Adele performs onstage during The 58th Grammy Awards at Staples Center on Feb. 15, 2016 in Los Angeles.

Dance, sing, cry, holler all you like. But if you film Adele’s concert instead of participating, watch out! 

The British superstar took offense with a ticket-holder who chose to watch a recent show though a camera monitor. "Yeah, I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera because I'm really here in real life. You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera," she told the audience.

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

Adele’s Live 2016 trek in support of her blockbuster third album 25 moves on to Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome this Wednesday (June 1). Watch the fan-filmed clip below.
