Watch Adele Call Out A Fan For Using a Video Camera

2 minute read

During a recent stop on her tour, Adele told off a fan for filming the show with a video camera attached to a tripod.

While addressing the crowd, the singer called out the fan for trying to turn the live show in a home movie. “Yeah, I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera because I’m really here in real life,” she said as she pointed to the woman in the crowd. “You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera.”

Adele continued: “Can you take your tripod down? This isn’t a DVD, this is a real show. I’d really like you to enjoy my show because there’s lots of people outside that couldn’t come in.”

During another recent live show, Adele was caught on camera apparently forgetting the lyrics to one of her songs.

The singer also recalled meeting Bruce Springsteen recently, calling him “a gentleman” after he loaned her his coat.

The singer unveiled the video for her new single ‘Send My Love (To Your New Lover)’ at the Billboard Music Awards earlier this month (May).
