Adele has pulled out a dirty joke to entertain guests in Adelaide last night after her stage over-rotated and pulled out the cable for lighting and sound. The Adelaide Oval stadium was left in darkness, and Adele was forced to improvise her entertainment.
In the darkness, she turned to cracking jokes, the first of which was a little more direct.
“Shall I tell you my filthy joke despite all the children here? I need more applause than that because I might offend someone,” she asked the crowd.
“What do you call a blonde standing on her head? A brunette with bad breath.”
The lights then came back on and Adele apologised to the crowds.
“I’m sorry about the power cut tonight. You’ll never guess what it was? So you know the band’s stage starts revolving after a little while, well as the stage revolved it pulled the power plug out so all the instruments went off,” she explained.
“I won’t be revolving that stage again, will I? Thank you for your patience with my absolutely useless banter and thank you for putting up with some terrible jokes.”
