Adele certainly knows how to kickstart a tour. Just over one month into her first set of shows in five years, the lovable Brit has already spurred a slew of headline-making moments amid her massive, 105-date world trek in support of her 2015 smash album 25. From touching surprises to twerking fails, here are the highlights thus far.
Surprising a terminally ill fan at home
When Tracey Gibney learned Adele would be stopping by Belfast’s SSE Arena on tour, she started a social media campaign to convince the star to send a message to her daughter, a terminally ill 12-year-old named Rebecca who is blind and suffers from both cerebral palsy and epilepsy. Adele upped the ante by showing up at their home for a super sweet surprise visit. “My daughter got to meet the person that she loved and that’s what I’ll always take with me for the rest of my life…. She was really lovely,” Gibney told The Belfast Telegraph.

While performing “All I Ask” at a Birmingham set, the sound cut out mid-song. It’s clear Adele didn’t notice the mishap, but her incredible audience immediately jumped in to fill the silence. “The sound went off? The PA f—ing cut off?” she shouted, laughing afterward. “So you guys had a private concert down in the front.”
Sharing the stage with a young fan
Adele made one lucky concertgoer’s night when she brought her onstage for a quick chat. Turns out, it was the young girl’s first concert, and Adele’s kind gesture brought her to tears.
