Adele kicked off her 25 world tour—which has dates through Nov. 15 so far—on Monday night (Feb. 29) in Belfast, Northern Ireland. E! Online reports that a woman who had only semi-successfully proposed to her boyfriend prior to the concert got a do-over from the stage. 

Adele heckled the noncommittal fiancé-to-be, saying, "You have to say a proper yes, bruv!" E! goes on:

"After urging the crowd to yell at the man, whose name happened to be Neil, he finally said yes, and Adele freaked out. Bonus, it looks like she'll be going to the wedding, too. 'Essex? That's down the road from me,' she said. 'I'll come.'"

According to the Guardian, Adele let her fans know she was nervous as hell prior to the tour kickoff. “I’ve been fucking shitting myself all day. Bad bowel movements. I’ve had to have an Imodium,” she said.

For "Set Fire to the Rain," the pre-encore finale, Adele sang under a downpour:

Adele's 25 world tour hits the U.S. on July 5 in Saint Paul, Minn. Almost every city has back-to-back concerts, with New York and Los Angeles getting six-night stands. See the North American dates here and the European list here.
