While Adele was on tour earlier this week performing at the O2 Academy in Newcastle, the singer paid tribute to the late great Amy Winehouse.
Adele was able to overcome her terrible chest infection that had her canceling shows and returned to the stage ready to give fans an amazing show. The singer dedicated the Bob Dylan song ‘Make You Feel My Love’ to Amy on what would have been her 28th birthday. She said; “This is for Amy Winehouse, whose birthday it is today.”
The touching tribute turned the audience into a pool of tears and one crowd member said; “I’ve never been to a gig where I’ve seen so many people wiping away their tears… including myself.”
Adele’s manager Jonathan Dickins revealed that the singer isn’t going to rush into making a third album. He said; “I want to give her a little bit of time off and then hopefully we’ll start looking at some stuff in November just to get into looking to make music again rather than any specific reason, dates or when it’s coming or anything. It will come when it’s right and she’s a great judge of that. I’m a good judge of that and ultimately the label is not a label where we are having to fight numbers and figures and quarterly results. We haven’t even had a discussion about album three at this stage. And it will come when it’s right. It’s as simple as that.”
