Adele has been on her world tour for her Grammy-winning third album, 25, for over a year, and in the process, she's brought the world a flood of both hilarious and heartbreaking moments. But all great things must come to an end—Adele performed the last show of her whirlwind tour on Sunday night, and according to the singer herself, she might never embark on another ever again.
The New Zealand Herald reports that she said during the final show of her tour in Auckland that this might be her last tour. Like, ever, for the rest of time.
"Touring isn't something I'm good at," she revealed to the 40,000-plus crowd. "Applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable. I don't know if I will ever tour again. The only reason I've toured is you. I'm not sure if touring is my bag."
Though this news is nothing short of heart-wrenching, it shouldn't be all that surprising. In September, rumors began circulating that Adele's 25 tour would be her last for at least 10 years. Last year, sources told The Sun that the singer would put a pause on traveling so she could be around to raise her young son, Angelo. "Angelo is the number one priority for Adele," the sources said. "He is the most important thing in her life. She has brought him everywhere with her on tour but as he is starting school next year, he won’t be able to join her anymore. Adele doesn’t want to miss a moment of Angelo growing up and it’s an easy decision for her to give up touring for him."
Still, Adele said at her New Zealand show last night that this tour was "my greatest accomplishment in my career," a statement she said while reportedly bursting into tears.
