As if you didn't know, Adele's first of three New Zealand shows took place at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium last night.
Despite repeated warnings of a prompt 7.30 start from promoters, it was 7.52 when the giant eyes on the circular screen flicked opening and Adele took the stage in front of 45,000 fans.
Adele's Kiwi makeup artist Michael Ashton was sung Happy Birthday by the 15-time Grammy-award winner and the crowd.
Adele told the crowd Ashton has been her makeup artist for 10 years.
"He has been my makeup artist since day one. His name's Michael Ashton and he's Kiwi. He was born in Hamilton.
"It's his birthday today. I know that all of his family are here. Do you want to sing Happy Birthday to Michael?"
Adele fans and the pop star then erupted into a rendition of Happy Birthday.
Later in the show Adele paid tribute to the victims of the Westminster terror attack during the concert, dedicating her song Make You Feel My Love to those who died.
The London-born singer said it felt "strange" to not be at home with her friends and family after the attack.
"Today there was a terror attack in my home town of London," Adele, 28, told the audience.
"Literally I'm on the other side of the world, and I want them to see our lights, and to hear us, you know, we're thinking of them.
"It's very strange not being home. All I want to do today is be at home and be with my friends and family. Everyone's fine but there are four people that aren't fine.
"So let's dedicate this to them tonight, and to my home town, which is my soulmate. This is Make You Feel My Love."
