Adele is to perform an additional two shows at London's Wembley stadium after selling out two nights at the 90,000-capacity venue in just 30 minutes
Adele has announced two extra shows at London's Wembley stadium after her two gigs sold out in just 30 minutes.
The 'Rolling In The Deep' hitmaker announced last week she would perform at the 90,000-capacity venue on June 29 and July 1 next year, but following a huge demand when tickets went on sale on Friday (02.12.16) morning, she has added a pair of shows at the venue on June 28 and July 2.
Tweets from Wembley Stadium read: "GREAT NEWS @Adele has announced two extra nights at #Wembley. She will perform on Weds 28 June & Sun 2 July! More info to come soon!
"Information on when and how to purchase tickets for the extra @Adele nights will be forthcoming soon. Please check here for updates. (sic)"
The 'Hello' singer announced her 'Finale' gigs in a hilarious black and white video of herself singing a slightly amended version of football song 'Three Lions' - which was recorded by The Lightning Seeds and comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner which soundtracked the England team's journey to the semi-finals of the Euro 96 tournament.
In the clip, Adele jogged towards the camera and sang: "She's coming home, she's coming home, she's coming..."
The out of breath songstress - who accidentally hit herself in the face with a football as she jogs - then broke off from the tune to exclaim "good job I'm not a footballer", before adding: "She's coming home. That's right, I'm doing two nights at Wembley Stadium!"
Adele - who wore a scarf of her beloved team Tottenham Hotspur in the clip - then successfully headed a ball in the air and walked off humming the theme tune to BBC football highlights TV show 'Match of the Day'.
The shows will follow a tour in support of her latest album '25' of Australia and New Zealand scheduled for next spring, which will give Adele the experience of performing in stadiums before her two Wembley concerts.
