Adele has spoken about her attitude towards touring in the future, saying she would be “fine” if she never heard an audience’s applause again.
The singer began a 107-date world tour in February and is currently midway through its extensive North American leg. Her final date is due to take place in Phoenix, Arizona on November 21.
“I’d still like to make records, but I’d be fine if I never heard [the applause] again,” Adele told Vanity Fair.
“I’m on tour simply to see everyone who’s been so supportive. I don’t care about money. I’m British, and we don’t have that… thing of having to earn more money all the time.”
She added later in the interview: “All of my relationships are more important to me than any tour I’ll ever do. If my relationship with [partner] Simon or my relationship with [son] Angelo started to flounder a bit now, I would pull out of my tour.”
“My life is more important to me than anything I’m doing because how the fuck am I supposed to write a record if I don’t have a life?” Adele continued. “If I don’t have a real life, then it’s game over anyway.”
During the interview, Adele also spoke candidly about her battle with postnatal depression after giving birth to son Angelo in 2012.
