For ten years Adele has captivated us time and time again with her powerhouse vocals, catchy pop melodies and lyrics about love, life and heartbreak.

Earlier this week a cryptic Adele TV ad fuelled rumours about a long-awaited Australian tour. Adele took to Twitter on Tuesday to officially announce the news, saying “Yep! I am coming down under”.

The tweet, inspired by her own recent hit Hello, confirmed that the singer-songwriter will be playing shows in five major cities, kicking things off in Perth in February 2017.

“G’Day it’s me... I was wondering if after 10 years in the game you’d finally like to meet me in: Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide,” read the tweet in the form of a cheeky hand-written note.

Adele’s Australian fans have waited ten years for this tour – the same number of Grammys the British songstress has under her belt. In keeping with this, read on to learn ten things about Adele and get to know her a little better in the lead up to her visit to Oz.
