Adele announces Munich shows at her own pop-up stadium
Adele is playing four nights in Munich this August.
Adele has announced a series of shows in Munich this summer at her own custom pop-up stadium.
The 'I Drink Wine' singer is set to return to Europe for the first time in eight years with four shows on August 2, 3, 9, and 10 at Munich Messe, after getting her confidence back with her epic pair of shows at London's BST Hyde Park in 2022 and her Las Vegas residency.
Adele, 35, chose the German city as it's in the middle of Europe and she says it's a way to draw to a close this "beautiful phase of my life and career" amid her 'Weekends With Adele' shows in Sin City.
She announced on Instagram: "So a few months ago I got a call about a summer run of shows. I've been content as anything with my shows in London's Hyde Park and my residency in Vegas, so I hadn't had any other plans.
"However, I was too curious to not follow up and indulge in this idea – a one-off, bespoke pop-up stadium designed around whatever show I want to put on? Ohh!?
"Pretty much slap bang in the middle of Europe? In Munich? That's a bit random, but still fabulous! Right after the Euros? Come on England! With the Olympics next door? Go on Simone [Biles]! And some of my favourite artists playing shows too? Why...YES!!
"I haven't played in Europe since 2016! I couldn't think of a more wonderful way to spend my summer and end this beautiful phase of my life and career with shows closer to home during such an exciting summer. Guten Tag babes x. (sic)”
The Munich gig news comes after Adele teased that she would likely do a world tour when she releases her next album, though she admitted that's a long way off.
She told gig-goers at Vegas show on Saturday (27.01.24): “I just don’t think I’m gonna write an album for quite some time.
“But next time I do, I’ll come to wherever it is you live.”
