It may feel like it’s been an eternity, but Adele is back. The British singer will perform a one-night performance at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall on November 17. The performance will be taped for a broadcast, Adele Live In New York City, that will air on NBC on December 14.   

Adele has a lot in the works for the winter, as just eight days following her performance at the legendary venue, Adele will perform on NBC’s The Today show.  On November 21, the singer is scheduled to be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live.  So far, Adele’s Radio City Music Hall date in New York City is the only performance on her tour calendar. With it being her only date, fans can book a flight to New York City on Hipmunk.com to get to Radio City Music Hall from any major city or airport in the country. In addition to flights, Hipmunk has hotels in New York City near the airport or in the center on Manhattan that can be booked to complete any and all travel logistics.

Adele’s previous North American tour run, “Adele Live,” averaged $246 on the secondary market, with tickets as expensive as $595 for her United Palace Theatre performance in New York City. If the expensive of that date is any indication, the singer’s Radio City Music Hall show should climb to even higher prices. Although tickets for the show have yet to go on sale, fans can expect to see large price tags when the tickets do hit the secondary market.

Adele’s next album 25 will debut on November 21, and it is already set to clear the 1 million mark in first-week sales, as reported by Billboard. The album’s first single “Hello” hit the web last week, and broke records on Vevo and YouTube. Even more impressive for Adele, is that her video clip to “Hello” was streamed more than 1 million times per hour, passing 100 million global views in its first week.

Adele is no stranger to massive success. Her second album, 21, was released in February of 2011 and became one of the longest-running No. 1 albums in history, as it spent over 18 weeks at No. 1.  The album 21 went on to sell approximately 30 million copies worldwide, a feat that kept her on top during the age of digital streaming.
