How popular can one singer get?

If it’s Adele, the sky seems to be the limit these days, as she has added a further four dates to the list of O2 shows she will be playing in the spring of 2016.

She had originally announced four dates at the arena on March 15, 16, 18 and 19, but has now added March 21 and 22 and April 4 and 5.

Tickets for the first four UK dates went on general sale on December 4, but sold out within a couple of hours. The next batch of dates are expected to go on December 7 at 9am .

Prices have not yet been announced for the extra dates, but it is likely they will mirror the £42.50-£108.25 price range for the first four shows.

Her third album 25 has sold 737,000 copies in the UK in just six days , overtaking the record of 696,000 set by Oasis’s Be Here Now in 1997.
