Adele recently dropped her newest album, 25, after a five-year hiatus, which is a long time for a superstar in the music industry. Now that she's back, Adele is getting back to the full swing of pop stardom by announcing that her American tour dates are set. She'll be going back on tour for the first time in half a decade.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Adele made the announcement of her American tour dates on Monday morning, the same day she's scheduled to appear for an hour-long concert special airing on NBC titled Adele Live in New York City.
According to the Independent, there was a massive rush for ticket sales after Adele announced her U.K. tour, and fans can expect the same craze now that the American dates have been released. And, there are a lot of them. Adele will be doing a staggering 100+ shows across the United States. Luckily for Adele, that includes multiple performances in several cities.
However, including the shows in the United Kingdom, Adele will be traveling to a total of 56 different cities next year. Quite an exhaustive return after a five year break. However, Adele claims she's ready. She told the crowd during the taping of Adele Live in New York City, "I've been dying to do a f***ing show."

It is anticipated that Adele will sell so many tickets to the shows in New York and Los Angeles, that she may have to schedule even more shows at the same venues. But, you shouldn't rely on that chance if you're interested in catching Adele on her comeback tour.
You can buy seats to an Adele show at Ticketmaster, but most general public tickets don't go on sale for another three days, starting December 17 at 10 a.m. EST. You can also buy tickets directly from Adele at her website.
Even if you don't score tickets to an Adele show, you can catch Adele Live in New York City tonight at 10 p.m. on NBC.
