With one of the most highly anticipated tours of the year, Adele will be performing at Pepsi Center on July 16 & 17, 2016. This is her first North American tour in five years and is in support of her third album 25 which was released in November to record breaking sales. 25 shot straight to number one in 100 countries around the globe and was the only album in history to sell over three million copies in one week. Born in North London, England, Adele always gravitated towards music but realized her true destiny at 15 when she discovered a collection of Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald at a local record shop. In high school, she cut a three-track demo for a class project that caught the attention of XL Recordings executives after hearing them on her My Space page, and she was signed to a record deal. Her debut album 19 named for her age when she began recording it, skyrocketed her to fame with lead singles “Hometown Glory” and “Chasing Pavements”. Adele followed up with 21 in 2011 anchored by “Someone Like You” and “Rolling in the Deep”, which placed her in history as one of the only artists ever besides the Beatles and 50 Cent to have two Top 5 singles and a set of Top 5 albums in the same week. 21 remained in the number one spot for 11 weeks breaking a record formerly held by Madonna for her album Immaculate Conception as solo female artist. With 25, she has dubbed her latest effort as a make-up album. On instagram she let her fans know, "My last record was a break-up record, and if I had to label this one, I would call it a make-up record. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. 25 is about getting to know who I've become without realizing. And I'm sorry it took so long but, you know, life happened."
