The Best Night of My Life // Seeing Adele Live

19:37:00

If you follow me on twitter (hint: you should) you'll know that I went to Adele's concert last Sunday. It was amazing. I promised to do a post about it, and I figured since today is her 28th birthday, it was appropriate.


I used to love Adele as much as anyone else. I'd sing out loud when her hits came on, and didn't really listen to the new album unless it was on the radio. I was always charmed by her incredible voice, but I never considered her one of my idols. Over the past few months though, that has drastically changed. I've listened to her newest album on loop for a weeks, and I've watched every interview of her on youtube.


Of course, I was over the moon when my mum reminded me that we had tickets for her concert (we bought them in December, as my mum has always been a huge fan of her).

I can definitely say it's the best concert I've ever been to. This makes me whimper slightly, as the All Time Low one will always have a special place in my heart, but this was the first time I've ever really felt like my view on the world was shifted by a concert.


Her voice was, of course, powerful and filled the arena. It haunted me during the sad songs, and I felt my eyes filling with tears during Make You Feel My Love, as it has always reminded me of something very sad. She asked us all to hold up the light on our phones during this song, which just made it feel so surreal.


Also, she was on the stage for so long! It's a well known fact that Adele is a private person and avoids the spotlight, so I wasn't expecting her to be as friendly as she was. She was on the stage for over two hours, and it all felt so personal. She shared funny and embarrassing stories, and told us about her son and their fishing adventure in the fjord earlier that day. Her sassy comments made me laugh, and during When We Were Young, the screen behind her was a slideshow of childhood photos of her.


During the last song, which I think was Rolling in the Deep, the lights came on and confetti was blasted. At first it just looked like regular confetti, but I realised that it was small pieces of text. We gathered several of them, and they all have 'handwritten' lyrics and small pieces of text. These, along with my ticket, will definitely be going on my wall when I move.


I had such a great night. We were incredibly lucky to get tickets, and they also happened to be amazing seats. We were close to the stage, on the first row of seats in the stand. The arena housed 23,000 (Norway's biggest), and the tickets sold out in a few minutes. Everyone I mentioned the concert to were so jealous, that I felt slightly bad posting photos of it on instagram afterwards. Nevertheless, it was incredible, and a night I know for sure I'll never forget. I just love her that much.

To conclude this post, I'd like to ask you what the best concert you've ever been to was? If you've never been to one, who's someone you'd love to see live?

  3. Your photos are amazing, I especially love the confetti one! I know quite a few people who got to see her when she was touring the UK and they also absolutely loved it! Wish I could have gone to one of her shows, but I was on holiday. I'm glad you had such an amazing time :) xx

    1. Thank you, she really was! I know what you mean, I used ot hold my phone up through the majority of the concert and just snap away, but I've found that focusing on the camera for a few seconds at a time (just to set the lighting and the focus) makes the photos a LOT better and doesn't take too long!
