Adele Scolds Security Guard At Second Melbourne Show

Adele stopped her show in Melbourne, Australia on Sunday night (19Mar17) to tell off a security guard who had been asking fans to sit down.

After finishing her song Water Under The Bridge, Adele called out the security guard and asked them to quit telling members of the audience at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium to stop dancing and sit down in their seats.

“Excuse me sir? I know you work here but can you stop telling people to sit down? This is a music show,” she said, according to footage posted on social media. “If people can’t see then they can stand up.

“If you’re moaning about people dancing, what the fuck have you come to a show for? If I see one more person be told to sit down, I swear to God… Right, let’s go, excuse my language.”

REVIEW: ADELE PLAYS HER FIRST EVER MELBOURNE SHOW

The 28-year-old isn’t the first to scold security guards for being too strict on fans; Elton John reportedly threatened to walk out of his performance at Leicestershire County Cricket Club in England over the club’s crowd control tactics in June (16). And the year before he went even further, upsetting one female security guard with a foul-mouthed outburst in Gloucester, England. He later invited the guard onstage for a hug and to apologise.

Sunday night’s show marked the last stop on Adele’s Australia tour before she moves to New Zealand. And during the Melbourne concert she also helped two fans get engaged.

She reportedly spotted a man called Chris crying as she belted out her hit ballad Hello and invited him and his partner Wade onstage. The unexpected meet and greet turned into a surprise proposal, as Wade used the opportunity to get down on one knee and pop the question to his boyfriend.

Adele gave them both hugs as Chris said yes and insisted, “That wasn’t planned… I had no idea.”
