Footage of Adele performing at a tiny music venue in Southampton has recently resurfaced online, perhaps serving as a reminder to us all why it’s important to support our local live music scene. The footage was shot at former Above Bar venue, Hamptons, in October 2007 when she just still just 19. It was shot just days before she released debut single, ‘Hometown Glory’. Armed with just a guitar and her mum in the audience, her powerful voice in the intimate venue was an early glimpse for the lucky few who attended the gig – just months later Adele would become a worldwide household name.
With under 2,000 views, it must be one of the most under-watched video’s of Adele’s on the internet.
