Demand Pushes Adele to Bigger Venues, New Album to Debut Atop Billboard 200

Adele may not like her newfound popularity but that isn’t stopping fans from demanding her. The British soul songstress, who kicks off her U.S. tour in May, was recently forced to change several dates to bigger venues to keep up with demand after her shows sold out in minutes.

On June 1, her show in Seattle, Washington will move from the intimate Showbox hall to the bigger Paramount, which seats more fans. She has also moved a show in Los Angeles on June 9 to the larger Palladium and added extra dates in New York.

Adele who hates playing larger venues recently admitted, “I can’t do arenas because I’m not (Lady) Gaga.”

’21,’ the latest release from Adele, is expected to debut at No. 1 next week on the Billboard 200 chart. The set is expected to shift 275,000 to 300,000 copies by week’s end on Sunday, Feb. 27.
