Adele has announced her first live shows in mainland Europe in eight years.

On Wednesday morning, the 16-time Grammy winner announced she would see out the latest era of her career with a string of live shows in Munich, Germany.

The Easy On Me singer revealed these four dates are set to take place on 2, 3, 9 and 10 August in a custom-built stadium designed specifically for her “one-off” shows.

She explained: “So a few months ago I got a call about a summer run of shows. I’ve been content as anything with my shows in London’s Hyde Park and my residency in Vegas, so I hadn’t had any other plans.

“However, I was too curious to not follow up and indulge in this idea – a one-off, bespoke pop-up stadium designed around whatever show I want to put on? Ohh!? Pretty much slap bang in the middle of Europe? In Munich? That’s a bit random, but still fabulous!

“Right after the Euros? Come on England! With the Olympics next door? Go on Simone! And some of my favourite artists playing shows too? Why…YES!! I haven’t played in Europe since 2016!”

Adele continued: “I couldn’t think of a more wonderful way to spend my summer and end this beautiful phase of my life and career with shows closer to home during such an exciting summer.”

“Guten Tag babes,” she signed off her message.

Event organisers Live Nation teased: “Based at Munich Messe, Adele will perform in an open-air environment that has been exclusively created for these special shows.

“The bespoke arena will feature a combination of seated grandstands and standing areas with capacity for 80,000 people per night.”

Since the release of her Grammy-winning fourth album 30 in 2021, Adele performed two shows at London’s Hyde Park and launched her ongoing Weekends With Adele residency in Las Vegas, which is due to come to an end in June.

The residency had been due to launch almost a year earlier than it did, but was infamously pushed back as a result of production delays and the Covid pandemic.
