'Adele Live In New York City:' NBC Airing Hour-Long Radio City Music Hall TV Special Tonight
Adele concert tickets are hard to come by these days, so fans of the soulful British songstress might want to tune into NBC on Monday night at 10/9c. The network will be airing Adele Live in New York City, a special hour-long TV event that showcases the best moments of the ten-time Grammy Award-winning singer's recent concert in the Big Apple.
Taped last month at Radio City Music Hall, the show was Adele's first in the United States in over four years. The two-hour set list featured all the biggest hits from Adele's three chart-topping albums including classics like "Chasing Pavements," "Rolling in the Deep," "Set Fire to the Rain," and her most recent success, "Hello" the first single from her latest album 25.
Produced by Saturday Night Live's head honcho Lorne Michaels, the concert featured a glittering array of Hollywood A-listers in attendance such as Jennifer Lawrence, Steven Spielberg, Bradley Cooper, and Donald Trump. Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, whom Adele recently collaborated with on an acoustic rendition of Hello, gave the show's official introduction.
Adele has yet to announce plans for a stateside tour, but if it ends up being anything like her latest European outing, expect tickets to be a scarce commodity.
The four-month, 36-stop trek across Europe's major cities has already broken box office records with numerous fans reporting difficulty in securing their seats for the biggest show in town.
"According to European reseller, Ticketbis, some fans are already putting their tickets on the secondary market and purchases are averaging 255 euros ($269.14). Compared to the average ticket-price of her last tour and prices are seeing about a 200% increase from 85 euros ($89.71) a ticket," reports Forbes.
If you can't make it to Europe, it looks like catching this TV special is the next best thing.
