Adele has announced she will play in Europe for the first time since 2016, with four nights booked in Germany.
The Grammy-winning singer shared on social media that she will be performing in Munich’s Messe exhibition centre – which boasts a capacity of 80,000 – in a booking she called “a bit random”.
At the end of 2023, she was asked if she wanted to perform a summer run of shows in Germany, saying: “I’ve been content as anything with my shows in London’s Hyde Park and my residency in Vegas, so I hadn’t had any other plans.”
Adele explained however that she was “too curious to not follow up and indulge in this idea” to come back to Europe.
“A one-off, bespoke pop-up stadium designed around whatever show I want to put on? Ohh!?,” she said.
“Pretty much slap bang in the middle of Europe? In Munich? That’s a bit random, but still fabulous!
“Right after the Euros? Come on England! With the Olympics next door? Go on Simone! And some of my favourite artists playing shows too? Why…YES!! I haven’t played in Europe since 2016!”

She signed off the post saying “Guten Tag babes,” and shared a link where fans can register for tickets.
The ‘Someone Like You’ hitmaker will perform at Munich Messe on 2, 3, 9 and 10 August.
According to setlist.fm, which tracks live performances, Adele has played in Germany just 14 times.
Her last show in the country was on 15 May 2016, at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne. Her first ever was at the Stage Club in Hamburg back in 2008.
Adele is also performing the last leg of her Las Vegas residency Weekends With Adele, which runs through to mid-June.
Ticket registration for the Munich shows is open now at Adele.com and closes on 5 February. General sale then opens to the public on 9 February.
