Fancy subbing us 'till payday, Adele?

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

There’s no question about it - Adele is our spirit animal. From her unforgettable rapping on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, to that time she accidentally burped in a fan’s face at Glastonbury, she literally makes our lives.

Everyone has been talking about her Grammys antics this week, thanks to her phenomenal scoop of awards, as well as the fact that she apparently broke one of them in two and offered half of it to her pal, Beyonce. It was quite literally Mean Girls meets real life.

Oh, and she confirmed she has already married Simon Konecki in a secret ceremony.

And days later, everyone is still talking about the singer from Tottenham. But this time, it’s because the outrageous amount of money she has earned from touring has been revealed and it may actually make your eyes water.

According to The Mirror, Adele made an unbelievable $500,000 per night when she was on tour.


For us Brits that’s roughly £403,425 - and £403,420 more than is currently in our bank account.

The numbers were released by her company, Remedy Touring, who also made a cool £11.5 million in profit between October 2015 and April 2016.

Yeah, same.

A source said: ‘Given this was Adele’s first ever world tour, her earnings really are incredible.

‘If you break it down, she was making more than half a million every single night. The latest accounts just go up until April, when she was only a few months into the tour, which make it all the more astounding.

‘Adele was selling out arena after arena every night so her income would definitely have shot up at the same rate throughout the rest of the year.’

It makes her one of the highest paid performers ever.

Fab news for Adele! For everyone else who is counting down the days until payday – enjoy your beans on toast.
