Adele: “I can’t wait for Wembley”

The singer also picked up two awards at this year's BBC Music Awards, which were held tonight (December 12)

Adele has said that she “can’t wait” for her set of huge gigs at Wembley Stadium next summer.

The Tottenham-born singer was tonight honoured at the BBC Music Awards – which were held at the ExCel in London earlier this evening (December 12) – winning BBC Radio 2 Album of the Year (for her 2015 album ’25’) and Song of the Year (‘Hello’), which added to the two awards that she picked up at 2015’s ceremony.

Adele couldn’t attend the ceremony at the ExCel due to touring commitments, and, after letting Robbie Williams accept her Album of the Year award on her behalf, the singer sent in a message from LA that referenced her four live shows at the 90,000-capacity stadium on June 28-29 and July 1-2.

“Hello again,” she wrote. “I’m so sorry I’m not there. I’ll be home soon and I can’t wait. It’s been a long year on the road and this make me feel a little less homesick.

“I can’t wait for Wembley and then to get back to normal. Special thanks to all my fans for voting for the song, you are all amazing. Merry Christmas. Love, Adele.”

Elsewhere at the BBC Music Awards, there were triumphs for the likes of Coldplay and The 1975 – see the full winners list here.
