The young 23 year Adele covers the 300th issue of Q Magazine. Adele told the magazine that she is frightened of playing huge audiences and is worried about having an ”anxiety attack”.
”I will not do festivals. The thought of an audience that big frightens the life out of me. I don’t think the music would work either. It’s all too slow. ‘I’d hate to book a festival and have a f***ing anxiety attack and then not go on stage, do you know what I mean. We had three nights on hold at The O2 and I was like “I wont play a festival. You think I’m gonna play a f***ing arena? Are you out of your mind? I’d rather play 12 years at the Barfly [small venue for indie bands] than one night at The O2! So I’ve made all those decisions and some people are pretty mortified. They think I’m mad.
