Adele concerts are known to be emotional events, but one of her shows in Sydney over the weekend was emotional for a totally different reason. In case you missed it, a 47-year-old woman went into cardiac arrest during the singer’s performance, with security performing chest compressions on her for 15 to 20 minutes before ambulances arrived.
Adele stopped the show when she saw the commotion going on, and told the crowd that the show’s fireworks were being cancelled. A fan added that she was “visibly upset for the rest of the show.”
The next night Adele dedicated a song to the ill fan. "I knew what was going on, but I was really scared, and it was at this point I stopped the show to make sure she was OK,” Adele said. “I don't know if she's OK yet but I'd like to sing this song for her tonight."
Adele then sang “Take It All,” and added, “I wish you a speedy recovery. I look forward to finding out who you are, I don't know who she is yet and I'll be speaking to you soon, I hope."
