Vocalist saw the celebrated performer at London's Eventim Apollo this past year
Adele has described how Kate Bush's recent comeback inspired her.
In 2014, Bush played her first live shows in 35 years during a residency at London's Eventim Apollo. Adele has shown that it affected her to make new music and that she attended one of the concerts.
In an interview together with the New York Times, Adele said: "I read someplace, and I do not understand if it is accurate or not, that [Bush's son] said when he was 16, 'I need to understand now why everyone adores you.' And it makes me emotional. After that show, it was: 'I do not need to wait. I do not need to wait till my child is 16, I need to reveal him now.'"
Similar to Bush, Adele seldom plays live, but lately announced a complete UK and Irish tour for 2016.
Adele discussed why she rarely performs live elsewhere in the Times interview: "Performing to that many individuals for every night, for that long, I discover something really alone about it. Since you are performing for like, 20,000 people every night, but, which seems bizarre you leave on your own. You do not go home and, like, share a bed with 20,000 individuals and have a small pyjama party and see films."
She continued: "Clearly Iwill get my pals with me and Iwill get my family with me, but the idea of how alone that could be frightens me more in relation to the load of doing a global tour."
Adele's tour includes dates in Belfast, Dublin, Manchester, London, Birmingham and Glasgow before heading to Europe for appearances around the continent.
