Adele will give her new album 30 a serious send-off party with a primetime U.K. concert special.
An Audience With Adele will beam out Sunday, Nov. 21 on the free-to-air ITV channel and its on-demand ITV Hub platform.

With her fourth studio album set to drop two days prior, on Nov. 19, ITV’s execs anticipate big things from its Adele special.
“As one of the world’s most in-demand stars, we are beyond thrilled to bring this one-off night to ITV,” comments Katie Rawcliffe, head of entertainment commissioning at ITV. “Adele is a remarkable artist and this will be a very special event.”
International broadcast partners for the TV special have not been announced.

The first single from it, “Easy On Me,” is currently No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts, and on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, where it broke streaming records in its first week.
Adele wasted no time in claiming this month as her own. On Monday (Nov. 1), she shared the track list for 30, as well as the bonus tracks included on a Target deluxe edition. A week before, Adele announced a pair of 2022 summer concerts at London’s Hyde Park. with pre-sales opening last Thursday (Oct. 28). All tickets for both shows have sold out.
