Adele Is Reportedly Negotiating A World Tour With A $30 Million Apple Sponsorship
The Adele juggernaut continues apace with rumors that a blockbuster world tour is on the horizon. The New York Post reports that the mega-selling diva is currently negotiating with tour operators Live Nation and AEG. According to the article, her team has already approached Apple to be the corporate sponsor. The asking price? An eye-watering $30 million. The Grammy winner is also pushing the tech company to sell new LP 25 in its retail stores. (Sorry, Starbucks).
With “Hello” breaking sales, streaming and VEVO records at will, Adele can pretty much write her own contract. I can’t imagine the Brit performing her gut-wrenching ballads in stadiums (she excels in intimate venues), so the tour could be really, really long given the inevitable demand or just really, really expensive. I’m guessing the latter. In any case, it will be the hottest ticket of 2016.
