Iwill always remember September 30th as one of the greatest nights of my life. The moment we’d been waiting for was finally here: behold our savior, Adele.
With the support of her amazing new album, 25 (which sold over 10 million copies in the US in under a year), she claimed the Bell Centre as her own for two nights in a row. The venue can hold up to 15,000 people, and there were no seats left empty by the time the concert started. Getting a ticket for the show was near impossible, seeing as close to 10 million people tried to obtain tickets while only 750,000 were available for the North American part of her worldwide tour.
Her signature eyeliner and mesmerizing eyes were all that the crowd could see on the big screens until… “Hello…” The crowd went wild. She went on to deliver bone-chilling vocals that resonated throughout the arena, and made you feel closer to her than you could ever imagine. Flawlessly hitting every note, she carried us through the night. Although her songs are choreographed by sadness, she knew how to make us laugh. She even took the time to invite lucky concert goers onstage and told us stories about her childhood and vacations.
I can safely say that this concert was the experience of a lifetime. I hope she doesn’t disappear for too long again.
