As well as sharing a touching and tearful moment with her fans at the end of the gig, which took place in New York last month, she also let them in on a secret surrounding her brand new ballad, All I Ask.

The track has been hailed as one of her most heartbreaking songs yet, after it was released online earlier in the year.


But the 27-year-old songstress admitted that she struggles to sing it live after surgery on her vocal chords resulted in a changing vocal range. 

After performing the song, which she co-wrote with Bruno Mars, she joked with the crowd, ‘It’s better on record.’

Oh, Adele. How we love your wit and charm.

The 25 singer explained: ‘It is, it’s f***ing, it’s really hard to sing. I had vocal surgery and then suddenly I could sing higher, I could sing lower, I could do whatever you wanted me to do.

‘As soon as I’m in front of you lot, I just f**k myself.’

Adele also pulled out her famous break-up anthem, Someone Like You, for an emotional rendition.


But the singer was quick to tell her audience that the song has taken on a different meaning, due to her happiness with partner Simon Konecki and their two-year-old son Angelo.

She opened up, ‘I don’t sing this from the same place anymore.

‘I sing it from an amazing place because of my man who is here tonight – and I love you – and this is the first show that he’s ever seen me do!’

Aw. She never fails to bring a tear…
