That year, Adele began hinting that she might never tour again.

The tour visited Australia and New Zealand in 2017, before wrapping with two sold-out concerts at London’s Wembley Stadium, June 28-29, 2017. “Adele Live 2016” finished fifth on Pollstar’s Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart 2016, with 1,530,196 tickets sold for a gross of $167.7 million. The tour also ranked fifth on the Top 200 North American Tours chart for that year, grossing $95.1 million with 852,303 tickets sold.

Towards the tour’s end, Adele hinted on several occasion that she might have had enough of touring, or at least of world touring. At the last of her three shows at Mt. Smart Stadium in Auckland before 40,000 fans, for instance, she tearfully told the crowd, “Touring isn’t something I’m good at … applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable. I don’t know if I will ever tour again. The only reason I’ve toured is you. I’m not sure if touring is my bag.”
Ahead of her two final performances at Wembley Stadium in June 2017, the she included a signed, handwritten note in the program stating, “I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home.”
Now that Adele has announced her return to the live stage at British Summer Time Hyde Park, her fans are eager to know if more live shows will follow. Her agent Lucy Dickins, WME’s co-head of music, wasn’t available for comment at press time. 
Adele announced her new Album, 30, in the beginning of October, followed by the release of its first single, “Easy On Me”, Oct. 15. ‘30’ will be Adele’s fourth album and her first new music since 2015.
