Adele’s exclusive gig was brought to The Cavern on 5th January 2011 courtesy of Smooth FM and was the perfect way to kick off the Cavern’s year of events. Performing a mix of songs from her 2 albums ‘19’ and ‘21’, Adele sang with soul, precision and emotion as her and her pianist Miles captivated the intimate Live Lounge audience as they listened and watched the note perfect songstress intently. The performance was followed up with a relaxed Q&A session in an ‘audience with’ style that allowed for questions from the audience. Adele spoke with ease and provided anecdotes that showed off her confident, grounded and witty personality which, along with ‘that’ voice has been instrumental in her rise to fame these last 12 months.

2011 proved to be the year of Adele when her album ‘21’ (released on 24th January) debuted at number one in both the UK and US charts in its first week.
