Do Not Film Adele During A Concert Unless You Want To Get Called Out

May 31, 2016 / Posted by:

On Sunday night, Adele taught one woman in the audience of her concert a very important lesson: you can say goodbye to the idea of recording her performance and getting away with it. During a show in Verona, Italy Adele spotted a woman in the crowd doing what many of us who have attended concerts in the past few years have been witness to. She was filming Adele’s performance. Maybe that lady is an aspiring Martin Scorsese and this was her attempt at making the Adele equivalent of The Last Waltz, I don’t know. Regardless, Adele Adkins doesn’t play with people who are watching her belt out musical feelings through a tiny screen, so she called her ass out.

In case you can’t hear, Adele says:

“Yeah, I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera, because I’m really here in your life, and you can enjoy it in real life. 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 lot of people outside that couldn’t come in.”

If this whole singing thing doesn’t work out, Adele should become a middle school teacher. Because that was some pitch-perfect “Oh, you’re in trouble now” teacher tone. I watched that through my computer, and I still sat up straight and got scared she was going to call my parents.

So that lady got shit for recording Adele. On the downside, she probably spent the rest of the concert trying not to make eye contact with those around her. But on the upside, she had a real one-on-one moment with Adele. With eye contact! You can’t tell me that there wasn’t at least a dozen Daydreamers in that audience that were seething with jealousy. “I’m recording the show too, you know. Why don’t you acknowledge me, queen?!?!
