If you attend a live concert in the 21st century, it's almost guaranteed that someone in the audience will be filming it through a smartphone camera or another similar device.
But that doesn't mean that Adele appreciates the gesture: The singer admonished a fan for filming her concert on Sunday evening (May 29), stopping mid-sentence to remind the audience member that "I'm really here in real life."
During the tour stop in support of her smashingly successful 25, Adele did not mince words:
"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. You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera. 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."
Adele's firmness was drenched in civility—as one would expect—and it's logical to assume that the would-be video will not see the light of day. The diva's current global trek has been full of surprises like this, including an unexpected lyrical gaffe in Lisbon and a super romantic engagement announcement in Denmark.
