Hello. It's me. I was wondering ...My wife and I recently made a short trek east to Atlanta to see Adele. We'd bought concert tickets in December, 2015, so enough time had lapsed that I'd moved beyond my Adele "phase." Between songs (she performed 17) I discovered how charming she is, a superstar not too big to sing "Happy Birthday" to a man in the audience or bring a girl on stage to take a selfie.
The concert's sophisticated production values were practically minimalist, with dramatic flourishes(rain, wind, confetti) used sparingly. Juxtaposed was a sometimes bawdy humorist/songbird who can really sing and write ballads that reflect well on this generation. Besides her incredible talent, Adele's ability to be classy and common simultaneously is a real showstopper.
