Adele Pauses Concert Several Times To Check In On Fan Safety

TODAY

Adele is proving that “the show must go on” is not always the right attitude. First, she proved this by tearfully postponing her Las Vegas residency “Weekends with Adele” because she claimed the show wasn’t ready. In Adele’s opinion, it’s not worth putting on a show that’s not as good as it should be. This was a difficult decision for her to make, and it was a decision that literally brought her to tears.

Now, Adele is once again showing that even when the show is up to par, it’s important to be willing to stop the show if necessary. The singer was performing at the British Summer Time Hyde Park music festival when she abruptly stopped singing. She was about to perform the song “Skyfall,” but she noticed something happening in the crowd that was more important to her than finishing the song.

Adele told the band to “stop” and then she walked down the stage telling security that it looked like one of the fans in the audience needed help. She didn’t resume singing again until she was confident that security that reached the fan. Watch the video below to learn more about this incident.

Many fans were recording Adele’s performance on their phones when she stopped the concert. One fan shared a slightly longer video of Adele stopping the show. This fan wrote, “Just wanna say mad respect to Adele for stopping the show and making a scene when she thought someone was in trouble and needed help from security. That was a crowd of 65,000+ and she still did it. it really is that easy.”

Does it surprise you that Adele noticed that someone in the crowd needed assistance? Do you think more performers should take a lesson from Adele and be willing to postpone shows and stop concerts?
