(2008–09)
Adele Live
(2011)

An Evening with Adele is the Debut concert tour by the British singer-songwriter Adele, in support of her debut album, 19. The tour was unusual in that it included few dates in the United Kingdom, Adele's home and the territory where 19 was most successful. Instead, the tour focused heavily on North America. Adele and the tour gained some notoriety when she cancelled tour dates in 2008 in order to spend time with her boyfriend, an incident she later expressed regret over.[1] One of the last performances on the tour took place at the historic Hollywood Bowl. Etta James was supposed to appear at the performance but cancelled at the last-minute due to illness and was replaced by Chaka Khan.[2] The last performance of the tour was at the North Sea Jazz Festival.[3]

An official tour book containing exclusive pictures and behind-the-scene information of the tour is available for purchase on Adele's official site.[4]
