Dickins says Adele's 2016 world tour exceeded even his expectations. "She hit continual home runs," says the London-born manager of his marquee client's eight-month, 107-date trek, which included eight sold-out shows at Los Angeles' Staples Center, and a headlining performance at England's Glastonbury Festival. "For her to connect with the 150,000 people who were there without a huge, bombastic production was probably the biggest highlight of the tour," says Dickins. Adele has sold 9.2 million copies of her third studio LP, 25, in the United States, and in 2016 won Billboard's top artist honors for a record third time.
