When Adele broke through into the music industry, she did so breaking records. Her debut album, 19, went 8x platinum in the UK and 3x platinum in the US. Although it gave rise to singles like “Make You Feel My Love” and “Chasing Pavements”, it was her second studio album, 21, that blew us all away and became the world’s best-selling album of the 21st century. It’s clear, then, that if Candlelight is going to pay tribute to pop stars, Adele has to be on the program.

“Someone Like You” who is a big fan of Adele doesn’t need to be told that the singer-songwriter has amassed 15 Grammy awards, 12 Brit awards and broken tour attendance records around the world. But, what you do need to be told is that her songs, from “Hometown Glory” through to “When We Were Young” as well as “Love Is A Game” will be given the Candlelight treatment.
And, of course, you can go “Rolling In The Deep” as well as “Set Fire To The Rain” when surrounded by hundreds of candles at this dreamy, intimate performance. The early Gothic-styled 19th Century chapel will be radiating and those in the audience enveloped by light and sound for what is bound to be a special night out.
Although we won’t get to listen to the phenomenal range of Adele’s voice, we will get to experience the soaring melodies she writes thanks to pianist Sueli Tang.
The Candlelight tribute to Adele takes place on Wednesday 7 December at 7pm and 9pm. With doors opening 30 minutes prior to each performance, audience members will be able to step into the stunning atmosphere to sit back and relax before the magical sounds of one of the most respected and inspiring international artists fill the room.
