Adele to play two shows at Lisbon’s MEO Arena

Singer/songwriter Adele – recently described as one of Britain’s most successful exports – is coming to Portugal for the first time, to perform two concerts on May 21 and 22 at Lisbon’s MEO Arena.

The star best known for hits ‘Somebody Like You’, ‘Rolling in the Deep’ and ‘Skyfall’ confirmed the news herself on her Facebook page.

Ticket sales will begin on December 4 with prices yet to be revealed.

Born in London in 1988, Adele released her latest album ‘25’ on November 20.

Within four days, it had sold 538,000 copies and is close to becoming the all-time fastest-selling album in the UK, with only Oasis’ ‘Be Here Now’ (696,000) left to beat.

‘Hello’, the album’s first single, has also become the first single to sell over one million digital downloads in a week.
