Adele's last proper show in the U.S. was in front of 19,000 fans at Los Angeles' historic Hollywood Bowl in June of 2009.  Known for her incredible live performances, fans will get a sneak peek of Adele when she appears on the Today show (February 18), Late Show with David Letterman (February 21), The Ellen DeGeneres Show (February 24), ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! (February 24), The Early Show (February 25) and E!'s Chelsea Lately (February 28).

Recently released overseas, 21 soared to the #1 position on the charts in several countries including the U.K., Ireland, Germany, Holland, New Zealand, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium.  In her native U.K. alone, 21 sold an astounding 208,000 copies in its first week and is already certified Platinum.  "Rolling In The Deep," the infectious lead single from 21, has critics raving.  Rolling Stone called the track "her best yet," while USA Today called it "Mesmerizing."  The video for "Rolling In The Deep" was directed by Sam Brown (Jay-Z, Foo Fighters) and is currently the #1 video on VH1's Top 20 Countdown.
