Adele kicked off her US tour last night (Tuesday, July 5) by paying tribute to Prince in the late musician’s home state of Minnesota.
The British singer played the Xcel Energy Center in St Paul, Minnesota, with her set including hits from her entire back-catalogue, ‘Hello’, ‘Rumour Has It’ and ‘Skyfall’ among them.
Billboard reports that as Adele departed the stage before her encore, the big screen displayed the video for Prince’s 1994 hit ‘The Most Beautiful Girl In The World’ in full. She also claimed that she didn’t feel worthy of covering a song by the late star, saying, “I did maybe consider covering a song, but fuck it, it’s Prince!”
