Oscar-winning singer Adele suffered from “severe bowel movements” before kicking off her tour.
The British singer, 27, delighted fans when she announced her intention to tour with her comeback album 25, and hit the road for the first time in five years.
But the prospect of entertaining 11,000 devotees at the SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland, was daunting for Adele, reported BBC online.
“This is my first time in an arena ever,” she shared.
“I have actually been myself all day, literally. I’ve had severe bowel movements. When I came up that stage in the dark, oh my God, I thought I was going to die. I woke up this morning sounding like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
“My voice was so deep because I slept with the air con on. And then I had bowel movements because of tonight. Then Gatwick (airport) closed and I thought my boyfriend wasn’t going to get here on time.”
She even had to turn to medication to make sure she could get through the show, adding, “I’ve had an Imodium (diarrhoea remedy) so it’s going to be alright!”
