Thamesbeat club girl turned platinum performer, Adele hints that stage fright may mean the demise of her touring days
You have heard Adele on the radio. You have perhaps seen her in concert. Her face decorates the landing pages of streaming platforms, her album covers, posters, and billboards. The reality? Adele feels vulnerable in the limelight. She's afraid on stage.
Millions of adoring fans flood the venues where she performs. They shed tears to 'Turning Tables' and have stomped along to 'Rolling in the Deep' since back in 2011. Now, on her 25 tour, some are questioning her next move.
@officialcharts Noooo :( :( :( My life is now worthless if i don't see her live singing.

According to The New Zealand Herald, Adele struggled to improvise during a rainy concert at the sold out Mt Smart Stadium last Thursday. Weather interfered with stage technology, causing disruptions throughout her performance.
"Touring isn't something I'm good at ... applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable. I don't know if I will ever tour again. The only reason I've toured is you. I'm not sure if touring is my bag," she announced amidst the downpour.
'Rumour Has It' this will be the last time we'll see her on stage. Don't worry though — she has four tour dates left at the end of June and into July at Wembley Stadium. The four performances have been aptly named The Finale on her official webpage.
