Adele top-secret One Night Only concert
Posted by Pendar on December 12, 2022
The British superstar is making her long-awaited comeback after six years of no new music with her upcoming album release, 30, which was celebrated tonight on a star-studded CBS special. The special also included an in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey at her gorgeous Montecito mansion. Intertwined with her sit-down, the mom of one performed a gorgeous concert at Los Angeles’ Griffith Observatory. During a sunset set, the 33-year-old belted out her biggest hits, new and old, in a stunning black dress with the Hollywood sign on display in the background.
In October, Adele performed her first concert in over four years at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. It was filmed for Adele One Night Only, a two-hour concert and interview special with Oprah Winfrey that aired Sunday night on CBS. Though the audience was largely filled with famous friends like Drake, Lizzo, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Degeneres, Adele invited a lucky couple to the intimate show as they took a huge step in their relationship. Adele began her show just as the sun setting, so once it was dark out she paused the show to tell the audience what was about to happen. A man named Quentin had written into a decoy TV show looking for help proposing to Ashley, his partner of seven years. The show’s producers helped facilitate a romantic day for the couple that would lead to a big surprise for Ashley.
They had a romantic date that brought them to the park below Griffith Observatory for a picnic. After their meal, Quentin gave his girlfriend a blindfold and noise-canceling headphones (“kinky,” Adele remarked) and led her to the show. Adele instructed the audience to remain quiet as the pair walked to the front. She said yes. In a new teaser for the Grammy-winning singer’s upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey, Adele is giving viewers a feel for her “One Night Only” concert TV special, which heralds her “comeback” after a six-year hiatus. “You’ll hear a lot of older songs, and then four new songs,” the British balladeer says in a new clip released Wednesday.
Part star-studded concert event, part sit-down interview with Winfrey, the special celebrates the pop musician’s biggest hits and previews her forthcoming album, “30.” Adele and Winfrey will unpack the happenings of Adele’s life over the past few years in the two-hour primetime event when it airs Sunday on CBS.Glimpses from the concert show Adele clad in a voluminous black evening gown, singing award-winning hits “Rolling in the Deep” and “Skyfall,” and her new single, “Easy on Me,” as well as bantering with the audience.
A number of famous faces were in attendance, including producer Tyler Perry, actor Gabrielle Union and husband and NBA star Dwyane Wade, singer Lizzo and late-night host James Corden. Adele even calls out Lizzo for upstaging her with her own floral ensemble. The interview, which comes on the heels of her splashy Vogue covers, is also expected to address her life after divorce, weight loss and her son — all topics she explores on the new album, which arrives Nov. 19. Winfrey, whose bombshell interview with British royals Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, pulled off a a ratings coup earlier this year, tells Adele that she was interested in interviewing her because she’s “always interested in people who are willing to speak their truth.”
Looking every bit the classic Hollywood superstar, British singer Adele’s two-hour CBS special called Adele: One Night Only premiered on Sunday night. The prerecorded event featured an interview with Oprah Winfrey and an intimate concert performance of old hits and new songs from the singer’s upcoming album, 30, set to be released on Nov. 19. Here is everything you need to know about Adele’s glamorous performance, her first album in six years, her weight loss and her recent divorce.
Performing at the iconic Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, Adele sang 10 songs, including four new tracks from 30, her upcoming album: Hold On; Love Is A Game; and the lead singles Easy On Me and I Drink Wine. It was an intimate but star-studded affair, with attendees such as Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio, Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Ellen DeGeneres and Lizzo spotted in the audience. About midway through the special, the singer hushed her audience so that a fan could surprise his girlfriend onstage with a marriage proposal. To the delight of her audience, she serenaded the engaged couple with her cover of the Bob Dylan-written Make You Feel My Love.
During the singer’s exclusive sit-down interview with Oprah, she admitted that she “kept the alcohol industry alive” in the wake of her split from ex-husband Simon Konecki — but eventually stopped drinking completely. The former couple were married in 2018 and separated a year later, which Adele said was “embarrassing,” as it felt like she couldn’t make her marriage work. “I’ve been obsessed with a nuclear family my whole life because I never came from one,” the singer said, in reference to her father’s absence. She added that she’d always been “fascinated” by alcohol as her dad struggled with substance abuse.
Explaining why she divorced her husband, the singer said that she wanted to be the “happy version” of herself in front of their nine-year-old son. She noted that while many tend to stay in difficult marriages for a child’s sake, leaving one can be an equal act of love. “I was really ignoring myself for a long time, which was wild to me when I realized it.” She added that she sometimes feels “selfish” for “dismantling” her son’s life for her own happiness, but believes he would be “furious” with her if she stayed in an unhappy relationship. Her album 30 is partially a way of explaining her divorce to her child; the record is dedicated to him, but the songs are about her life.
