Less than a month after releasing her third album 25, Adele showcased the record-breaking project during NBC’s “Adele Live in New York City,” which aired on the network last night.
The one-hour special, taped last month at Radio City Music Hall, marked her first live performance in four years, and featured selections from her latest album as well as previous singles including “Skyfall,” “Rolling in the Deep,” and “Set Fire to the Rain.”
The British singer-songwriter, who broke the first-week sales record in the United States by passing the three-million mark, most recently announced the North American run of her stadium tour, which includes a whopping six-night stretch at both Los Angeles’ Staples Center and New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The Stateside leg follows a tour through Europe, which kicks off in late February and wraps in June.
Adele proved to be ratings gold for NBC, becoming the highest-rated concert special in 10 years with 11.2 million viewers.
