Adele's "25" tour has taken her to all corners of the globe over the last 12 months, beginning in Belfast last February and finishing in New Zealand the other night.

She reportedly told the 40,000-strong crowd in Auckland: "Touring isn't something I'm good at".

The British singer told fans at a concert in Auckland that she was not good at touring - and even acknowledged she feels "vulnerable" on stage, according to the New Zealand Herald.

In July, Adele will make her final stop on the tour she kicked off nearly a year ago to promote her Grammy-winning album 25. "The only reason I've toured is you", she said. "I'm not sure if touring is my bag", Adele added. For the record, she's on tour because she wanted to see fans who have been supporting her since. Adele's promoter Michael Coppel warned her fans Down Under that this could likely be her last series of shows in the region.

That's pretty cut-and-dried. To be frank, her identity as a touring musician never seemed integral to her overall career as a performer.

"I just spent two hours in hair and makeup", she quipped to concertgoers.

With her current tour dates concluding with four Wembley shows in London during June and July, Adele signalled at a recent Auckland gig that she may not return to life on the road. Until then, Adele will get to spend much more needed time with her son, Angelo.
