Adele’s Best Quotes from her Aussie Concerts

Adele's best quotes

Music superstar Adele wowed Brisbane at the weekend on her first-ever Australian tour. The singer also proved herself the undisputed Queen of Onstage Banter. Here are Adele’s best quotes so far.

60,000 of us poured into Brisbane’s Gabba to watch Adele deliver a collection of her hits over the weekend.

Brisbane fans took to social media to rave not only about the singer’s stunning vocals but also her hilarious banter. The singer opened up to the audience as though among friends. But she included a few choice words for local politicians.

“Throughout the show, I will talk quite a lot, because when I’m nervous I do talk. You’re cheering now, but when it turns out the show is about five hours with about ten songs, you’ll be booing me at that point,” she quipped in Perth.

So here are Adele’s best quotes from her first Australian shows

Brisbane politicians bickering about her venue

“I know there was a bit of controversy about me playing the Gabba. I think they should shut up with their bloody moaning. F-cking hell, shut up! I’m happy to be in Brisbane. I’m sorry if I’m not where you want me to be but I’m here so shut up.”

Australian wildlife

“There’s a cockroach on the stage, but I’m not going to freak out because you’re all used to it. There’s a f-cking cockroach on stage… And a f-cking fly in my tea!”

“There’s a beetle on my stage… I just saw a cockroach. Oh my god, run for your life… I’m loving it, it’s a sanctuary up here.”

Her near-wardrobe malfunction in Brisbane

“I nearly tripped up those stairs, did you see me? I’ve never worn a dress like this. I’m basically celebrating Beauty and the Beast coming out… but I forgot to lift it up and tried to run up and nearly fell over. I’m sure you heard my dodgy note afterwards, I f-cking shit myself.”

Australian weather

“Obviously I’m not cut out for this weather and I can’t have air con because it dries out my vocal chords, so I’ve been sweating like a pig.

“I’ve only got one of these dresses, so it’s going to stink in a few shows.

“My makeup has already come off. I’m shining. Shall I wipe it? I don’t know, maybe it makes me look a bit more real. I’m sure you’re not sweating as much as me because you’re used to it. But you also haven’t got your face on a 40-foot-high screen in front of this many people. Oh my god, even my eyelids are sweating.”

Her touring schedule

“I’m knackered. I don’t know how Beyonce does it.”


“All I wanna do is have a Smirnoff Ice, but I can’t drink. It’s alright to have one, right? Do you have Smirnoff Ice here, the alcopop? F-cking love Smirnoff Ice!

“Normally I can drink anyone under the table but I can’t do that with an Australian. I’ll get alcohol poisoning.”

Internet trolls

“At the Grammy’s, I wore this green dress and everyone said I looked like Fiona from Shrek. They did! I don’t f-cking care. It was Givenchy Couture. They can say what they want!”

What she wants us to take from her music

“I hope that you all love music and it narrates your life and soundtracks it and it helps you because that’s what music does for me. I just want to you know I really appreciate you coming out to my concert. This is my first ever stadium show and I will never, ever, ever forget this, thank you so much. I hope it was worth the wait.”

Adele will next perform in Sydney next weekend, followed by Adelaide, Melbourne and New Zealand in the coming weeks.
