Video Shows Adele Stopping Gig After One Of Her Fans Fainted

A video has resurfaced that shows Adele breaking off a song mid-way through to ensure that a fan who was suffering with a medical issue could receive treatment. You can see the video of that incident below.


Since eight people died during a performance by Travis Scott at Astroworld festival in Houston, much thought and investigation has gone into the circumstances that could have led to the tragedy.

Hundreds more people were injured when the crowd surged forward around half an hour into Scott's performance in Texas on Friday night, and those killed were aged between 14 and 27, although the age of one victim has yet to be determined.

However, people online have been speculating as to whether more could be done to prevent the tragedy, with many people sharing examples from other artists who have had to deal with such events.

One such example was at an Adele gig, whilst the British singer was making her way through one of her biggest tracks, 'Rolling in the Deep'.

In the short video, which has been viewed more than 17.3 million times, Adele stopped the musicians and performance in the midst of the chorus, saying: "Stop, stop, stop - someone's fainted again. Excuse me, medic, right in the middle."

Turning to the medical team, she went on: "Can you see?

"Can someone act like they care, please? Someone's fainted over there."

Returning to the person in trouble, she added: "Is anyone coming to you?

"Oh, I can't believe that. I can't come. They're not listening to me."

Eventually, the medical team managed to get through to the person in need, and Adele asked if they were OK, before returning to the performance.

Obviously, what happened at Astroworld is a completely different set of circumstances, and there's every chance that Scott simply didn't know what was happening.

However, some have suggested that more could have been done.

"All she had to say was stop. It was that easy," one said.

Another commented: "She stopped for one person passing OUT. Imagine not stopping for 8 passing AWAY."

As we've said, that might be a slightly unfair opinion, given that no-one knows what Scott could see from the stage, let alone whether anything more could have been done about it.

In a statement after the incident, Scott said: My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival,

"Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into the tragic loss of life."
