The stirring trailer opens with an onscreen message, calling Adele’s September performance at the iconic London venue “a dream-come-true moment and the highlight of her record-breaking year with 21,” and features the British belter getting emotional backstage, singing hits like (next 21 single) “Set Fire to the Rain,” “Chasing Pavements,” “Someone Like You,” which sees her tearing up as the audience sings the chorus, and, of course, “Rolling in the Deep.” She also jokes about dying her hair blond just for the show because she was “hoping to be treated a bit differently; but so far, not yet.”
The Royal Albert Hall CD/DVD will be available in the U.S. on November 29, and features behind-the-scenes interviews and her full 90-minute performance, including covers of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and the Steeldrivers’ “If It Hadn’t Been for Love.”
Of course, for many of her fans around the world, they won’t have to wait until the 29th to see the film: because Adele is taking it on the road, with a series of free premieres in movie theaters in 26 cities around the world. There are only two U.S. screenings scheduled — November 15 at the Sony Music Theatre in Los Angeles and November 16 at the Angelika Film Center in New York — and fans can apply for free tickets through Adele’s website. Lucky winners will be notified by email on Friday.
Earlier this week, Adele underwent successful vocal cord surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center and will spend the remainder of the year recovering.
