When the power was accidentally cut during her show in Adelaide, Australia, on Monday night (March 13), Adele did what comes naturally: she told a dirty joke to pass the time. The singer, known for her bawdy sense of humor and booming laugh had to kill some time during the gig when a power plug was accidentally yanked out by her revolving stage, forcing her to vamp while the crew fixed the problem.
"So, we're having a technical difficulty. I'm not quite sure what it is. Shall I try and tell some jokes?" she asked the crowd. "Our power has gone out under the stage, so who knows how long we're going to be doing this for? Shall I tell you my filthy joke despite all the children here?" she continued. "I need more applause than that because I might offend someone."
The outage at The Oval lasted five minutes. Check out this report on the incident:
