Adele watching her own 2016 Glastonbury headline set after '5 ciders' is goals
Adele fans rejoiced tonight [Saturday 27 June 2020] as the superstar’s triumphant Glastonbury 2016 performance was screened on BBC Two.
And among them was one very special fan – Adele herself – who tuned in to watch her epic performance, telling fans she was ‘5 ciders in’.
The singer shared a photo of her in her pyjamas with a hand fan, before changing into the iconic outfit – proving she’s kept her Glasto dress since 2016.
The crown jewel of the BBC’s throwback coverage – aired on what would have been the weekend of Glasto 2020 (damn coronavirus) – immediately provoked a huge response on social media.
And not least for the star’s famous penchant for bad language – including the moment she asked the crowd: ‘Have any of you had to do a p***?’
(‘The BBC had to give a warning about my potty mouth!’ she later added. ‘Muse didn’t get that!’).
‘I love Adele. Sings like Billie Holiday, talks like Barbara Windsor,’ said one fan.
Said a second: ‘Adele’s songs are so wrapped up in the 2 big heartbreaks of my life that I’m sat here needing a hug (and wine, why don’t I have wine in the house).’
Another added: ‘Mad how Adele bossed Glastonbury in front of 100,000 people with 20 songs essentially calling her fella a d**khead instead of just going on WhatsApp like everyone else. V impressive stuff.’
The 95-minute set kicked off with global hit Hello from Adele’s last album 25, before climaxing with her signature song: Someone Like You, from 21.
One fan called the set: ‘Unreal. Still heartbroken at the cancelled Wembley show 3 years ago that I still have the tickets for in my bedside table. Forever hoping they’ll be rescheduled one day.’
Another said: ‘@Adele just [rewatching] your @glastonbury performance from 2016. God’s your amazing live. I cannot imagine what it felt to be on the pyramid stage in front of 150,000 plus people.’ (sic)
Next, can ITV re-screen her best Brits moments – including that performance of Someone Like You, and the time she flipped the bird while accepting an award?
So many classic moments!
In other Adele news, it has been reported that her comeback album will be supported by a £100m pound tour.
The mum-of-one, whose other hits include Send My Love (To Your New Lover) and Skyfall, has sold over 120 million records worldwide.
