The Adele superfan who went viral after the singer defended him from her own concert security has shared his own video footage of the incident and thanked the singer.
On Monday, multiple videos of Adele defending the unseen audience member from security at her Weekends With Adele residency in Vegas went viral.
During Water Under the Bridge, Adele stopped singing and called out security staff for repeatedly “bothering” the man.
“What are you doing? Why are you all bothering him? Could you leave him alone, please?” Adele asked.
“They won’t bother you again, my darling. You enjoy the show. Leave him alone.”
She explained, “He’s been bothered the whole show by security and other people sitting behind him. He’s here to have fun. All of you are here to have fun.”
People wondered exactly what was happening in the crowd. The fan later identified himself and shared his own video footage of the incident.
In a trippy panoramic video he posted to TikTok, the concertgoer is confronted by staff after he was standing in his seat excitedly singing along to Adele.
@juanp_lastra Adele thank you so much for this breathtaking night and for standing up for me, so that I could live your concert as it should be. I’m also sorry that I didnt respond back to anyrhing you asked me. you started talking to me and I literally stopped breathing. I had been planning to come to this concert for over a year and I finally had the opportunity to come see most beautiful glorious woman this earth has gotten. I still can not wrap my head around the fact that I was in the same room as ADELE, sang every song with her, and she even stopped the show to defend me. I did not expected everyone in my section to be mad at me for having the time of my life and wanting to stand up and sing with her but I honestly did not care at all about what anyone was saying to me I just was in awe with the master piece I was watching with my own eyes. I did not have time for them haters. @Adele Access #adele #weekendswithadele #lasvegas #ceasarspalace🇵🇷 ♬ original sound – juanp_lastra

The viral moment comes at a time of big online debates over concert etiquette. But after seeing the new Adele footage, many came to the fan’s defence.
Others were confused by the other concertgoers’ low energy at an Adele concert.
“Why do people come to concerts to sit and be boring!?!? I will never understand!! Sing your heart out king!” one wrote.
“This happened to me as well. The man who told me to sit down was escorted out,” another added.
