Adele sang a cover of Bonnie Raitt's 'I Can't Make You Love Me' during her live return in London last night (July 7).

The Tottenham soul singer performed at Camden Roundhouse as part of the iTunes Festival, just over a month after cancelling a number of US tour dates due to illness.

She became the latest in a long line of artists to cover Raitt's 1991 single - the likes of George Michael, Peter Andre and Bon Iver are among dozens of singers who have released versions of the track or performed it live.



Kicking off with 'Hometown Glory', Adele played a mix of tracks from her 2008 debut '19' and multi-million selling follow-up '21', including singles 'Chasing Pavements' and 'Make You Feel My Love'.

She also played fan favourite 'Rolling In The Deep' and 'Set Fire To The Rain' - you can watch footage of both by scrolling down clicking below.

The gig ended with 'Someone Like You', which earlier this week became the first single to sell more than one million copies in the UK this decade.

Adele played:

'Hometown Glory'
'I'll Be Waiting'
'Don't You Remember'
'Turning Tables'
'Set Fire To The Rain'
'If It Hadn't Been For Love'
'My Same'
'Take It All'
'Rumour Has It'
'Right As Rain'
'One And Only'
'Lovesong'
'Chasing Pavements'
'I Can't Make You Love Me'
'Make You Feel My Love'
'Rolling In The Deep'
'Someone Like You'


This year's iTunes Festival has already seen performances from Arctic Monkeys and Beady Eye, with shows from My Chemical Romance (9), Glasvegas (10) and Foo Fighters (11) due to follow later this month.
