Adele Gets BBC and NBC Television Specials
Published Oct 27, 2015UK soul-pop powerhouse Adele recently revealed plans for her next album and delivered a video for the comeback single "Hello." Upping the anticipation for the forthcoming 25 LP even further, the singer has now been granted her very own television special.
Going by the name Adele at the BBC, the hour-long program will feature performances of both old favourites and tracks from Adele's new album. Hosted by Graham Norton, it will also feature interviews with the singer about her life and career.
"I can't wait for the show," said Adele [via The Hollywood Reporter]. "The BBC has been wonderful to me over the years, and Graham and I get on great, so it's going to be a laugh."
Norton added, "This is the music event of the year, and I'm thrilled to be part of bringing it to BBC One. This opportunity to spend an hour with Adele, her music and her stories is a truly rare treat. If I wasn't hosting this special I'd be sat at home watching it!"
Tickets will be available to the taping via a lottery system. The special is scheduled to tape on November 2 and will be aired internationally under the title Adele Live in London, courtesy of BBC Worldwide.
The performance will mark Adele's first since she took the stage at the 85th Academy Awards in 2013, where she took home an Oscar for "Skyfall."
Adele's 25 is due out on November 20.
