(Newser) – Adele fans who didn't catch her on her world tour that's winding down may be out of luck in the future. Adele told the audience during Sunday night's show in Auckland that "touring isn't something I'm good at" and she may not do it again. The New Zealand Herald has the full quote, and reports that she was crying: "Touring isn't something I'm good at ... applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable. I don't know if I will ever tour again. The only reason I've toured is you. I'm not sure if touring is my bag." The concert was Adele's last one before she formally finishes the tour in her hometown of London with four sold-out dates at Wembley Stadium this summer, reports the AP.

Adele sang through heavy rain in front of more than 40,000 fans at the outdoor show at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium. Photos show her in a drenched dress for part of the concert and also donning a pink poncho that she borrowed from a fan. She joked that she "just spent two hours in hair and makeup for nothing." The Herald notes that Adele called the tour "my greatest accomplishment in my career," and that might not be so far off: No other artist has sold out Mt Smart Stadium three times, the paper observes.
