European concert dates
The vocalist disclosed her upcoming arrangement to have a customized temporary stadium in a southern German urban center, expressing in an Instagram update that she finds it “a tad unexpected.”
“A few months back, I received a call regarding a series of summer performances. Given my satisfaction with the shows at London’s Hyde Park and my residency in Vegas, I hadn’t considered any other engagements,” the post stated.
Nonetheless, my curiosity compelled me to pursue and entertain this notion – a unique, tailor-made pop-up stadium crafted for whichever performance I desire to stage? Oh!? Right in the heart of Europe? In Munich? That seems rather unexpected, but undeniably fantastic!” penned Adele.
The vocalist elaborated on several reasons behind scheduling the shows, slated for August 2, 3, 9, and 10, noting the proximity to the UEFA Euro 2024 European soccer championships in Germany and the 2024 Olympics in Paris.
“Right after the Euros? Come on England! With the Olympics next door? Go on Simone! And some of my favorite artists playing shows too? Why…YES!!,” Adele exclaimed.
“I haven’t performed in Europe since 2016! I couldn’t envision a more delightful way to spend my summer and conclude this wonderful phase of my life and career with shows closer to home during such an exhilarating summer,” she added. “Guten Tag babes x.”
Adele delayed her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas one day before its scheduled commencement in January 2022, citing COVID-19 as the reason for the impossibility of timely preparation.
The performances were rescheduled to take place from November 18, 2022, to March 23, 2023, with an additional set of dates later included. Subsequently, in October 2023, Adele unveiled a third and ultimate series of shows scheduled from January 19 to June 15 of the present year, just six weeks ahead of the Munich concert dates.
