Adele Stops Concert to Scold Fan for Filming Her: ‘This Is a Real Show!’

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 12.48.58 PMIn life, there are two things that are almost certainly true. One: some people with a knack for filming every great life experience fail to live in the moment. Two: a lot of talented musicians don’t like it when people come to see them, just to get distracted by something that detracts from a chance to appreciate the artistry.

Global superstar Adele held a concert at Italy’s Arena di Verona over the weekend, and she told an audience member that it made no sense for her to enjoy the show through a lens when the singer was performing in front of her.

“Can you stop filming me with a video camera, because I’m really here in real life?” Adele said. “You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera.”

There’s a certain irony to the fact that Adele’s comments were captured by someone else’s cell phone camera, but the singer-songwriter pointed out that the lady brought an excessive amount of hardware to the show.

“Can you take your tripod down?” Adele continued. “This isn’t a DVD, this is a real show, and I would really like you to enjoy my show because there’s lots of people outside that couldn’t come in.”
