Adele is headed to Munich, Germany after wrapping her critically acclaimed Las Vegas residency this summer.
Following Wednesday’s announcement of four dates on Aug. 2, 3, 9 and 10, the singer has added more shows at Munich Messe on Aug. 14, 16, 23 and 24 due to overwhelming demand.

Adele will perform in “an open-air environment that has been exclusively created for these special shows,” according to a press release. “The bespoke arena will feature a combination of seated grandstands and standing areas with capacity for 80,000 people per night.” This marks the first time Adele has played mainland Europe since 2016.
Adele celebrated the announcement with a post on her Instagram. “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,” she wrote. “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! 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.”
Adele’s Vegas residency, “Weekends With Adele,” will wrap mid-June. Ticket registration for Adele’s Munich shows is now open on Adele.com. Fans will receive links to purchase on Feb. 6, with tickets going on sale beginning Feb. 7. General sale tickets will be available Feb. 9.
