The Grammy winner heads to New Zealand next, with shows at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
“Just before we go to the next song .. . excuse me, sir ? I know you work here, but could you stop telling people to sit down?” Adele said, catching the guard’s attention.
“This is a music show . If people can’t see, then they can stand up . And if you’re moaning about people dancing, then what the f**k have you come to a show for?
“If I see one more person get told to sit down, I swear to God.” The dressing down wasn’t the only unusual highlight for fans, with an unplanned proposal also taking place after Adele invited a man and his partner on stage after she saw him crying during her rendition of Hello.
