Adele will finally have an opportunity to meet me on Saturday night. I’m sure she’s getting very excited about that prospect around about now. She’d probably be nervous, the poor love. I mean she’ll be meeting Min of Write of the Middle for goodness sake!! She must be beside herself!!
All jokes aside – YES, I’m going to Adele’s concert in Brisbane on Saturday night and NO, she doesn’t even know of me … yet!!
I mean Hello, even though it seems like it was a Million Years Ago, Don’t You Remember when you first heard her sing? It had been a while since I’d heard a voice that gave me goosebumps and sent me Rolling in the Deep deep deep abyss of replaying songs over and over again and wanting to learn all the words. Adele, I’d been waiting for Someone Like You for a long time. Someone who would blow me away and make me enjoy singing again – I’m Crazy For You!
Her first album ’19’ was released in January 2008. Her second album ’21’ was released in January 2011. It was with the release of this album that I became aware of Adele. The first song of hers that I ever heard was ‘Rolling in the Deep’. Her third album ’25’ was released in November 2015.
Following the release of ’21’ Adele took a hiatus from music in order to take some time to live a bit. It might have felt a bit like the Cold Shoulder but I was mature and thoughtful, not like When We Were Young so therefore I understood her need for some space and I did the best thing I could do which was to Send My Love and wish her an enjoyable break. All I Asked of her was that she come back with her beautiful voice for us to listen to and more of her wonderful songs, because Adele – I Miss You.
And in 2015 she did come back, and it was all Water Under The Bridge because we got to hear more of her beautiful voice singing the incredible new songs on the album called ’25’. She had also got married and had a baby!
And now here we are in March 2017 and Adele and I have the opportunity to meet! Now Adele, I Can’t Make You Love Me but I can certainly Make You Feel My Love and I’ll Be Waiting to feel the Skyfall when you sing on Saturday night. I’m sure your people will know where I’m sitting and come find me so your dreams can come true!
Our kids gave us tickets to see Adele (in Brisbane) for Christmas. I’m really looking forward to seeing her LIVE. There’s been a lot in the media here about the fact 60,000 people will be attending the concert on Saturday night and the expected traffic chaos and excessive burden on the public transport system, so my anxiety will be well and truly tested as I really don’t like crowds and chaos. I like space and order! If I can cope with the crowds and chaos then I will have gone out of my comfort zone and survived … all for you Adele!
I can’t pick a favourite song of hers but here’s one of my favourites.
Are you seeing Adele while she’s in Australia? Anyone else going to be at the Brisbane concert on Saturday Night (4 March)? Have you worked out how you’re getting there and home again? How are you in crowds?
