The wait is over: Adele will play her first ever dates in Australia in February and March.

The global superstar will perform five stadium shows over Summer, with the tour kicking off in Perth on February 28 and continuing on to Brisbane (March 4), Sydney (March 10), Adelaide (March 17) and Melbourne (March 18). Tickets will go on sale on November 21.

Adele – who is currently performing in Mexico – has been teasing for a few months that a tour is imminent and finally revealed the news on Twitter in the early hours of this morning.
