An Audience with Adele: Setlist, Performers, Spoilers
An Audience with Adele is part of the long-running An Audience with… series that has been airing in the UK since the Eighties. The popular series features a notable performer singing their tunes and chatting with fans in an intimate setting, and past installments have featured everyone from Elton John to the Spice Girls.
It was so much fun, people were wild, I was reunited with my favourite teacher from school when I was a teenager, Scary Spice was there, my fans were there and it was just the best, knees up of a night 🇬🇧
— Adele (@Adele) March 19, 2022
Speaking of the Spice Girls, Adele revealed on Twitter that “Scary Spice” (a.k.a. Mel B) was in the audience for her special. The special also went viral when it was first released last fall for — spoiler alert — featuring a reunion between Adele and her high school English teacher. The tearful exchange began after Adele was asked by actress Emma Thompson about someone who had made an impact on her, and the singer opened up about her teacher, Ms. McDonald.
The one-off concert, which was executive produced by Adele herself, also features a setlist of ten songs, including her latest hit “Easy on Me,” along with fan favorites like “Hello” and “Rolling In the Deep.” While ten songs were featured on the initial airing of An Audience with Adele, the singer reportedly recorded three other songs that were cut for time — it’s not clear whether those songs, which include the fan favorite “When We Were Young,” will be included on the NBC rebroadcast or Peacock stream.
An Audience with Adele airs tonight on NBC at 9pm ET. You can stream it the next day on Peacock.
