The singer took to Twitter on Friday to share her condolences with the affected fan. Entertainment Weekly shared the words of the star singer.
“I’m so sorry to hear that someone got hurt at my show tonight. It’s being investigated to ensure it won’t happen again.”
A spokesperson for the venue shared that the chain was a section of the production apparatus that fell and hit a concert-goer. The fan was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure. Additionally, the spokesperson shared that production crew were still investigating the incident.
The songstress was said to have completed her show without being made aware of the incident that transpired. They said a spokesperson shared how diligent the team was being to right this error, as BBC relayed.
“The lady was attended to by our own medical team and then taken to hospital as a precaution. The safety of every member of our audience is paramount and we are currently working with the promoter’s production team to establish why this happened and to ensure it does not happen again.”
Stuart Duffy, a witness to the event, added a picture of the set that malfunctioned and noted how when the unfortunate incident occurred, lights came on and security began moving people around as to be out of harms way of the apparatus.
A second show for her Glasgow fans will be performed on Saturday. The venue holds 13,000 people and Adele has sold out her shows for both concerts. Adele’s 25 album has been met with rave reviews and she has broken records for both sales of the album and tour sales.
In an interview last month that the superstar gave for the cover story in Vogue magazine, Adele spoke about her inspiration for her latest hit album that was long-awaited. The publication shares how Adele worked on the album with a number of artists from those who are “relatively unknown” to “established hitmakers.”
“[It’s] a bit of a letter to myself. It’s really about regrouping,” she explains, “because naturally me and my friends have dispersed. We all love each other still, but we don’t have time to be unconditional and 24/7…. My eyes were so cloudy for a year after I had my child, and I thought I would never regroup with myself, ever.”
Adele also went on to share what it was like working with Bruno Mars on the album, a musician she has always admired.
“I’ve always been a really big fan of Bruno, but when we worked together he was beyond. He can do anything, literally singing the best vocals you’ve ever heard live in your life while he is playing a drum or a bass or doing some mad percussion riff. I think he definitely will be the biggest, biggest, biggest artist in the world.”
Interestingly enough, even Adele gets nervous and shares that if it wasn’t for her fans, she wouldn’t tour at all.
“I’m only touring for the fans, to see the people that changed my life. There’s no need for me to tour. I’ll always be nervous, worrying whether I’m going to be good enough.”
Her fans are surely entirely appreciative that Adele tours for them, and it’s evident in her tour ticket sales.
