Adele comments on Brexit during Glastonbury headline set

'It’s a bit weird the stuff that’s going on at the moment,' singer said during Worthy Farm appearance

Adele alluded to the EU referendum result during her Glastonbury Festival headline set.

The Tottenham singer closed out the second day of the festival on the Pyramid Stage. It was the first time she has topped the bill at the festival.

During the set, Adele asked people where they were from and members of the crowd started booing when certain places were mentioned, such as Coventry and Stoke-On-Trent.

“I’ll have no fucking booing at my show,” Adele said. “After what went on the other day, are you mad?”

The UK went to the polls on Thursday and narrowly decided to leave the European Union.

Shortly after she dedicated ‘Make You Feel Me Love’ to her grandfather and said: “It’s a bit weird the stuff that’s going on at the moment for all of us and we need to look after each other. Happy [Gay] Pride everybody, as well”.

During the early stages of the performance, Adele exclaimed and told the crowd: “This is the best moment of my life”. She also asked for the lights to shine on the audience so she could see the massive turnout.


Elsewhere in the set, Adele changed the lyrics of ‘Hello‘ as she kicked off her set – she changed the lyrics from “I’m in California dreaming” to “I’m in Glastonbury dreaming”.

“Fuck, you lot are amazing!” she exclaimed midway through the song, after laughing when the crowd started singing along at great volume.

“I don’t know what to say to you at the moment,” she admitted after ‘Hello’ came to a close, before launching into ‘Rumour Has It’.

Adele also asked her Glastonbury audience if any of them had “had a shit” while waiting for her to come on.

“Have any of you had a piss down the front?” she asked the crowd after the first few songs. “Have any of you had a shit?”

As the crowd cheered, she exclaimed: “Oh my god, someone put their hand up! You had a shit?”
