Adele will star in an ITV concert later this month to celebrate the release of her new album, ’30’.

It was already confirmed that Adele would be featuring on a televised special in the US including an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Now it’s been revealed that ‘An Audience With Adele’ will air on ITV on November 21.

The special show will include a performance from Adele recorded at the London Palladium.

Adele will of course be performing tracks from the new album, as well as some of her greatest hits.

The audience will be a specially-invited group that includes her close family and friends.

ITV also confirmed that the audience will include Adele’s “own personal heroes and heroines, fellow musicians, artists, actors, sportsmen, sportswomen and more”.

Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV, said: “As one of the world’s most in-demand stars, we are beyond thrilled to bring this one-off night to ITV. Adele is a remarkable artist and this will be a very special event.”

Adele’s latest album will be released two days before the concert, on November 19.

It’s her first new music since 2015’s ’25’, and the star has already revealed much of the album is dealing with her divorce from now ex-husband Simon Konecki.

She said she hopes some of the songs on the album will help explain the situation to their young son, Angelo.

The other televised special in the US will air a week earlier. Her chat with Oprah and performance for ‘Adele: One Night Only’ is scheduled for November 14 on US network CBS.

The American special will see Adele performing at the Los Angeles Griffith Observatory.

Fulwell 73 Productions is producing both specials. Ben Winston from the company wrote on Instagram: “I grew up loving ‘An Audience With’ specials on ITV – so to be coming back to London to produce this, with a one of a kind artist – the incredible Adele, is literally a dream come true.”

Fans were thrilled when the 12-song tracklist for ’30’ was released, particularly for a track called ‘I Drink Wine’.

Adele previously said: “It was my ride or die throughout the most turbulent period of my life. When I was writing it it was my friend who came over with a bottle of wine and a takeaway to cheer me up.

“My wise friend who always gives the best advice… the friend who’d stay up all night and just hold my hand while I’d sob relentlessly not knowing why.”

These televised specials will also give fans an idea of what to expect when Adele plays two concerts in Hyde Park next year.
