Adele returns to the Emerald City for back-to-back concerts at Key Arena

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Adele
July 25 and 26 (8pm)
Key Arena - sold out, both nights


If it seems like ages since Adele last performed in Seattle, you would be correct. Kind of. It's actually only been five years, though it feels like decades ago. The pop giant's previous appearance was at the Paramount Theatre on August 12, 2011, opening the show with 'Hometown Glory' and exiting with a pair of songs from her Grammy-winning album 21, 'Someone Like You' and 'Rolling in the Deep.' This time, she's performing two concerts at a much larger venue, Key Arena, and she has another album under her belt, the multi-platinum 25.

'Adele Live 2016' kicked off February 29 at Belfast's SSE Arena and completed its European run in late June. The North American leg of the tour began earlier this month in Minneapolis and will stop in 18 US cities and three in Canada, and finishes up in Mexico City. She recently announced an Australian extension of the tour for 2017.

Adele's superstar success took flight in 2009 with the release of 'Chasing Pavements,' the second hit from her debut album 19. 'Hometown Glory' was actually the leadoff single, but it only received radio airplay overseas. Though she had already made a name for herself, it was the Londoner's sophomore offering 21 that bolstered her to global fame. To date, Adele has sold over 100 million records around the world, easily putting her on the list of the best-selling artists of all time. Not bad for a woman who doesn't turn 30 for a couple more years.

From her earliest days, Adele has aligned herself with the LGBT community. In 2011, she discussed a teenage boy thanking her for helping him come out to his best friend and a guy he had a crush on, also gay, in an interview with The Advocate. In an interview last year with Time magazine, the power vocalist spoke positively about the remote possibility of her young son being gay. 'I can't wait to know who his best friends are going to be, who his girlfriend or his boyfriend is going to be or what movies he likes,' she said. 'Whatever my kid wants to do or be I will always support him no matter what.'

A month ago, while performing in Antwerp, Adele burst into tears as she dedicated her show to the victims of the Orlando massacre. 'The LGBTQ community, they're like my soulmates since I was really young, so I'm very moved by it,' she told a fan-packed stadium.

Both concerts at Key Arena sold out almost immediately when tickets went on sale in December. There is no supporting act booked for this tour, at least that I'm aware of, so expect Adele to go onstage close to the scheduled showtime. The performance will include about 18 songs from her catalog, including all the top hits. And if you're late (just letting you know), you'll miss out on hearing one of her biggest ballads; do give yourself enough time to get to the arena and locate your seats by 8 p.m.
