Adele rejects £80 million to tour because you can't put a price on family

When she's not writing, Claire Gillespie can most often be found wiping snotty noses, picking up Lego, taking photos of her cat or doing headstands.

Adele would rather spend time with family than tour the world to promote third album say reports

From SheKnows UK
It’s hard to know what to believe about Adele, who has shunned the spotlight in recent years and rarely gives interviews. If recent reports are to be believed she has turned down an £80 million offer to tour when her much-awaited third album is released later this year.

Despite the huge demand for a world tour 27-year-old Adele isn’t interested, reported Simon Boyle in the Sunday People.

“There are no concrete plans for a tour. In fact, people at the label admit they are clueless about whether Adele will tour at all. It's understood she is not keen to travel with [her son] Angelo as she adores quiet family life,” a source told Boyle.

It's no secret that Adele doesn’t enjoy performing live.

"I'm scared of audiences," she told Rolling Stone back in 2012. "I get sh***y scared. One show in Amsterdam, I was so nervous I escaped out the fire exit. I've thrown up a couple of times. Once in Brussels, I projectile-vomited on someone. I just gotta bear it. But I don't like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot.

"My nerves don't really settle until I'm offstage," she added. "I mean, the thought of someone spending $20 to come and see me and saying ‘Oh, I prefer the record and she's completely shattered the illusion’ really upsets me. It's such a big deal that people come give me their time."

Since Angelo's birth in October 2012 Adele has only performed live once — singing her Golden Globe-winning James Bond theme song "Skyfall" at the 2013 Oscars. This was a full 12 months after her previous live performance: "Rolling in the Deep" at the 2012 Grammys.

Billboard reported last week that Adele has been working on new music with the likes of OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Danger Mouse and Max Martin and that a November release is looking likely for the follow up to 21.

Apparently Ed Sheeran has heard that “it’s really good,” telling Capital FM: “'I haven't heard [Adele's album], but everyone I know who've (sic) worked on it is just like, 'Dude… that record!' Apparently, it’s really good.”

Adele fans will be delighted to get their hands on some new material but it looks like those hoping to see the singer perform the tracks will have to be extremely patient.
