Adele announces 2016 North American tour

Hello, it's Adele, returning for a 2016 North American tour that will mark her first concert trek on this continent in four years. The tour comes on the heels of her recently released "25," which came out Nov. 20 and is already the top-selling album of the year in many part of the world, with 5 million copies sold so far in the U.S. alone.

Her North American tour kicks off July 5 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN, at Xcel Energy Center and November 15 at Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City. The tour will include multiple shows in most major markets, including six nights apiece at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden in New York. (A full list of dates and cities appears below).

Alas, perhaps because she is playing six Los Angeles shows, Adele's tour is skipping San Diego, where she delivered a mesmerizing concert at the SDSU Open Air Theatre Arena in 2011.

Adele, 27, announced her North American tour Monday morning on Twitter. He concerts here will follow a 2016 European tour that begins in February and sold out in a near-instant after going on sale.

Tickets for all her North American tour dates go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. local time via ticketmaster.com in some cities, and at axs.com for other cities, including Los Angeles. Tickets for the Los Angeles concerts are priced at $39.95 to $149.50 each, plus service charges.

As a prelude to the tour, the TV special "Adele Live in New York" airs nationally tonight on NBC and locally on Channel 7/39.

After its release on November 20, "25" immediately topped the charts in more than 100 countries. It is the first album to sell over 3 million copies in one week in the U.S., and the only album to sell over a million albums in 2 separate weeks.
