.
