After almost three months since cancelling her North American tour due to severe case of laryngitis, British soul singer Adele resumed her trek Tuesday (August 9) at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver.
She kick off her set by dedicating her song “Hometown Glory” to her birthplace, Tottenham, which was attacked by rioters following the fatal shooting of a local man on Thursday (August 4). She told the crowd, “I have to sing this one for my hometown. London is under attack by a bunch of idiots.”
Adele also paid tribute to her friend, the late Amy Winehouse, who died last month. Admitting Winehouse “was a big part of her life,” she sang a heartfelt rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love.”
The “Rolling in the Deep” hitmaker will be back on stage this Sunday in Berkley, CA. Visit Ticketmasters for full tour schedule.
