Adele’s first tour of Australia tour is on track to be a record-breaker as ticket sales hurtle past 400,000 in less than a week on sale. 

Live Nation, the producers of Adele’s Live 2017 tour of Australasia, on Friday (Nov. 25) revealed a second and final Sydney performance has been added for ANZ Stadium on March 11 due to “phenomenal demand.”

The first Sydney show, scheduled for March 10, sold more than 90,000 tickets during Monday’s public on-sale and is on course to smash the venue’s attendance record for a concert and claim the record for the single biggest event held at the venue since 2002.

Since Adele's tour tickets were released to the public, two Melbourne stadiums shows have sold out and open air concerts in Brisbane, Perth and Sydney are at capacity. The Australian trek has grown from five to eight shows. 

According to an update issued by LN, Adele on Thursday sold out three dates -- more than 100,000 tickets -- at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand.

The 28-year-old singer announced her first trip to these parts with a handwritten note posted to Twitter. “G’Day it’s me... I was wondering if after 10 years in the game you’d finally like to meet me in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide,” she wrote. “Yep! I am coming Down Under.” 

The latest expansion of Adele's tour Down Under comes after the superstar singer announced two more concerts in her hometown of London next June and July and revealed she's off to have another baby. 

Her blockbuster international tour has just paused after 107 international shows in 10 months.
