Adele to Perform One-Night-Only Concert NBC Special



    Adele is taking over television.

    NBC announced Friday that the 27-year-old "Hello" singer will perform a special one-night only concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York on Tuesday, Nov. 17. The event will be recorded for a one-hour NBC special, "Adele Live in New York City," set to air Monday, Dec. 14, at 10 p.m. It will be her first U.S. concert since 2011.

    Ticketing details will be made available via the singer's website.

    Beth McCarthy-Miller has been tapped to direct  "Adele Live in New York City." Adele, Lorne Michaels and Jonathan Dickins serve as its executive producers.

    Adele's third studio album, "25," is out Nov. 20. To celebrate its release, the British singer is scheduled to perform on three NBC shows: "Saturday Night Live" on Nov. 21, "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Nov. 23, and "Today" on Nov. 25. Adele made her U.S. television debut on NBC’s "Today" in summer 2008.

    Last week, Adele released "Hello," which serves as the lead single from "25"; it was written with producer Greg Kurstin. Xavier Dolan directed the music video, which broke the Vevo record by receiving over 27.7 million views within a 24-hour span, held previously by Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood," which accumulated 20.1 million views in the same period. It also broke the record for shortest time to garner 100 million Vevo views, previously held by Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball."

    "This song was a massive breakthrough for me with my writing because it'd been pretty slow up to this point, and I felt after I worked with Greg on this, it all poured right out of me," Adele told SiriusXM last week. "Straight away, I felt a little bit silly singing 'Hello, it's me,' but straight away I loved the verse and I knew it was going to be the first thing I came back with me." Additionally, in an interview with Apple Music, she said, "I knew straight away that it'd be the first thing that everyone would hear and that it would open my album. It took some convincing, but by the time the production was done and we finished the song, everyone liked it."
