Adele serenades gay man after borrowing Pride flag


Adele gave a gay fan pride he will never forget during a comeback gig in London this weekend.

The British singer performed to a crowd of 65,000 at Hyde Park in the UK capital, a gig which coincided with Pride in London’s 50th anniversary celebrations.

During the concert, Adele acknowledged the occasion by performing draped in a rainbow flag, wishing the audience happy pride.

“I wore my hair down today to try and be a little trailing,” she told the crowd.

One of the spectators then told the crazy story of how the singer had borrowed the Progress Pride flag from his band in exchange for VIP seats at the concert.

The gay man, Dean, went to the concert with a couple of friends and explained everything on Twitter.

“Last night I was invited by Adele to sit on the side of the stage for her performance at @BSTHydePark. Here’s how the most random night of my life went! he wrote.

He said as they waited inside the venue, “a woman approached me and my friend and said she saw me carrying a pride flag.” He said the staff member told them ‘Adele needed it for her performance’.

“She asked if she could borrow mine so… OF COURSE I SAID YES!” he called back.

“Then we were taken to the Diamond VIP section and given LOTS of drink tokens.”

“I will never forget that night”

Dean explained that backstage they were hanging out with celebrities and watching Adele kick off the gig with Hello.

“Then, after two songs, the WEIRDEST moment of my life happened. @Adele, in front of 65,000 people asks where Jack and Dean are and calls us to the gate!” he said.

“We were pulled over the barrier and @adele told us she wanted to give us the best seats in the house. They certainly were!

“Then during ‘When We Were Young’, Adele appeared carrying the same flag we had bought for eight pounds at Holborn station hours before! I cried.

“To end the most magical, perfect and breathtaking Pride, Adele sang ‘Love Is A Game’, looked us straight in the eye and blew us a kiss.”

At the end of the concert, Adele reached out to her band and returned the flag to them.

“THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ADELE!!!! I will never forget this night and this pride!!!!” he tweeted.

Dean also posted a clip of him enjoying “the most awkward drunken conversation” of his life with Adele on stage.

Adele’s London gig was the first major gig in years

Over the weekend, London celebrated the historic 50th anniversary of the first British Pride Parade.

Adele’s concerts in Hyde Park were the singer’s first big gigs in five years.
