Adele’s back at it! After postponing a concert in Phoenix, Arizona, last week, Adele returned to the stage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The 28-year-old British songstress looked no worse for the wear while performing to the sold out arena, but backstage, she showed that she’s still recovering from her recent illness.
On Instagram she shared a black and white photo of herself seemingly blowing her nose during Saturday night’s show.
After having to postpone the Aug. 16 date, Adele powered through two L.A. shows in a row, and even had some fun with fans during Sunday night’s concert.
She invited one small female fan named Emerson on stage, even greeting her dog. An audience member recounted the event on Twitter, writing, “I was at the Adele concert and a little girl named Emerson yelled at her and asked to come on stage. Adele, adorable as always said.. A very British ‘oh alright then, come on up’ Emerson is 4 and it’s her bday. Her parents bring her up on stage. Adele chats her up. Then Adele asks, ‘and who's this?’ Emerson says, ‘Thats my mommy and my Mama’ and it took a moment of recognition but the crowd went NUTS.”
Though she’s had a very successful start to her North American leg of her tour, Adele did face some difficulties last week when she fell ill. On Wednesday, she apologized for having to postpone her Phoenix show.
“I can’t do my show tonight, my second show here. I’m really, really sorry,” she said in a video clip. “I’ve had a cold for a couple of days and I’ve been pushing through it and I did my show last night, and I loved it, but I pushed too hard. My cold has gotten the better of me.”
